It's been widely believed for quite some time now that Seth Jones will be the first name called during the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The defenseman has been extremely impressive in his young career, scoring 56 points in 61 games for the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL during the 2012-13 season. At 18, Jones already plays an intelligent game which far exceeds his years.
Will the Colorado Avalanche select Jones with their first overall pick? No, according to a report from the Denver Post. Instead, Joe Sakic (Colorado's executive VP of hockey operations) revealed that the team is planning to draft a forward with their top selection.no comments
