Edmonton Oilers sign Jones Brothers

Matt Dewkett

The Edmonton Oilers organization has signed Connor and Kellen Jones of Quinnipiac University, according to a tweet by one of their teammates. The twin brothers just finished their four year careers at the ECAC Hockey school after being eliminated by Providence in the NCAA East Regional in Bridgeport.

Kellen Jones, a seventh round draft pick of Edmonton in the 2010 NHL Draft, had 18 goals and 24 assists in 40 games played this season. He finished his career in Hamden with 53 goals and 74 assists. A two-time alternate captain of the Bobcats, he was part of a NCAA Frozen Four squad a year ago and helped elevate Rand Pecknold's program.

Connor Jones, an undrafted free agent, had 15 goals and 23 assists this season. He finished his Quinnipiac career with 49 goals and 80 assists, besting his twin brother by two points.

Both are similar in stature, with terrific hands and quick feet. Each of the brothers could learn to play with a little more discipline, but the Jones brothers should bring some added scoring punch to Edmonton's AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City.

The twins will report to the Oklahoma City Barons on a ATO to finish out the 2013-14 season and their contract will kick in to start the 2014-15 season in September.
