NHL Draft

Profiling Steven Stamkos

From Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune:

His hockey skills have come a long way since those early days, as the talented Stamkos sits on the verge of being selected by the Lightning with the first pick in Friday’s NHL entry draft at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa.

Yet the 18-year-old center from the Sarnia Sting remains a humble teenager who still tapes cutouts of swimsuit models and professional athletes on the inside of his bedroom closet door “because Mom doesn’t want them on the wall.” And while he has received an abundance of accolades for his on-ice accomplishments in recent months, nothing has altered his thoughts of who he is and where he comes from, no matter where he is going.

Stamkos is an almost flawless prospect. The Lightning are certainly salivating at the chance to take him next Friday night in Ottawa.
