It looks like Steven Stamkos
has picked up right where he left off.
The first pick in the 2008 Entry Draft had a breakout season in 2009-10, earning a share of the Rocket Richard Trophy by tying for the League lead with 51 goals.
He's lost none of his scoring touch in the new season.
Stamkos had 4 goals and 8 points in the Tampa Bay Lightning
's three games this past week. The biggest night came on Friday, when he had his second NHL hat tricks as the Lightning cruised to a 5-2 win in Atlanta.
Stamkos already has 14 points in the Bolts' first seven games. While he doesn't figure to average two points a game for the whole season, there's no doubt that he's already among the NHL's elite players.
