Golden Knights captain Mark Stone discloses shocking injury




The Vegas Golden Knights continue to be in the midst of their Stanley Cup celebration after putting the finishing touches on their first ever title earlier this year, a dominating four games to one win over the Florida Panthers. They've captured their first championship despite only having been in the NHL for the last six years, and it was already their 2nd trip to the Final after their incredible inaugural season of 2017-18 saw them come within three wins of accomplishing the feat. 

For captain Mark Stone, he wasn't fully healthy during the regular season, having undergone back surgery in late January. And he raised more than a few eyebrows when it was announced that he'd be back for the start of the playoffs. Not only did he perform well, but he would make his own case for the Conn Smythe Trophy with 11 goals and 24 points in the 22 games he skated in. 

But it was recently disclosed by Stone that he suffered another stunning injury in the Cup clinching game at T-Mobile Arena - a fractured wrist. This makes it all the more surprising, considering the fact that not only did he raise the Stanley Cup later that evening, but also scored a hat trick during the game! 

Hockey players truly are made of something else!
