The Chatham, Ont., native was slowed by an eye injury suffered during the lockout last season and played in just 27 games, recording two goals and five assists.

Jones posted this message on Twitter shortly after the deal was announced: “Excited to get to wear the Oil drop for another year. Hoping to prove the doubters wrong and help this team return to the ’glory days!“’
