Junior Jumps to NHL

Hobey Baker finalist David Jones ’08 signed a two year deal with the Colorado Avalanche. Jones was the unanimous choice for Ivy League Player of the Year with 44 points in just 33 games. Said Jones,

Obviously this wasn’t an easy decision. It was believed that it was in my best interest to move onto the next level. Because of my age I was only able to sign a one year deal next year, whereas this year it could be two which will give me a little more breathing room as far as development. Colorado is also getting their own AHL team so it opens up more spots for players. I am definitely hoping to finish my degree at some point but I honestly can’t say when that will be.
