Found December 23, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Nashville Predators rookie defenseman Seth Jones expects to be in the lineup Monday when his team faces the visiting Boston Bruins. Jones sustained a cut near his left eye when he was hit in the face by a deflected puck during the Predators’ game Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens. “I am pretty lucky,” Jones told the Tennessean. “The doctor said it was probably the best spot cut-wise for it to happen. When it happened I was feeling around it. I knew it wasn’t around [the eye], so it got a little scary that it was right on the eye.” Jones said he never lost vision, but the eye had swelled shut by the time doctors got to him in the locker room. “They forced it open and the vision was still there, so I was good,” Jones said.
