Robert Jones was a pioneer goaltender in organized hockey. His career is documented beginning in 1889 with the Montreal Victorias. Though his success would not be seen until near the end of his career.
Robert was initially the starting goaltender for the Victorias though many other players would often challenge for this position in the early days of hockey.
He would once again establish dominance as the team"s starting goaltender in 1895. Jones was given the opportunity to start a game with the Montreal Victorias after a string of two losses by the Victorias in 1895 by then goaltender Hartland MacDougall.
After losing the to Winnipeg in 1896 he did not play again. Gordon Lewis would take over goaltending duties.
His greatest feat however is his career play statistics near the end of his career.
After 1894, Jones played in 13 regular season matches winning 12 games in competition. Jones only played regular goal for the Victorias.
