Third-year Lakers left-hander Jason Jones has been a consistent contributor on six separate junior and senior A clubs in his lacrosse career to date since coming into the league with the Delta Islanders in 2004.
Jones won a Minto Cup with the Six Nations Arrows in 2007; was eighth in BCJLL scoring with 69 points back in Delta in 2009; and repeated that feat with the Coquitlam Adanacs in his rookie season in the WLA, tallying a career-high 24 goals and 62 points.
In 2015, Jones finished ninth in league scoring as a Laker with 19 goals and 57 total points.
While a sure finisher around the net, Jones also has a keen knack for scooping up loose balls in the offensive zone â€“ a statistic that is not kept in the western loop.
This season, Jones finished the regular season with 33 points in 13 games, including 19 tallies - a goal stat he has matched in his three seasons in the Green and White.
In the playoffs, Jones garnered 2.86 points per game with six goals and 14 assists in seven post-season encounters.
To date, Jones has scored 138 senior A goals and 337 total points in league and playoffs, averaging nearly 20 points and 48 points per season.
