Mark Stone didn't play in the Vegas Golden Knights preseason opener, but that doesn't mean he didn't work Sunday.

The Golden Knights forward helped distribute his bobblehead dolls to some lucky fans ahead of their game against the Arizona Coyotes at T-Mobile Arena.

All fans who attended the game received a Stone bobblehead, even though he didn't dress as one of the 23 players for the NHL's first exhibition game. But Stone, ever the man of the people, made a surprise appearance at the front gate to the delight of many unsuspecting supporters. 

Some lucky fans even got a picture with the 2019 Selke Trophy runner-up.
