CALGARY - Blair Jones is getting a new chance to impress Bob Hartley.

Jones was a favourite of head coach Brent Sutter last season, but fell out of favour with new Calgary Flames bench boss Hartley within a month of the season and was sent to the minors, even with a one-way contract.

With the rash of injuries to the forward ranks – the latest being Matt Stajan (upper body) to go with Jiri Hudler and Brian McGrattan – Jones was summoned from the AHL Abbotsford Heat in time to face the Vancouver Canucks Wednesday night at the Saddledome.
