Elliotte Friedman corrects the record: Mark Stone’s career is not at risk
Sometimes, a simple misinterpretation can take on monumental proportions, especially in the polarized world of sports.

Well, that’s exactly what happened yesterday, as we learned via the highly regarded tipster, Elliotte Friedman, that Mark Stone’s career was potentially in jeopardy due to his various injuries.

It was really big news regarding the career of the Vegas Golden Knights captain, who is only 31 years old.

The news was that he might never be able to play again on a regular basis due to his numerous injuries.

Well, finally, last night, in the comments of the PuckEmpire field hockey news account’s Instagram post , Elliotte Friedman set the record straight on Mark Stone’s situation.

Basically, Friedman is saying that what he said about Mark Stone on his 32 Thoughts podcast represents what an NHL team was told about Mark Stone.

So, the story that Stone’s career is in jeopardy and that he won’t be able to play regularly represents what was circulating in the NHL before the playoffs, while the Knights’ captain wasn’t playing and was on the LTIR.

The point Friedman was trying to make was that Stone’s injuries were real and career-threatening at the time.

So, according to Friedman, we weren’t in a Nikita Kucherov situation, with a rather shady salary cap and LTIR management.

In short, Friedman was keen to correct the record, seeing that his words had been misinterpreted.

In the end, Stone’s career would not be in jeopardy, and according to Friedman, the Golden Knights are confident that Stone’s latest operation will allow him to be 100% healthy for the future.

So yesterday’s bad news is finally good news today.

So much the better for Stone, who at the age of 31, certainly still has some great field hockey left in him.
