Blue Jackets' Jones undergoes surgery, out 8-10 weeks”

Jones sat on February 10 against Tampa Bay Lightning, his first lost game of the season.

Selected with the fourth overall pick by Nashville in the 2013 NHL Draft, Jones has notched 45-150-195 and 114 penalty minutes in 325 games since joining the Blue Jackets during the 20015-16 campaign. Philadelphia is in the queue with 69 points in one game less and Carolina is just one step away from the Flyers with 67 points in 55 games. He finished the game with 23 minutes and 35 seconds of time on ice, including almost 10 minutes in the third period of the 2-1 loss, scoring the team's only goal in the second period.

Backup goalie Curtis McElhinney made 31 saves, Pat Maroon played in his 500th career game, and the Lightning improved to 19-2-1 in their past 22 contests. Pierre-Luc Dubois leads them averaging 0.3. Tampa Bay has scored 197 goals and ranks second in the National Hockey League averaging 3.6 goals per game.

The teams face off Monday for the first time this season. The 25-year-old had posted 30 points (six goals, 24 assists), a plus-10 rating, nine power-play points and 126 shots on goal in 56 games this season. Point's effective forecheck position sent Werenski on an another lallygagging loop behind the goal where the Lightning forward pounced with a quick stick and and set up a tic-tac-toe victor to Nikita Kucherov. Stamkos has scored nine goals over the last 10 games for Tampa Bay.
