Steven Stamkos picks up Player of the Week honors after leading the Bolts with five points in their four games last week. 

Stamkos began the week picking up assists on both goals in the Lightning's 3-2 shootout loss to the Golden Knights. He assisted on goals from Brayden Point and Mathieu Joseph.

After being held off the scoresheet in the Bolts' 1-0 overtime loss to the Blues on Thursday, Stamkos picked up the secondary assist on Tyler Johnson's third period goal in their 5-4 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Perhaps his best performance came on Sunday as the Lightning defeated the Panthers 5-2 in Sunrise. Stamkos scored the game's second goal, redirecting a feed from Anton Stralman to give the Bolts a 2-0 lead in the second period. He then picked up the primary assist on NIkita Kucherov's third period power play goal.
