Jones 20 minutes away from becoming the 6th Rangers draft pick to win a national championship
Carvel is a good development coach. So are Bazin, Sandelin, Leaman and Madigan. They get the most out of players without being handed the best recruits year after year
Congratulations to ZJ on becoming a national champion!
Carvell gives zero f***s for the interviewer before and just now haha.
Is it just me or was this kind of a nondescript game for Jones? It wasn't poor but he didn't really stand out other than on the fourth goal.
I think that’s a compliment when you’re talking about a defenseman you know? Not that he didn’t stand out but he played solid, mistake free hockey and was an asset on the PP.
Eh it’s ok, he was a HUGE reason why they got there. Plus shutting out a team means the Defense gets huge props!
Seeing that graphic of the recent winners of the natty made me remember Dq didnt even win it during his time at Bu
Quinn's a bust, confirmed
Great game. Congrats to Zac and UMass on the win.
Grats Zac Jones!
so he turns pro after this season, right? Or maybe even signs AHL deal for remainder of the season?
He's staying UMass for one more year, he already announced it.
You will be hearing a lot of it starting next year.
No need for him to hurry. Let him get more man strength and the Rangers see what they have in Lundkvist and Robertson.
I don't think it'll change his decision. Staying in college for one more year is about more than winning championships. Finishing a 3rd year in college makes it a lot easier to graduate while playing pro hockey, following night classes etc.
Fox spent 3 years in college and I'm sure it gives him the same advantage, although he may have had other reasons as well to stay in school. Khodorenko said the same thing to me in my interview with him. After his injury it put things into perspective and it made him finish school before signing a contract, despite getting offers after his junior year.
There are some interesting interviews on the Player's Tribune about graduating while playing pro hockey. If a player finishes 3 years in college, they can finish the rest attending night classes for 3 years. Turning pro after your sophomore year, you'd need 5-6 years to graduate.
Another year will be good for him anyway.
He has some things he’s still working on, and there’s no real organizational need to force the issue either.
Another year also brings the added bonus of continuing to spread contracts.
I think that is a mistake. 70+ games in AHL would be a lot more productive for him.
I disagree wholeheartedly. Let him dominate next year. He’ll play all situations and be the go-to guy.
