Vegas Golden Knights Forward Out Weeks

The Vegas Golden Knights will be playing shorthanded for a few weeks as forward Mark Stone finds himself on the shelve with an upper-body injury. The team announced Stone's alignment on Friday.

Stone has had a series of injury troubles in recent seasons. The Golden Knights captain has appeared in 43 games this season and has recorded 38 points. He hasn't played a full 82-game season ever in his 10 year career.

The Golden Knights currently sit with a 28-13-2 record for tops in the Pacific Division and first overall in the Western Conference. Vegas will now turn to the likes of Jack Eichel, Phil Kessel and Jonathan Marchessault to carry the load while Stone is away from the team.
