Mark Stone will be a game-time decision for the Vegas Golden Knights against the Vancouver Canucks Saturday, according to head coach Pete DeBoer.

Stone took part in the team's morning line rushes with Chandler Stephenson and Evgenii Dadonov.

The Golden Knights captain has been recovering from a lower-body injury which he suffered back on Oct. 14 against the Los Angeles Kings. Stone was able to avoid surgery but was placed on injured reserve.

In two games this season, the 29-year-old has two goals and an assist. Last season, Stone had 61 points in 55 games and another eight points in 19 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Defenceman Alec Martinez was not on the ice with the team during line rushes.
