Michael Robert Stone (born June 7, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing with the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 3rd round (69th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He is the older brother of Ottawa Senators forward Mark Stone.

Playing career[edit]

Stone played two seasons of junior ice hockey with the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL before being selected 69th overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft by the Phoenix Coyotes. He played two more seasons of ice hockey with the Hitmen before signing an entry-level contract with the Coyotes.

Stone made his NHL debut on February 18, 2012, recording 11:31 of ice-time in a 2-1 overtime win over the Dallas Stars.[1] He then scored his first NHL goal on March 10, 2012, in a 3-0 win over the San Jose Sharks. Ultimately, Stone scored 1 goal and 2 assists in 13 games during the 2011-12 season.

Stone spent the early part of the 2012–13 season with the Portland Pirates, the Coyotes' AHL affiliate, due to the 2012–13 NHL lockout, but joined the Coyotes again after the lockout ended. He scored 5 goals and 4 assists for 9 points in 40 games. After the season, the Coyotes signed Stone to a three-year, $3.45 million contract extension on July 6, 2013.[2]

After a successful 2015–16 season that saw Stone post a career-high 36 points for the Coyotes, he signed a one-year, $4 million contract extension with the Coyotes, avoiding salary arbitration on July 29, 2016.[3]

During the 2016–17 season, Stone, a pending free agent, was traded to the Calgary Flames in exchange for a 2017 third-round draft pick and a conditional fifth-round pick in 2018 on February 20, 2017.[4] Stone proved to be a dependable acquisition to the Flames blueline, scoring 6 points in 19 games.

On June 30, 2017, the eve of free agency, Stone agreed to remain with the Flames in signing a three-year, $10.5 million extension.[5]
