2011-12: Kellen Jones continued to put up points for Quinnipiac University in his sophomore season. Playing on the Bobcats' top line with twin brother Connor Jones and Lightning prospect Matthew Peca, he scored 14 goals with 22 assists and was plus-five with 39 penalty minutes in 36 games. The Bobcats finished fifth in ECAC Hockey and lost to Colgate in a three-game conference quarterfinal series; finishing 20-14-6.
Jones is a quick winger but not a fast skater that can be a playmaker and possesses good vision. He can stickhandle in a phone booth, has excellent hands along with an above average shot and release. The little forward needs to improve his skating speed to get to the next level and learn to play in the dirty areas of the ice. He has a tendency to float on the perimeter and waiting for an opportunity rather than creating one.
Jones will play his junior year at Quinnipiac University and needs to bring more offense while improving his defensive game. He still has another year at the NCAA level to improve his overall game in order to get the chance for an NHL entry level contract.
