At 12-years-old, Connor Jones told himself that the first NHL game he'd attend was the one he - or his twin brother Kellen - would be playing in.
Fourteen years later, Jones attended his first game, making his NHL debut on Sunday night in the Islanders 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres.
Jones skated 11:33 on a line centering Stephen Gionta and Cal Clutterbuck, recording two shots and three hits. Jones had two good looks for his first NHL goal, hitting the post with an empty net in the dying seconds of the game.
Jones' parents flew out from Montrose, BC for the game and his brother Kellen came up from Bridgeport, where the twins had been playing together this season.
