Stone missed the Golden Knights' last five games prior to the league suspending play.

He'll resume his duties on Vegas' top line and first power-play unit if and when the NHL resumes its season.
According to coach Pete DeBoer, Stone (lower body) is still considered week-to-week, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
DeBoer still believes Stone will be back in time to play a few regular-season games, but his return certainly doesn't sound imminent. Unfortunately for his owners, it doesn't sound like Stone will be back in time to contribute during the fantasy playoffs.

Stone was a scratch for Friday's game against Buffalo, and this news suggests he could miss a significant portion of time.

The 27-year-old will be a huge loss for the Golden Knights, especially considering he's racked up 21 goals and 63 points through 65 games this season. As long as Stone is sidelined, look for Reilly Smith to jump up to the top line.
