Future Watch: Max Jones Rookie Hockey Cards, Ducks – Max Jones was drafted by the Anaheim Ducks with the 24th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. With size and speed, fans have been waiting on him with bated breath.
As far back as 2014-15, he burst on the scene with the NTDP. He played with Auston Matthews, Clayton Keller, and Matthew Tkachuk, and a few more talented players to say the least. He had 10 points in 24 games with 110 PIMS.
In 2015-16, he had 52 points in 63 games, with 28 goals. He got some playoff experience that year and took home a Memorial Cup Trophy.
In 2016-17, he had 17 goals and 36 points in 33 games. In the playoffs, he had seven goals and 12 points in 14 games. Not bad. Later that season he played nine games with the San Diego Gulls while they were on a playoff run. He got two points.
In 2017-18, he battled injuries and played for two different teams and still had 19 goals in 31 games. He ended up in Kingston and he had three points in six games. He had three goals and four points in nine playoff games. Not the kind of year you want to see from him.
Last season he played in the AHL and the NHL with the Ducks. He played in 30 games in the NHL scoring two goals with five points. With San Diego, he played in 43 games and he had 14 goals and 29 points. He had four points in eight playoff games for coach Dallas Eakins who is now the coach of the Ducks this season. They lost in the third round of the playoffs.
Here’s a look at his first NHL goal:
He’s made the big club out of camp. Collect him now because he’s close to breaking out.
