Flyers Loan Jones To AHL Squad

News: Blair Jones was loaned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.
Analysis: In light of the news that Claude Giroux (lower body) would miss the next two games, the Flyers opted to call up top prospect Scott Laughton, who would offer more offensive potential in a top-six role than Blair Jones, who is best optimized as a checking line player. Jones has been a healthy scratch for all but four games this season and won't have much value once he returns to Philadelphia, likely once Giroux is deemed healthy.

Flyers' Jones Clears Waivers, Not Reassigned

News: Blair Jones cleared waivers Wednesday but hasn't been reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley, Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com reports.
Analysis: The Flyers will be able to move Blair Jones to the AHL squad whenever they choose now that's he's cleared waivers, but it appears the team wants him to stick around a little longer as a contingency plan. Sean Couturier missed Wednesday's practice with a stomach virus, so Jones could be called upon to play Thursday against the Panthers if Couturier is not healthy enough to play by that point.

Flyers' Jones Appears To Have Secured Spot

News: Blair Jones (mouth) appears to have secured an Opening Night roster spot for the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: The Flyers will rest Blair Jones during Tuesday's preseason game after he required stitches on his mouth a night earlier, but the team is apparently satisfied with the physicality he's shown thus far in camp. He'll see occasional duty on the team's fourth line, but could become a regular healthy scratch.

News: Blair Jones (knee) was back on the ice skating Thursday morning, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Blair Jones will not play Thursday and could still miss a several games beyond that, but his return to the ice is a sign that he's making some progress from his meniscus tear. The Flames likely won't have a clearer timetable for his return until he resumes practicing with the team.

News: Blair Jones scored on a penalty kill Saturday in the Flames' 2-1 win at Los Angeles. It's the first shorthanded goal of his NHL career.
Analysis: He isn't likely to be at the top of many fantasy charts, as his points will be few and far between, but a shortie is rare enough to be noteworthy.

Flames' Jones Scores First Goal Friday

News: Blair Jones scored his first goal of the season Friday against the Panthers.
Analysis: Blair Jones was just recalled from AHL Abbotsford on Thursday as the Flames needed to fill a roster spot after the trade of Tim Jackman. He's been back and forth before, so perhaps he's here to stay now.

Blair Jones

Flames Recall Jones

News: The Flames recalled Blair Jones on from AHL Abbotsford on Thursday.
Analysis: Blair Jones will fill the roster spot left open when the Flames traded Tim Jackman to the Ducks on Thursday. Jones currently leads AHL Abbotsford in scoring with eight goals and 12 assists in 16 games, and will likely slide into the fourth-line role vacated by Jackman.

Blair Jones

Flames Recall Jones

News: The Flames recalled Blair Jones from AHL Abbotsford on Tuesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Analysis: Blair Jones, who appeared in 11 games with the Flames earlier this season, totaled six points (3G, 3A) in 18 games with Abbotsford. He picked up just one point in his stint with the Flames earlier this season, so it's unlikely he will make much of a fantasy impact this time around.

Flames' Jones Clears Waivers

News: Blair Jones has cleared waivers and remains with the Flames, according to the Calgary Herald.

Flames' Jones Placed On Waivers

News: Blair Jones was placed on waivers, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Blair Jones is a defensive-minded center, and with only 15 points in 110 career games he has little fantasy value.

Flames' Jones Slated For Fourth Line

News: Blair Jones practiced as the fourth line center Sunday as training camp opened, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Blair Jones missed some time with an ankle injury last season but generally impressed coaches. He won't do much fantasy damage but should be a valuable part of Calgary's squad this season.

Jones Re-Inks With Calgary

News: Blair Jones re-upped with Calgary on Friday, signing a two-year deal worth $650,000 a year, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Blair Jones was acquired from Tampa Bay in 2011-12, and gave the Flames some depth at the center position when they needed it. He has shown some scoring potential in the AHL, but has only 14 points in 99 career NHL games. He may get more of a consistent shot in 2012-13, however, to play his first full season, and may produce a bit more.

Flames' Jones Nearly Healthy

News: Blair Jones (ankle) is nearly 100 percent and should return Thursday, the Calgary Sun reports.
