Jones unsure about future in Denver

As it appears to be the end of the road for the Colorado Avalanche this season, many are wondering which players will be brought back next year.

According to Denver Post, right winger David Jones is unsure if he will return to the Avs next season.

The 27-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and was hoping he would be signed to a contract extension by now, though Avalanche management rarely completes those types of transaction in the regular season.

"It's unfortunate they don't do any of their signings during a season," Jones told the Post. "Which is fine, and just something you have to adjust to. But you can't really think about that too much right now. We still have games to play and have a hope we can make the playoffs."

Jones, who is just one goal away from a second straight 20-goal season, cashed in $2.5 million this year and could fetch a new deal that averages $3 million to $4 million annually on the open market due to his offensive skills.

"It's a great group of guys in here, and I've been here my whole career," Jones added. "My family's happy here, but we'll see what happens."

In 70 games with the Avs this season, Jones has collected 19 goals and 17 assists for 36 points.

Meanwhile, another Avs player is looking to return to Colorado as center Jay McClement is eligible for unrestricted free agency on July 1.

The 29-year-old has had a good season, with 10 goals and seven assists for 17 points, and strong performances on the defensive end.

McClement mentioned that he would like to return, but "it's out of my hands."
