Avs Keeping a Close Eye on Jones
Dartmouth will host Princeton this weekend as they join the ECACHL conference playoffs (after having a bye last week). David Jones and the rest of the Big Green finished the regular season with wins against Cornell and Colgate on February 23rd and 24th. Typically, the Avs will have a couple of scouts at the Dartmouth games, but in the final regular season weekend, there were five representatives from the Avalanche in attendance, including Craig Billington (Director of Player Development).
One can speculate that the Avs will attempt to get the talented Jones under contract this off-season. If Jones returns for his senior year at Dartmouth, he would become a free agent in the summer of 2008.
