Utica Comets Director of Hockey Operations Pat Conacher announced today that the club has signed forward Kellen Jones to a professional tryout contract (PTO).

Earlier this season, Jones recorded three points (1-2-3) in 12 games for the Bakersfield Condors. The Montrose, BC native also collected 25 points (6-19-25) in 23 games for the Missouri Mavericks of the ECHL.  Last season Jones posted 15 points (5-10-15) in 49 games for the Oklahoma City Barons, as well as three points (2-1-3) in 10 Calder Cup Playoff games. One of his two playoff goals came against the Comets in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals that needed four overtime periods to decide a winner.                                                  

Jones was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the seventh round (202 overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Level Draft. His twin brother, Connor, is currently a member of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.  The two played their collegiate hockey together at Quinnipiac University (2010-14).
