Today the Anaheim Ducks have assigned left wing Max Jones to San Diego, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). The San Diego Gulls have signed forward Max Jones to an Amateur Try-Out(ATO). Jones plays left-wing and is listed at about 6’3″ and 200 lbs.

Max Jones, 19 (2/17/98), was selected by Anaheim in the first round (24th overall) of the 2016 NHL Draft. Jones has spent his last two seasons with OHL London Knights.
