The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that it has recalled forward David Jones
from the Lake Erie Monsters, the team’s American Hockey League affiliate.
Jones, 23, Colorado’s eighth selection (288th overall) in the 2003 Entry Draft, arrives for his second stint with the Avalanche this season as the Monsters’ second-leading scorer with 22 points (9g/13a) in 36 games played. He leads the Monsters in power play goals with eight. Jones leaves Lake Erie having tallied points in each of his last five games (2g/5a).
In a related move, the Avalanche placed forward Paul Stastny
on injured reserve following surgery to remove his appendix.
