Seth Jones is a defenseman for the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound defenseman has solid athletic bloodlines -- his father, Popeye Jones, played 11 seasons in the NBA. The top-ranked player in NHL Central Scouting's midterm ranking of North American skaters eligible for the 2013 NHL Draft, Jones excelled the last two seasons for the U.S. National Team Development Program and won a gold medal with the United States at the 2013 World Junior Championship. Jones has offered to maintain a monthly blog for NHL.com that will chronicle his season leading up to the 2013 NHL Draft.
The past couple of months have been very busy, but exciting at the same time.
The month of February was a roller-coaster for the team. Our high was a five-game winning streak, and our low was a three-game losing streak. Overall, we played some pretty good hockey throughout the month. And we are extremely confident in the way we are playing as a team right now.
