07:20 AM ET 07.30 | For starters, a virtual Seth Jones will make the NHL in 2014 -- courtesy EA Sports -- but the real Seth Jones' future remains less settled. The video game comes out in September before Jones, taken fourth overall in this year's NHL draft, secures employment with the Nashville Predators. Jones, an avid video game player, approached the company about the chance to get his likeness on screen. "It's cool to see what goes on behind the scenes," said Jones after the brief photo shoot. ... While NHL '14 is coming on screen in the fall, Jones will try to show Nashville coach Barry Trotz that he has the right balance of speed, skill and aggression on the ice. Jones is attempting to join a Predators organization known for developing top-flight defencemen like Shea Weber and Ryan Suter.
