Take a bow, Seth Jones.

Although the Blue Jackets saw their road winning streak end in Vancouver, it wasn't for a lack of effort from Jones.

The blueliner scored the game's first goal and assisted on three Blue Jackets' goals in the span of 2:37 late in the third period to send the game into overtime.

Jones' four points give him 54 on the season, good enough for the most ever for a defenseman in franchise history. James Wisniewski previously held the club mark with 51 points in the 2013-14 season.

Player Season Goals Assists Points
SETH JONES 2017-18 16 38 54
JAMES WISNIEWSKI 2013-14 7 44 51
ZACH WERENSKI 2016-17 11 36 47
JAROSLAV SPACEK 2002-03 9 36 45
SETH JONES 2016-17 12 30 42

The 54 points are a career-high for the former first-round draft pick, topping the 42 he scored for the Blue Jackets last season. And he's getting his points at the right time. Jones has 12 points, coming on six goals and six assists in his last 10 games for Columbus.

Saturday's also marked the first four-point games in Jones' career and his points (4) and assists (3) against the Canucks, tied the Blue Jackets' single game record for defensemen.

Jones will look to add to the record when the Blue Jackets host the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday night at Nationwide Arena.
