Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos will not help his team in the Stanley Cup final. As we know, they will compete with the Dallas Stars. It was announced by the head coach of the team John Cooper, who hoped that the team will show good results even without Stamkos. People think that the team has a good chance of winning. They haven’t won the Stanley Cup since 2004, so we are all excited and looking forward to the results of this season.
As we know, hockey player had an injury recently. This made him miss Games 4 and 5. Cooper said that Stamkos did everything he could to come back. He came back, but now he should leave again. Cooper also underlined, that Stamkos could be called an outstanding player. He was missed on the ice, but nothing can be more important than one’s health, so he is going to miss some time to come back ready for everything.
Stamkos said there were plenty of behind-the-scenes issues he will certainly share with fans afterward. Understandably, it is extremely difficult for him to miss more games, but everybody is sure it is worth it.
Born Feb 7, 1990, Steven Stamkos has about eleven years of experience in hockey. Skillful and passionate about the game, he is loved by thousands of fans who are waiting for him to return now. There were two teams in his career: the Sarnia Sting (2006-2008) and the Tampa Bay Lightning (2008-2020). Stamkos took part in the World Junior U-20 Championships tournament. He also has two Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy awards (2009, 2011).
It’s a pity that Steven Stamkos has to leave his team for some time. Nobody knows how it will affect the performance of the Tampa Bay Lightning, but let’s hope everything will be just fine and all the players will master their skills.
