Nick Jones(8) Indianapolis Fuel

Nick-Jones-1

Undrafted rookie defenseman Nick Jones(8) played a couple of AHL games with Worcester Sharks after four years at Mercyhurt College came to a close.

He didn’t record any points but did come away with a +1 rating and had a fairly high 6 shots on goal.

The 6’2″ 200 lbs. blue liner mostly showed point production increases in each of his campaigns at school and healthy plus/minus marks in his final couple of seasons but was fairly well-known as unafraid to take a shot from the point (or closer).

He signed a one-year two-way minor league deal for his rookie campaign right before the start of 2014/2015.

Invited on a tryout to attend San Jose Sharks‘ training camp, he was among the first cuts sent down.

The 24-year was further reassigned to start his pro career with Indianapolis Fuel but is already making a statement.

In two ECHL games he’s struck for his first goal and added 2 assists while firing 7 shots at the net.
