Steven Stamkos has picked up right where he left off.It looks like
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.
