Not a single person in the world needs more evidence to show the type of determination Mark Stone has towards the game of hockey. Yet today, we got yet another piece that makes his performance in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup even more impressive than it already was.

I unfortunately took a whack in the 1st period and fractured my left wrist. Took a few things in between periods. I had to make sure it was dialed in to lift the trophy though. –Mark Stone on Pat McAfee Show

Yeah, you read that right. The captain of the Golden Knights, who went on to become the first player to score a hat trick in a Cup Final clinching game in more than a century, and was the first to lift the Stanley Cup, did it all with a fractured bone in his wrist.

You never know when you are going to win again. You might never win again. While you’re there, you’ve got to give it a try. –Stone on Pat McAfee Show

This is the same guy that recovered from two back surgeries inside of the span of nine months, only to return for the first game of the playoffs and not miss a single shift on the 22-game 56-day journey to the Stanley Cup.

It wasn’t important… I think that’s all athletes though. Everybody wants to win, we’ll do anything to win, and we’re no different. –Stone on Pat McAfee Show


Along with that incredible story, Stone confirmed the $250,000 donation Pat McAfee guaranteed if the Golden Knights won the Cup would go to the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation.

Cure 4 The Kids is an outpatient cancer center that serves almost 400 patients a week.

It’s a special place not only for me, but for my teammates, our spouses, and the organization. –Stone on Pat McAfee Show

Mark Stone is a captain in every sense of the word. There’s really no other way to put it.

**You can watch the whole interview with Pat McAfee here. As always with Pat, it’s stupendous.**
