It’s obviously tough to see Steven Stamkos go down, not only for our team, he’s one of the best players in the world”
-Jon Cooper, Head Coach of Tampa Bay Lightning. Steve Stamkos tangled with Dougie Hamilton of the Boston Bruins and slid into the net hard. He broke his right tibia in the freak injury when his leg smashed into the post. Stamkos is out indefinitely
Steve Stamkos was looking forward to top the NHL scoring leaders as well as lead Team Canada in the Sochi Olympics. Hopefully, he’ll take the time to physically and emotionally heal. I’m not too sure Stamkos has suffered an injury of this magnitude so it will be a huge test in his career.
Best of luck and speedy recovery.
