The Chicago Blackhawks face off against the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight but they'll be done one key player. 

Defenseman Seth Jones has been placed in COVID protocol and won't play against his former team in Columbus tonight. 

Jones was pulled from practice after positive test results appeared. 

It also makes sense on why Jones didn't address the media today before his big return to Columbus. 

Jones has lived up to the hype so far as he's been eating up minutes and has registered 25 points in 35 games so far.
