Defenseman Michael Stone is recovering well from his knee surgery earlier in the month.

Stone set career bests with 30 assists and 36 points so his injury to his ACL and MCL put a damper on the end of the season. "The situation sucks, but I’m not going to feel sorry for myself," Stone said. "This happens to a lot of people. I was lucky enough to have it happen near the end of the season. Now I have a full summer to get it fixed." Stone could miss the beginning of the 2016-17 season as recovery time is usually at least six months.

Coyotes defenseman Michael Stone will miss at least six months after undergoing surgery to repair the ACL and MCL in his left knee.

Multi-ligament knee injuries can be devastating for athletes and usually require a lengthy rehab. "They went in and fixed things up, and everything went well with the surgery," coach Tippett said. "But it's a long-term (recovery)." Stone suffered his injury when he got his left leg tangled up with Michael Raffl of the Flyers on March 26. Stone was having a career year with 36 points in 75 games played, surpassing his career high of 21 set in 2013-14.

Michael Stone (knee) is undergoing some tests, but it looks like he is done for the season.

"It's longer-term than the season has left in it," coach Dave Tippett said. "I would say he would be done for the season." It's time to let the defensman go if you are in a single-season league.

Michael Stone had a great night on Thursday, however the Coyotes fell to the Wild 4-3.

Stone scored his first goal of the season, off a nice wrister but it was too little too late in the third period. He also collected two more shots, a hit, and three blocks during his 27:14 of ice time including nearly five minutes on special teams. Oddly, only 46 seconds of which was on the kill.
