Steven Stamkos Talks About Recovery Process


Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steven Stamkos held his first press conference since suffering a broken leg against the Boston Bruins on November 11th.  The surprise came when he entered the room without either a walking boot or crutches.

As for the injury, he didn’t know for sure but had a pretty good idea when that the leg was broken as soon as it happened. Even when laying on the stretcher he couldn’t help but think about how well things were going for the Lightning and himself…”almost too good to be true.”

In regards to a timeframe? He can’t really provide one but not having crutches and boot two weeks after and the fact that he’s already started rehab are positive signs.

He wants to come back with the team in playoff mix and hopes that will be a reality. He believes the team will and that he will be back.

He continues to think about the Olympics although its on the back burner for now.


I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
