Jones has appeared in 78 career NHL games, including 22 this season with Tampa Bay. The 25-year-old had two goals and two assists.

"Flames general manager Jay Feaster called Jones "a good-sized centerman and someone we feel will fit in well here."

He was claimed off waivers by Calgary from Anaheim in October 2010.
