Raised in Wisconsin, C.G. Jones started playing the game of hockey at the age of five. Though hockey has played a major role in his life, he has devoted his professional career to writing about the things he loves, such as sports and culture. His favorite hockey teams are the Montreal Canadiens, Minnesota Wild, and the San Jose Sharks—the latter of which he covers for The Hockey Writers. He has also published poetry, short stories, and a forthcoming novel is coming out in July of 2021.
