Devastating News Strikes Star Player Following Recent Announcement

On Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena, the Vegas Golden Knights faced a 5-3 defeat against the Nashville Predators. However, the real blow came when team captain Mark Stone suffered an upper-body injury.

During the second period, Stone absorbed a heavy hit from forward Yakov Trenin, leaving him visibly shaken. Despite finishing the period, he didn't return for the third.

Coach Bruce Cassidy was uncertain about Stone's condition post-game, but GM Kelly McCrimmon later indicated to Pierre McGuire and Jimmy Murphy that Stone's absence could be prolonged.

Kelly McCrimmon says Mark Stone will be «out for awhile.»

Stone, who leads the team in scoring, has been pivotal this season, notably bouncing back from a previous career-threatening back injury. Amidst uncertainties about his return, the Golden Knights face critical decisions approaching the trade deadline and postseason preparations.
