"Thank you for everything Chicago! Such amazing memories," he wrote on Twitter. "I look forward to playing in front of my home fans wearing the Maple Leaf."
The Eastern Conference-champion Bruins didn't have a first-round selection, so Swedish defenseman Linus Arnesson (60th overall) was their first addition.
On the veteran front, there are teams speaking with forward Vincent Lacavalier, recently bought out by Tampa Bay.
"We had a good meeting (with Lecavalier)," Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli said.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said he, too, met with Lecavalier on Saturday.
Jones, who lived in Colorado as a youth and seemed a perfect fit for the Avalanche, has ties to Tennessee, as well. Popeye Jones owns a house there.
"It's a perfect spot for him," Popeye Jones said, proudly. "He'll be motivated there, and ready to go."
Sakic gave Jones some advice on getting Seth more interested in hockey when they both played in Denver more than a decade ago. Popeye Jones later developed a friendship with former Colorado goalie, and now coach, Patrick Roy.
The draft story line that had Jones joining the franchise that encouraged his push into hockey went bust on the very first pick.
"It definitely sounded too good to be true," Seth Jones said. "I'm not unhappy that they didn't choose me. It was their decision, and that's what they thought would be best for their organization.
"You've got to respect that."
