Max Jones's Player Profile

The Draft Analyst - February 28, 2016 - "He is quite agile, using solid footwork and a decent first step (for a power forward) to catch defenders flat footed. His anticipation skills are fairly strong, as he knows his long reach allows him to loiter near his own blue line without giving away much in positioning. If he intercepts a cross-ice pass, forget itÖitís off to the races with little to do about it. He can shift gears and change direction, making him difficult to defend in one-on-one or two-on-two situations"

Damien Cox of Sportsnet - January 13, 2016 - "Like McLeod, he could still move up. Really produced when teammates were away playing in the world juniors."

Curtis Joe of Elite Prospects - 2016 - "Max Jones is a diligent and hard-working power forward capable of being an impact player every shift. He's strong on the puck and routinely looks to create separation. He knows his game inside out and has a wide array of tools at his disposal. Strength and speed allow him to bull his way to the front of the net where he is relentless and creates havoc. Makes smart decisions with the puck and doesn't give the opposition time and space."

Future Considerations - November 2015 - "Jones is a throw-back type of power forward that plays with a nasty edge and surprisingly high skill that should have NHL teams excited. He is a fun player to watch as he is a driver of the play, whether finesse or a power game, and makes a difference. Skates well and processes the game quickly. Loves to lay the body and you can expect one large hit per game but his best asset is his rocket shot that just screams off his blade."

Submitted by Spencer Seymour - Jan . 19th - In my opinion, this guy should be ranked higher on the majority of people's list. A guy who most people have in the mid 1st round, I believe should be a top 10 pick. While not the top power forward in this Draft (that distinction belongs to Patrick Laine), if you watch this guy in London, you'll see that Jones is playing an NHL game right now. His decision-making could use some work, but that is a mental factor. In terms of the game he plays, he plays big, he uses his size and strength to create offense and has put up 20 goals already with the offensively potent Knights.
