3. Steven Stamkos, Center

It seems that Stamkos could arguably make this list after every season he has played. This year was no different and what stood out the most was his incredible effort on power play chances.

When it came to points and goals on the power play, Stamkos had 35 and 14 respectively. In fact, 42% of his season points came on power play opportunities. He was second on the team in both of those categories.

The Lightning center also had arguably some of the most, if not the most, active playoff performances on the team. In four out of the six games, he finished with at least a point in each game. The final stat line for the first round series against Toronto read two goals and two assists.

Power play excellence and a productive playoff series late in his Tampa Bay tenure allowed the Bolts’ captain to be placed on this season’s list.
