CALGARY, AB. – The Western Hockey League announced today that forward Mark Stone, of the Brandon Wheat Kings, has been named the HUSKY WHL Player of the Month for March.

A 19 year-old year from Winnipeg, MB, Stone collecting 18 points in his last eight regular season games in the month of March, finding the net twice and accumulating 16 assists to go along with a +4 rating.  He led all WHL scorers and collected points in all eight games played which included six multi-point games.  During Stone’s eight game point streak through March his efforts earned him a Three Star selection on three occasions.

Stone’s 18 points through March helped him finish 2nd among all WHL scorers during the 2011-12 regular season with 123 points (41 goals, 82 assists) in 66 games played.  His consistent play helped the Wheat Kings to a 5-2-0-1 record through March to finish 6th in the WHL Eastern Conference with a 39-28-1-4 record for 83 points.  The Wheat Kings have since gone on to upset the third ranked Calgary Hitmen in the Husky WHL Eastern Conference Quarter Final 4-1 and will now face the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Conference Semi-Final starting Friday.

Stone is playing his fourth full season with the Wheat Kings who selected the Manitoba product in the 5th round of the 2007 WHL Draft.  The recently named 2011-12 WHL Eastern Conference First Team All-Star and finalist for the Brad Hornung Trophy as the WHL’s Most Sportsmanlike Player of the Year, Stone signed an NHL entry-level contract earlier this season with the Ottawa Senators who selected him in the 6th round of the 2010 NHL Draft.
