This move is not a major surprise, coach Pete DeBoer has said that the team would have a captain for this season and speculation has always been that Stone would be the choice.

Most NHL teams have captains and they wear a "C" on their jersey/sweater.

The Knights begin the 2021 season Thursday at home against Anaheim.
