Mark Stone’s junior career ended last month, but he has picked up one last honour, receiving the Brad Hornung Trophy as the Western Hockey League’s most sportsmanlike player of the year.

Stone, who made his debut with the Ottawa Senators in Game 5 of the first round of the playoffs – picking up an assist in the 2-0 victory – received the award for a season in which he scored 41 goals and 82 assists and only 22 penalty minutes in 66 games for the Brandon Wheat Kings.

In four seasons with Brandon, Stone registered 106 goals, 190 assists and 102 penalty minutes in 232 games.

Stone, a right winger selected by the Senators in the 6th round (178th overall) of the 2010 entry draft, is expected to battle for a spot in the Senators lineup next season.
