The selling has begun.
Stone, 26, is a pending unrestricted free agent with a cap hit of $4 million. A right shot, he has one goal and eight assists in 45 games while averaging 20:13 of ice time.
The Coyotes will retain half of Stone’s salary. The condition is whether Stone re-signs with the Flames.
Stone will join a Flames blue line that recently added Matt Bartkowski on a two-year deal. In Saturday’s 2-1 overtime loss to Vancouver, Dennis Wideman, also a right shot, logged just 13:35 of ice time.
With the arrival of Stone, Wideman could be the odd man out.
The Flames are in Nashville to take on the Preds tomorrow.
