PHOTO: Stamkos poses as an honorary Hanson brother

Steven Stamkos is more of a scorer than a fighter, but he stepped closer to the realm of the enforcer Tuesday when he posed for a picture with the Hanson brothers of "Slap Shot" fame. The trio of brothers were known in the 1977 film as a three-man lawless wrecking crew on the ice and thus became popular figures among fans of the movie. The movie jumped back into the forefront of...

PRESEASON GAMEDAY 6: Pens-Lightning Square Off in Johnstown

The French-Canadian Penguins didn’t exactly impress last night in Quebec City, tonight the Pens will send another split-squad to Johnstown, PA to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning. We typically loathe the preseason for numerous reasons. It’s too long. Hell, the regular season itself is probably too long. Outside of the opportunity to see a handful of top prospects, it’s all rather...

VIDEO: Steve Stamkos “hates drones”; kills them with hockey pucks

YouTube Tampa Bay Lightning stud Steven Stamkos showed off some silly accuracy in a new NHL promo: “‘Stamkos vs. Drones: Next Level Training”.  Stamkos began the video with an elementary feat (for him), drilling four targets in the corner of a goal before picking off flying drones with sniper-like accuracy. The government may want to give Stamkos a call when his services...

The Curious Case Of Steven Stamkos

There will be a lot of ink spilled in both print and digitally about what will happen with Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning this year, and why not should Stamkos hit the open market he would be one of the biggest players to do so in nearly a decade.  Stamkos is a dynamic player who in his 492 career games has scored 276 goals, 222 assists for 498 points while adding...

Nabokov joins Sharks as a goaltending development coach

But after re-signing with Boston this offseason, he’s excited to get the chance to prove everyone who’s doubted him wrong. “I guess it just wasn’t...

How is Steven Stamkos preparing for the 2015-16 season? Unlike Erik Karlsson, Stamkos is practicing … but probably not the sport you’d expect. Watch as Stamkos takes BP and fielding practice with the Toronto Blue Jays. Look closely and you’ll see Stamkos send one pitch over the fence, which is the topic he’s discussing with the broadcasters. Stamkos looks like a pretty...
