2018 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Clayton Stoner in 2018. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a four-year, $13 million deal with the Ducks in July of 2014.
Lands on injured reserve

October 3, 2017
Stoner was placed on injured reserve Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury.
Stoner had not been practicing the last few days, but the move to IR still comes as something of a surprise and the stay-at-home defenseman will miss at least the Golden Knights' first two games as a franchise. Regardless, Stoner is not considered much of a fantasy asset, having never exceeded 10 points in any of his eight NHL seasons.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Stoner suited up in just 14 games for the Ducks last year and was only selected by Vegas in the expansion draft because Anaheim dangled Shea Theodore in exchange for not taking a more impactful player. The veteran blueliner is likely to spend most of his time in the press box and brings almost no offensive ability considering his career high in points is 10. Stoner does contribute plenty of penalty minutes when he dresses (459 in 360 career games), but his lack of playing time or production in other categories outweigh that one positive.
Stoner signed a four-year deal with Anaheim in July after spending the last four seasons in Minnesota. He’s never been a big scorer, so his value lies more on the ice than in the fantasy arena.
Stoner, who was Minnesota's third-round draft choice in 2004, made 57 appearances with the Wild last season, tallying two goals, seven assists and 96 penalty minutes. Those numbers are not likely to appease the general fantasy population, but he does help the Wild physically, having laid 110 hits on the opposition in 2010-11. At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Stoner is a big rearguard but still has room to grow as a 26-year-old player learning tough a defensive position.
Stoner underwent surgery Feb. 12 last season to fix a sports hernia and wasn't able to return. He'll try to win one of the last spots on the blue line. He has some upside on offense, but won't get much ice time.
Stoner hasn't excited many Wild fans since being taken the third round of the 2004 draft, but he's shown glimpses of potential. He had 24 points nad 81 PIMs in 63 games last season in the AHL. He'll compete for a roster spot this fall, though it wouldn't be surprising to see him begin the year in Houston.
Stoner didn't make an appearance with the Wild in 2008-09. He's likely a year or two off from making an impact with the big club.
Stoner, Minnesota's 2004 third-round draft pick, is a hard-nosed defender in the Wild's defensive mode, but scored just seven points in 64 games last season. He'll likely add depth at Houston in the AHL again this season.
Stoner suffered a separated shoulder early in September so had no shot at competing for a Minnesota roster spot. He should get a decent shot next season, though.
The Wild's 2004 third-round pick is seen as a tough defender with a decent, but not great, scoring touch. He could win a job with the Wild later in 2006, but more likely 2006-07.
