Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jim Jones
A solid positional defenceman who could also handle the puck fairly well, Jim Jones played two games with the California Golden Seals in 1971-72. He spent most of his career in the minors and also toiled briefly in the WHA.

The native of Espanola, Ontario played junior with the Kitchener Rangers and Peterborough Petes of the OHA. After finishing his junior career he was chosen 69th overall by the Boston Bruins in the Amateur Draft. His chances of playing in the NHL with the powerful Bruins were remote so he played two years with the CHL's Oklahoma City Blazers before signing with the California Golden Seals as a free agent.

After playing two NHL games with the Seals, Jones took a grand tour of North America in several minor leagues before retiring in 1976. Franchises he played for included the Salt Lake Golden Eagles of the IHL, the Shell's Winston-Salem Polar Bears, and the Philadelphia Firebirds of the NAHL.
