Jones has accepted an offer from Norwich University (NCAA) in Vermont. Callum will be playing for both the hockey and lacrosse programs at Norwich.

Jones, who was an assistant captain, just completed his second season with the Blades. He was signed as a forward originally, however, was moved back to defence prior to the start of the 18-19 season. In his first season on the back end, Jones was a massive part of the Blades team that would make it to the National Semi-Finals.

Oakville Blades Vice President Mike Tarantino had this to say regarding Jones, “His attitude and work ethic were infectious in our dressing room. He was as tenacious as they come on the ice and I’m sure opposing forwards hate playing against him. We’re really excited to see him move on to play NCAA hockey.
