Senators General Manager Pierre Dorion said Stone won’t play “soon” and his injury should be “measured in weeks.” This is a big blow to the Senators’ late-season push for the Atlantic Division and to fantasy owners alike.
Stone (neck) is doubtful for Thursday, but could play on Sunday.
Stone missed Tuesday’s game in New Jersey with a neck injury that he suffered on a hit from Jacob Trouba on Sunday. Stone was fortunate to avoid a concussion on the play and could end up only missing two games. Monitor his status leading up to the Sunday-Monday back-to-back.
Stone left Sunday’s game after being hit in the head by Jets’ defenseman Jacob Trouba.
Stone was down on the ice for a bit before retiring to the dressing room for the night. Trouba faces a hearing for the hit, but Stone could be out of the lineup longer. The Senators also lost Mike Hoffman and Tommy Wingels last night, so they need some good news on the injury front.
Stone (upper-body) practice on Friday; could return to the lineup on Saturday.
Stone missed Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury that he suffered on Tuesday, but he was back skating on the Senators’ top-line on Friday and head coach Guy Boucher is hopeful that he will be available on Saturday. Stone has had a slow start to the season, having recorded just one goal and four assists in nine games.
Stone is out indefinitely with a concussion; could be ready for the season opener (Oct. 12).
Stone suffered a concussion during the Senators’ practice on Friday and will be held off of the ice until he is symptom free. Stone is coming off of a 23-goal, 38-assist (61 points) season and with two weeks left until the start of the regular season, he could still be ready for the season opener.
Stone will miss his third straight game with a chest injury that he suffered in Winnipeg on a colossal hit from Dustin Byfuglien. With Stone out, Buddy Robinson has been recalled from Binghamton (AHL) and will make his NHL debut.
