The Vegas Golden Knights had back surgery which was confirmed on Thursday, and is expected to make a full recovery and be ready to play next season.
The Knights confirmed Stone had a lumbar discectomy which is surgery done to fix a disc in the lower part of the back at Cedar Sinai Marina Del Rey Hospital in Los Angeles. In his latest media availability, Kelly McCrimmon said it was likely he would have the surgery, but it wasn’t 100%.
Stone, who is 30 years old, missed time from February 9th to April 12th due to a back injury. He finished the season with 30 points in 37 games but only had two points in nine games after his return from injury. The Golden Knights finished the season with 94 points and missed the playoffs for the first time.
The team responded by firing Pete Deboer on Monday.
