Born in the United Kingdom, Jones played his entire bantam and midget career at Penticton’s Okanagan Hockey Academy where he put up an impressive 83 points in a combined 88 games in his final season last year.Sam is expected to join the Capitals ahead of Wednesday night’s game against the Clippers in Nanaimo.
