07:29 AM ET 09.03 | Mark Stone may not be expected to fill the captain's skates, but the timing has something to do with rising expectations. [Stone] got a nice present on July 5 when Daniel Alfredsson left for the Detroit Red Wings and Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray traded Jakob Silfverberg and Stefan Noesen to the Anaheim Ducks for Bobby Ryan. With three right wings leaving and only one coming in, Stone moved up on the depth chart. That was a good piece of luck he needed. He didn't have a whole lot of it last season. In part because of injuries, in particular a broken finger, he was slow to establish himself in Binghamton, while other players, such as Silfverberg and, eventually, Mika Zibanejad, started flourishing. ... [Said Stone:] "I know I'm knocking on the door."

Not expected to fill the captain's skates?? That's good as he hasn't scored an NHL goal yet. He did however score 40 goals for the 'wheat-thins'
