Michael Stone's roots with Calgary should make his transition to the Flames easier following Monday's trade.

Though Stone has only played for Arizona at the NHL level, he did spend four seasons with the WHL's Calgary Hitmen. His wife is also a Calgary-native. "It makes things a little bit easier for me and my family," Stone said, regarding the trade. "My wife is from Calgary and has lots of family out there. This way, she has a lot of help. We had twins in September so she’s going to need a lot of it. It’s an ideal situation if that’s the route it was going to go." Stone can become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but given his Calgary connections it wouldn't be surprising to see him re-sign with the Flames if this rental period goes well. He's projected to join T.J. Brodie on the second pairing and get some power play ice time.

Michael Stone is still trying to get to 100% following his knee surgery in April.

"I haven’t played to my capabilities," Stone said. "Obviously, you saw the kind of player I was last year and I’m not that player right now. I’m getting there I feel, and I feel like this last couple weeks have been a step in the right direction. Hopefully I can continue that." He has a goal and eight points in 38 games this season compared to his 36-point showing in 2015-16. Coyotes coach Dave Tippett feels Stone has come around in his last 10-12 games and is back to playing like his normal self.

Michael Stone has been struggling to get back up to his 2015-16 level after undergoing surgery in April.

Stone had a career-high 36 points last season, but he has no goals and six assists in 28 contests in 2016-17. He's also spent some time in the press box. "It’s getting the confidence back that you have your legs underneath you," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "I think that’s where he’s been." He's worth keeping an eye on as a potential bounce back candidate for the second half of the season.
