Player News
  • Stamkos (abdomen) is expected to be healthy and ready to go once (if) the NHL season resumes. Coach Jon Cooper told reporters, "Lot of it with him was about rest," Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. Stamkos missed the previous seven contests prior to the league hiatus due to his abdominal injury. Prior to getting hurt, the world-class forward was riding a 15-game point streak, during which he racked up 12 goals and 10 helpers. If the league restarts, whether it be the regular season or straight to the playoffs, Stamkos figures to offer high-end fantasy production in DFS contests and will continue to serve as an elite player in season-long formats heading into 2020-21.

  • Stamkos is nearly back to full health after undergoing core-muscle surgery March 2, Diana C. Nearhos of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Before the NHL suspended its season March 12, Stamkos had been viewed as a candidate to return to action at some point in the first round of the playoffs, which would have been scheduled to begin during the upcoming week. The NHL's ongoing hiatus will ultimately result in Stamkos missing just seven games, with the break providing him with enough time to fully recover from his surgery before the league allows teams to resume training for whatever remains of the season. Before requiring the procedure, Stamkos had been averaging more than a point per game for the fourth straight season, tallying 29 goals and 37 assists across his 57 appearances.

  • Stamkos will have core muscle surgery Monday and is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks. Stamkos will miss at least part of the Lightning's first-round playoff series if he, in fact, takes six weeks to return to form, but he could miss a full series or two if it hits the eight-week mark. The 30-year-old forward was red-hot before the injury with 22 points (12 goals, 10 assists) across 15 games, and he's racked up 66 total points through 57 contests this year. There's no one-for-one replacement for Stamkos, but the Lightning have enough depth to absorb his loss after picking up Blake Coleman and Barclay Goodrow at the trade deadline. For the time being, Ondrej Palat will flank Brayden Point on the first line.

  • Coach Jon Cooper is hoping that a timeline for Stamkos' (undisclosed) recovery will be established by Saturday or Sunday, Caley Chelios of the Lightning's official site reports. The good news is Stamkos' undisclosed injury isn't related to any of his previous surgeries, but it's a little disheartening to hear that the team has yet to pinpoint a timeline for his return. At this point it's safe to assume that the 30-year-old forward won't be available for Saturday's clash with Calgary, but his status for Tuesday's matchup with Boston is still up in the air.

  • Stamkos (undisclosed) won't play Thursday against the Blackhawks, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports. The Lightning have yet to release any details regarding the severity of Stamkos' issue, but he'll miss at least one contest with the undisclosed injury he picked up during Tuesday's loss to Toronto. The 30-year-old forward will hope to heal up in time for Saturday's clash with Calgary.
