With 2 OT winners this month, Jones standing out

DENVER (AP) - For a player with such a common moniker, Colorado Avalanche forward David Jones is sure making a name for himself.

His play on the ice this season has been far from ordinary.

Jones has two overtime winners this month, becoming the first Avs player to accomplish that feat since Peter Forsberg more than a decade ago.

Yet even with Jones' recent success, he's hardly a known face. When he's out with the likes of Paul Stastny and Matt Duchene, Jones barely draws a second glance as fans fawn over his more famous teammates.

Not that he minds flying under the radar, relishing being just your average Jones.
