Michael Stone sustained an upper-body injury in the first period of Tuesday's game.

Stone wasn't able to complete the contest as a result. Brandon Gormley was sent to the AHL on a conditioning assignment on Tuesday, so Connor Murphy will probably be inserted into the lineup if Stone can't play on Saturday.

Michael Stone picked up his first assist of the season on Saturday.

The defenseman has seven goals already this season so it was a huge anomaly that he had yet to pick up an assist. He has been an offensive surprise this season and is worth keeping in the lineup if he continues to score.

Michael Stone scored a goal in Phoenix's 4-3 overtime loss to Colorado Thursday night.

Needing a lift in the second period, the Coyotes got one from red-hot Stone. He took a cross-ice pass from Kyle Chipchura, stepped into a big shot one step inside the red line, whistled the puck through the legs of Andre Benoit and beat Semyon Varlamov to the stick side at 17:10. Stone's goal was his fourth in the past three games and seventh of the season, tying him with Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators for the most among NHL defensemen. Surprising is that Stone has no assists this season, just seven goals. He shooting percentage is stunning 24,1. Martin Hanzal and Antoine Vermette also scored for the Coyotes.

Quietly, Michael Stone of the Phoenix Coyotes is emerging as one of the top goal-scoring defensemen in the NHL.

Among NHL defensemen, Stone now ranks tied for second with six goals. Only Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson has scored more (seven). "It’s mostly a confidence thing," Stone said when asked to explain his scoring tear this season. "I’ve been able to be an offensive player mostly at every level I’ve played at, so I think it’s just continuing to build that."

Michael Stone scored his sixth goal of the season and third in his last two games on Saturday.

The defenseman has yet to get an assist this season but has been a pleasant surprise for his fantasy owners. His goal was on the power play and was his second power play goal in 15 games this season. With four goals in his last five games as well, he is going to be tough to ignore on the waiver wire.

Michael Stone netted his first goal of the season on Thursday.

Stone was playing in just his second game of the season. He had five goals and nine points in 40 contests in 2013. He's worth keeping an eye on because he does have some offensive upside despite those numbers, but we can't recommend owning him in standard leagues at this time.

The Phoenix Coyotes expect Michael Stone to continue to grow this season.

"He plays all situations," coach Dave Tippett said. "He's played some power play for us. He's a shot-blocker on the penalty kill. He's a player I really feel will take a step forward this year. We're looking for big things from him. He reminds me of a younger Adrian Aucoin. The way he plays the game, a right-handed shot, smart player who plays well positionally -- just a solid all-around player." In 40 games last season, Stone generated nine points, 89 hits, 64 blocks and a plus-2 rating.
