Mark Stone Vegas Golden Knights captain

Vegas Golden Knights forward Mark Stone was injured during the second period of last night’s game against the San Jose Sharks. The Golden Knights TV broadcast showed him heading down the tunnel under his own power and without appearing to be in any major discomfort.

Nevertheless, Stone did not return to the game in the third period.

After the contest Vegas Golden Knights head coach Pete DeBoer said he was held out for precautionary reasons and that the level of concern over the injury is “small right now”.

Stone skated 9:39 in last night’s game and recorded a goal on his only shot to start the scoring for Vegas. This season he leads the team in assists (21) and points (27).

We will update the situation on Mark Stone when more information becomes available.
