After going on a tear this weekend, Miami RedHawks’ captain Ryan Jones was named Central Collegiate Hockey Association Offensive Player of the Week. Facing a surging Robert Morris University squad, the junior forward provided five goals and two assists in the series sweep. Thursday night in Oxford, Ohio, Jones scored two goals in the first four minutes of the game on his way to his second career hat-trick. Saturday night on the road in Pittsburgh, Jones provided similar heroics with a pair of goals and a game winning goal.
The native of Chatham, Ontario, is having a stellar campaign. This season, the left-winger broke Miami’s single season record for goals scored. He currently has 25 goals and 17 assists for a total of 42 points. Jones also holds Miami’s record for game-winning goals with 13, including four this season.
I had the opportunity to speak with Jones earlier this week.
