Vegas Golden Knights captain Mark Stone will return from injury on Tuesday night against the Vancouver Canucks.

The winger has been out since suffering a back injury on Feb. 8.

Goaltender Laurent Brossoit and forwards William Carrier and Nolan Patrick are on the long-term injured reserve list, helping make room for Stone on the cap-challenged Golden Knights’ roster.

The Winnipeg-born Stone has eight goals and 20 assists in 28 games with the Golden Knights this season.

The Golden Knights entered Tuesday’s action two points back of the Dallas Stars for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
