The Lethbridge Hurricanes added size and skill to their roster with the acquisition of Zane Jones from the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a 4th round Bantam pick in 2015.
The 20 year old from Olds began his
WHL career with the Victoria Royals then played for the Calgary Hitmen before
being traded to Everett just prior to the WHL’s trade deadline last season.
At 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, Lethbridge Hurricanes General
Manager, Brad Robson not only likes size, but his ability to score. “He’s an
experienced WHL players that will add size to our left wing and he’ll complement
our skilled guys. He’s a big, strong, power forward who also has playoff
experience, and we expect him to be a 50 point guy with our team.”
Jones put up career best totals in goals, assists and points
with Calgary in 2012-2013 when he registered 44 points (21G, 23A) in 69 games.
In 192 career WHL games, Jones has 48 goals and 56 assists for 104 points to go
along with a plus-11 plus/minus rating and 183 penalty minutes.
