Blair Jones back in coach Hartley's good book | 11/23/2013 9:57 AM
NewsThe 2012-13 season had been unpleasant and disheartening for center Blair Jones.
ImpactA dozen games in, Calgary coach Bob Hartley soured on Jones - chucking him on waivers and banishing him to the farm - and that was basically it. But he was recalled on Friday and Hartley said he expects production from Blair now that he has improved his conditioning and attitude." He improved his play in the AHL, too. In 21 games last season with the Abbotsford Heat last season, Blair had seven points. In 16 games this season, 20 points. "The message I (gave) myself was, `Don't go and sulk. It's not going to do you any good. Just go and work hard,' " said Jones. "I feel confident and comfortable. I want the puck, just hanging onto it and making plays. It's fun to have your confidence build and to get some of the swagger back. It's a good feeling."

Blair Jones gets off to strong start in camp | 09/16/2013 11:02 AM
NewsBlair Jones has been making an impression with his gritty performance in training camp.
Impact"Jonesy's playing with desperation," said assistant coach Martin Gelinas. "He's not the only guy. There are lot of guys battling for jobs here and you've got to find a way to get yourself noticed. A guy like Jonesey, he's not going to score a lot. So he has to find other ways to contribute and that means being physical, being in people's faces. That's how he's going to make his mark. We'll see where this goes. We're not even one week into it. But at the same time, he's trying to do the right thing." Jones had an assist in 15 games with the Calgary Flames before being placed on waivers and being sent to the minors once he cleared. Despite his setback last season, he still has a decent shot of making the 2013-14 squad.
