Jones was loaned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

In light of the news that Claude Giroux (lower body) would miss the next two games, the Flyers opted to call up top prospect Scott Laughton, who would offer more offensive potential in a top-six role than Jones, who is best optimized as a checking line player. Jones has been a healthy scratch for all but four games this season and won't have much value once he returns to Philadelphia, likely once Giroux is deemed healthy.

Jones cleared waivers Wednesday but hasn't been reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley, Tim Panaccio of reports.

The Flyers will be able to move Jones to the AHL squad whenever they choose now that's he's cleared waivers, but it appears the team wants him to stick around a little longer as a contingency plan. Sean Couturier missed Wednesday's practice with a stomach virus, so Jones could be called upon to play Thursday against the Panthers if Couturier is not healthy enough to play by that point.

Jones (mouth) appears to have secured an Opening Night roster spot for the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Flyers will rest Jones during Tuesday's preseason game after he required stitches on his mouth a night earlier, but the team is apparently satisfied with the physicality he's shown thus far in camp. He'll see occasional duty on the team's fourth line, but could become a regular healthy scratch.

Jones required stitches on his mouth after Monday's exhibition game but will be fine moving forward, Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly reports.

Considering that the injury isn't too severe, Jones doesn't seem to be in danger of missing any time off the ice. He'll have a chance to prove his availability when the Flyers face the Rangers on Tuesday in another exhibition matchup.

The 2012-13 season had been unpleasant and disheartening for center Blair Jones.

A dozen games in, Calgary coach Bob Hartley soured on Jones - chucking him on waivers and banishing him to the farm - and that was basically it. But he was recalled on Friday and Hartley said he expects production from Blair now that he has improved his conditioning and attitude." He improved his play in the AHL, too. In 21 games last season with the Abbotsford Heat last season, Blair had seven points. In 16 games this season, 20 points. "The message I (gave) myself was, 'Don't go and sulk. It's not going to do you any good. Just go and work hard,' " said Jones. "I feel confident and comfortable. I want the puck, just hanging onto it and making plays. It's fun to have your confidence build and to get some of the swagger back. It's a good feeling."
