Kellen and Connor Jones off to Oklahoma City

No surprise here. Kellen was an Edmonton draft pick, essentially getting the rights to Connor in one swoop. The twins signed an amateur tryout contract with Oklahoma City of the AHL, and should see action as the Barons push for the final playoff spot in the Western Division. Oklahoma City is quickly becoming New Haven West. The Joneses join Yale grads Andrew Miller and Mark Arcobello on the Barons' roster. Oklahoma City is short-handed, due in part to a shoulder injury that may sideline Arcobello until the playoffs, according to reports in the Edmonton Journal. Kellen and Connor will have standard AHL contracts next season.

I've written enough about these two to fill a book over the last four years, but here and here and here are the ones which best summarize exactly what kind of quality kids from quality families they are.
