ST. LOUIS, MO - Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman Seth Jones has been picking up the tab for his younger brother Caleb for years.

The 25-year-old now hopes a new two-year extension for his brother with the Oilers will buck that trend.

After Caleb put pen to paper on a new extension with the Oilers earlier this month, Seth took to Twitter in hopes of getting a bit more financial contribution moving forward.

When asked during NHL All-Star Media Day at the Stifel Theatre in St. Louis on Thursday if he's seen any results yet from his call-out, he claimed you might have to go to Mexico to find out.

"I don't know, it depends on who you ask," Seth laughed. "He's in Cabo right now for the bye week, so hopefully for somebody else he opens it up a bit."

The Jones brothers shared an upbringing and have trained together every off-season, much the same in how they've shared their NHL journeys since Caleb cracked the ranks of the NHL with a 17-game call-up that produced a goal and five assists last season.

"We work out in the summer every year together, on and off the ice. It's been awesome trying to push him to become better," Seth said.

"He's getting his opportunities in Edmonton, he's playing and staying up, and I was ecstatic to see he signed a two-year deal there. Any time the organization can show confidence in him, that's obviously a big deal for him. Hopefully he'll continue to grow."

Just as he has before, Seth's looking forward to helping Caleb earn every penny on the ice while squeezing every dollar out of him off it.

"I'll be right there with him this summer pushing him to become better and get bigger, faster, and stronger."
