Jones was released by the Ducks on Monday, Dhiren Mahiban of the New York Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was unable to impress the Ducks' coaching staff after being signed by the team to a professional tryout agreement in September. He'll head back to the open free agent market following his release and could find some potential suitors looking for additional help on the wing.

Jones signed a professional tryout agreement with Anaheim for training camp, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones logged a total of 75 contests between Calgary and Minnesota last year in which he tallied 11 goals and seven assists along with 10 PIM. Given his minimal production, especially compared to his 30-point 2014-15 season. The Ducks seem to be set on the right side, but if he is willing to switch to the left side, it's possible Jones secures himself a permanent deal.

Jones (illness) is ready to play Friday night against the Red Wings, Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones missed the past two games due to an illness, but he'll return to the ice and reprise his role as a bottom-six forward Friday. His presence is important to the Wild, who are trying to lock down a playoff spot, but the activation likely won't cause many to blink in the fantasy realm as Jones has just 18 points in 78 games this campaign.

Jones (illness) won't suit up for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fantasy owners' shouldn't need to keep tabs on Jones' availability, as the veteran winger has only notched 18 points in 71 games this season, and shouldn't be owned in the vast majority of fantasy leagues. Jason Zucker, who has been a healthy scratch for four of the Wild's last eight games, will slot into Minnesota's lineup Tuesday against Chicago in Jones' absence.

Jones scored his 11th goal of the season, and second with the Wild, in Saturday's win over Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Jones has increased his scoring output slightly with the Wild with three points in eight games after 15 points in 59 games with Calgary. He's had 14 or more minutes of ice time the past two games, so he may gaining the confidence of the coaching staff.

Jones notched a goal -- the first with his new squad -- and just 7:20 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win against Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was on ice for 12:30 in his debut with Minnesota, so the drop-off in usage is concerning, although it is just two outings. The 31-year-old winger last found twine on Feb. 17, a span of six games without recording points. Jones' minutes may fluctuate as he gets more comfortable with the new scenery, but it doesn't look like there will be a noteworthy increase from the 12:47 of ice time he saw with Calgary this year.

Jones (personal) will debut with the Wild on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Jones missed out on Tuesday's game against the Avalanche due to some visa issues, but it appears those are now behind him. It seems unlikely he will be a member of the team's top-six forwards, as the veteran winger averaged just 12:47 of ice time with Calgary, and the Wild have similar depth in the forward ranks. Jones can safely be avoided in most fantasy formats, but he does provide a bit of a boost in leagues that count hits (115 this season).

Jones will miss Tuesday's game against the Avalanche as he deals with a Visa issue, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was dealt from the Flames to the Wild just before the trade deadline Monday, but it appears as though the Canadian won't be able to get everything sorted out in time to make his debut with his new club Tuesday. It appears to be a minor issue though, so the winger should be cleared to play for Thursday's tilt against the Maple Leafs.

Jones was acquired by the Wild from Calgary on Monday for Niklas Backstrom and a sixth-round pick in the 2016 draft.

EDGE Analysis

Jones tallied nine goals and six assists in 59 contests with Calgary this season prior to the trade. The 31-year-old winger has totaled 188 points in 446 games played with Calgary and Colorado over the course of his career. It is unclear how big of a role he will have with Minnesota at this point, but it seems likely the veteran Jones will push for playing time on one of Minnesota's forward lines.
