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. Jan 10 - 4:12 AM

Michael Stone is expected to draw back into the lineup Monday night.

He was scratched against Nashville on Saturday, but an injury to Connor Murphy has opened up a spot. "His game can continue to improve," coach Dave Tippett said of Stone. "Like we talked about, he's come back from a long layoff (from knee surgery). He needs to get up and going. A little more consistency in his game would be what we're looking for there."

Michael Stone will be scratched against the Predators on Saturday.

Stone, who has just 23 career goals in 296 games, has none this season in 17 games with six helpers. He does have 32 hits and 38 blocks this season, which won't leave you in a total lurch.

According to Jim Matheson, the Arizona Coyotes have made it known that pending-UFA Michael Stone can be had in a trade.

The 26-year-old defender has posted three helpers in seven games with 13 blocks and 15 hits. Stone is coming off a career year last year when he posted 36 points in 75 games, and has proven he can handle heavy workloads with three consecutive seasons of averaging over 20 minutes per night.

Michael Stone (upper body) returned to the Arizona lineup Saturday after missing six games.

Stone was reunited with Oliver Ekman-Larsson and you can't do much better than that. He has three helpers in only five games this season and saw a tick short of 21 minutes of ice time against the Bruins. He should be in your lineup in deeper pools.

The Arizona Coyotes will get Michael Stone back for Saturday night's match with Boston.

Stone has posted three points with six blocks and hits through four games thus far. So get the 26-year-old back on your blue line.

Michael Stone (upper body) may be available to play Saturday.

He has missed the six games with an upper-body injury, but coach Dave Tippett views him as an option to face the Boston Bruins.

Michael Stone (upper body) is doubtful for Thursday's game against Winnipeg.

"He’s put in some good practice time here," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "You don’t want to put him in a bad position to reinjure anything. We’ll just see where it goes the next couple days, but it’d certainly be good to get him back." Based on that, it sounds plausible that Stone might return on Saturday. He has three assists in four games this season.

Michael Stone (upper body) skated on Monday, but he was wearing a non-contact jersey.

Coyotes coach Dave Tippett did say that Stone took some "initial contact," so perhaps Stone's not far off from moving to full contact. Either way, he's expected to miss Tuesday's game. He was also recently put on the injured reserve, but he's already been sidelined for long enough that he can be activated whenever he's healthy.

Michael Stone (upper body) has been moved to injured reserve.

He was hoping to return on Tuesday, but Anthony DeAngelo's recall from the minors may have pushed that back a bit. If Stone is ready to play then he could still be activated to face Colorado.

Michael Stone (upper body) might play on Tuesday.

Stone has missed Arizona's last four contests. He did participate in Sunday's practice, but was wearing a non-contact jersey.
Mon, Nov 7, 2016 08:46:00 AM

Michael Stone (UBI) didn't travel with the team to Anaheim, and so will not play in tonight' game.

Through four games so far this season the 26-year-old has posted three helpers with six hits and blocks. That's a solid start. The Coyotes' next game will be in Colorado on Tuesday, though it's unclear if he'll make the trip. We'd hedge against it.

Michael Stone (upper body) probably won't play Friday, according to coach Dave Tippett.

He has already been ruled out for Thursday's match versus Nashville. Stone has already missed two games due to an upper-body injury going into Thursday's tilt.
