Steven Stamkos was named the Hockey News NHL Player of the Week yesterday.
Stammers who tied a Lightning record with a 13 game consecutive point streak, tallied 9 points last week. He had 3 goals and 6 assists.
He is tied for 4th in the NHL with 35 goals. Stammer who just recently celebrated his 20th bday, is also 7th in the league with 71 points.
He is on pace for a 97 point, 47 goal season. My brother and I coined Stammer “40″ before the season started because we thought he would nail the 40 goal mark in his first full season, but he is on pace to blast through that prediction.
Just as a caveat, him and Marty St Louis are the only players in the top 10 in NHL scoring who aren’t on Olympic Hockey teams….hnmmmmm.
By the way, Barry Melrose, you are a moron, you didn’t think this guy was ready. Take off your stupid suit and get a new job.
