by Staff Writer / Tampa Bay Lightning

Lightning forward Steven Stamkos is in the lineup for tonight’s Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

A blood clot was discovered following a game on March 31 near his right collarbone and the Lightning’s captain hasn’t played in a game since.

Stamkos underwent surgery on April 4 to treat a type of Vascular Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (called Effort Thrombosis).

He returns to the lineup after missing all 16 playoff games in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
