Seth Jones is eager to step up as a leader and get back to work with his teammates as the upcoming season approaches. With training camp just around the corner, BlueJackets.com got to catch up with him to see how his summer is going.

BlueJackets.com: What have you been up to this summer?

Jones: I've been in Dallas hanging out with my mom and my younger brother. For the most part, I've been working out and skating, kind of getting back into the groove right now, but it's been a great summer. I've golfed a little bit with my brother, so we try to do that in our free time.

BlueJackets.com: What are your summer workouts like?

Jones: They are high intensity. I'm actually doing the workouts that Nelson, our new trainer is doing. I feel really good, a lot of strength training, so I'm really happy.

BlueJackets.com: Are there any other guys on that team that you workout with?

Jones: No there's not, but I work out with my little brother.

BlueJackets.com: Is there anything in particular that you have been working on this summer?

Jones: Obviously, I want to be an overall better player. I think it's tough in the summer to work on things as you would in a game situation but just a harder shot, my one-timer, I have been working on the quite a bit. I always work on my skating so I do power skating every summer. That's something that is really important to me and is a key part of my game right now. Off the ice, I just need to develop as a person and try to take on more of a leadership role this year. We are a pretty young team, on defense too, so I'll try to take a step forward there.
