Brother of Harry OHA-Jr. MVP (1956)
Missed entire 1959-60 and 1961-62 seasons playing professional football in Canadian Football League w/ Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Claimed on waivers by Toronto from NY Rangers, December 4, 1960.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin on linemate Steven Samkos
