So which member of the Falcons #1 line do you think we picked?
C Blair Jones , Springfield (AHL)
It's been a tough season thus far in Springfield with the Falcons checking in with a 3-5-0 record through eight games. There have been some bright spots however, and perhaps none have shined more brilliantly than rookie center Blair Jones. The 20 year old out of Moose Jaw in the WHL was electric this weekend as the Falcons top line abused Lowell for 5 goals in a 6-4 comeback win on Friday night. Jones posted 2 goals, his first two as a professional, and added 2 assists as well and was named third star of the game. The following day in Lowell in the rematch of the home and home series, Jones struck for his third goal of the season. Just a 4th round pick in the 2005 draft, Jones is currently tied with teammate Eric Healey and two others for 13th in the AHL in scoring and his 11 points ranks him third in the AHL in rookie scoring. Can you say "steal"?
