Number 48, Connor Jones, number 48...

(Thank you and RIP Bob Sheppard)

Jones becomes the 6th #48 in an Isles regular season game, joining this group:

Claude Lapointe for 1 game on 10/31/1996
Warren Luhning 1998-1999
Steve Regier 2006-2008
Anton Klementyev 2010
Kael Mouillierat 2015

It's been worn in 44 45 prior games; only Mouillierat had a point wearing 48(he had a goal and an assist in a game vs Arizona 2/24/15)

Mouillierat is the only player in Isles history with a career shooting percentage of 1.000!

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
