Colin Stone's season is over before it even began. The Swift Current Broncos announced yesterday the Calgary product, who hasn't played this season, will not return to the lineup until the fall at the earliest.

The 18-year-old suffered a severe concussion March 19 in Game 2 of the Broncos' first-round playoff loss to the Medicine Hat Tigers.

Swift Current GM-coach Dean Chynoweth said the decision to keep Stone on the sidelines was made after discussions with medical specialists.
