The Nashville Predators are a long shot for a NHL playoff spot, but with 72 points they are not completely out of it. There is however one player that may not he able to help them. Last night Seth Jones left the game with what has been reported as concussion like symptoms.
“We’re not going to put him at any risk. He’s a 19-year-old kid playing in a man’s game here.” “You’re going to take some hits in this league, he’s just starting out. He’s fine, he’s young. ESPN
Jones was hit with 7:23 in the first period. He unable to return to the game. The official report last night was the Jones had an UBI, and would not return But, his father former NBA player Popeye Jones leaked that his son was displaying s concussion like symptoms. You’ve got to love it when a parent is the leak. I guess no one told him the a UBI is a secrete.
Apparently Popeye Jones said Seth has a “concussion-like syndrome” in an interview on the Fox broadcast

Jones was drafted 4th over all in 2013 and has 24 points this season. If the Predators change the UBI to a concussion Jones could find him self on the IR. As it stand now, the Predators seem to be playing this close to the vest. There is no information available on their website. Jones will be reevaluated at some point today. Once we know more we will update this post.
