Lightning's Steven Stamkos: Points in three straight to open 2016-17
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stamkos scored the game-tying goal with six seconds remaining in the third period Tuesday, complementing his second-period assist and leading to a 4-3 shootout win against the Panthers.

That makes four points in three games to open the season for Stamkos -- an important hot start for a guy who just signed an eight-year contract extension after posting his worst scoring rate since his rookie season. Stamkos took 52 fewer shots last year than the year before, but he's ripped 13 pucks on net through the first three games this season. That's a promising sign for the superstar center as he attempts to return to his old place among the NHL's scoring leaders.

Lightning's Steven Stamkos: No distractions this season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stamkos had one goal and 15 shots in six games for Team Canada at the recent World Cup of Hockey.

He had a blast, especially after missing the 2014 Sochi Olympics because of an injury. Stammer is poised to better his 36-goal output of 2015-16 now that there's no contract distraction hanging over his head.

Lightning's Steven Stamkos: 'Unfinished business' in Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stamkos, who agreed to an eight-year, $68 million contract extension with the Lightning on Wednesday, likely could have hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent on July 1 while commanding a higher salary with another club, but the state of Florida has no income tax which is believed to have helped the Lightning retain him at a relatively low rate, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Stamkos just finished out a five-year deal worth $7.5 million annually, so the star center is only getting a modest raise to stay put in Tampa Bay. Still, it seems that Stamkos has passed up potentially higher earnings with an even greater focus on winning his first Stanley Cup. After the Bolts were ousted by the Penguins after seven games in the conference finals this past offseason, Stamkos said, "We have some unfinished business." Stamkos dealt with a blood clot near his right collarbone that required surgery last April, though he ended up playing in Game 7 against the Pens, plus the issue didn't stop several teams from showing interest in his services.
