Hat Trick for Ryan Jones

Standard Spin: Ryan Jones scored three times - all in the third period - and the Edmonton Oilers erased a 2-1 Columbus lead to take Friday night's contest 6-3.  Jones had 6 goals coming into the night, and now has 9 goals and 14 points on the season.  Ryan Smyth had 2 helpers.  Regarding Jones' fantasy value; we don't advise racing out and adding him to your roster.  These sorts of offensive flashes occur on a regular basis around the NHL and do not represent consistent production.  Going into Friday night, Jones' goal-per-game rate was 0.25. If anything, stash him on your bench if you have space and wait and see.
