Clayton Stoner (abdominal surgery) isn't likely to be available in the second round.
Stoner last played on Nov. 15 and he's run into problems with his recovery. "I guess it would be up to the doctors," Stoner said. "Just not 100 percent, that’s all. Just tight and sore."

Clayton Stoner is expected to join the Ducks on Saturday or Sunday.

Mar 22 - 2:02 PM

Clayton Stoner has not been happy with the way his body has progressed after undergoing abdominal surgery December 21.

Stoner was hoping to return after the All-Star break but Saturday marked the second day in a row that he has been able to practice. "It’s just taken longer than you would like," Stoner said. "At certain points, you try and get back on the ice. You feel like maybe you can start building and getting on the ice incorporated back with the team. And then you have a setback. So it’s been frustrating. At the same time trying to stay positive and look ahead. Hopefully I can get my strength back and kind of help the team out in the future." Once Stoner is 100 percent, he will be sent down to San Diego to get in some playing time. He had only three points in 14 games before the injury so his fantasy value is negligible.
