4/13/21 | The Rangers have confirmed that they have signed Jones to his entry-level contract.
David Quinn said on Tuesday, “He just got here today, he skated this morning. Obviously there is a familiarity with him from my end of it, as we talked about yesterday, this is a guy we’ve thought an awful lot of the minute we drafted him. He went on to have a great college career and we will see how it goes while he’s here. It’s day by day, see how he adapts, see how he adjusts, I know there is not a lot of practice time, so it’s going to be hard to evaluate him in a lot of ways at the pro level, but we are going to do the best we can and if we feel that he gives an indication that he can help us, he’ll play.”
Quinn also said that since Jones drove from UMass he doesn’t need to quarantine and that he was tested as well.
