Jones is coming off his most productive season, setting career highs in points (45), goals (27), assists (18) and games (77). He also set a franchise record with three overtime goals.
Before last season, the 26-year-old Jones had to deal with one big injury after another. In 2008-09, he missed a chunk of the season with a shoulder ailment. The following season he tore his ACL and sat out the final 55 games.
Healthy in 2010-11, he tied for the team lead in goals with Matt Duchene.
Jones, a ninth-round pick in 2003, has played in 167 career games, with 47 goals and 33 assists.
