Flames recall Blair Jones, place David Jones on IR
Blair Jones was recalled by the Calgary Flames from the AHL, and forward David Jones was placed on injured reserve

The Calgary Flames recalled center Blair Jones from the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League on Thursday.

Jones, who has spent parts of seven NHL seasons with the Flames and Tampa Bay Lightning, had an assist, nine penalty minutes and a team-high plus-3 rating in two games for the Heat.

Forward David Jones (upper-body injury) was placed in injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 9, and is considered week-to-week. The Flames also activated defenseman Chris Breen from the injured non-roster list and assigned him to Abbotsford on a conditioning loan.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
