Stamkos, Bishop fully practice with Lightning

by Staff /

Forward Steven Stamkos and goaltender Ben Bishop each was a full participant Friday in the first on-ice session of Tampa Bay Lightning training camp.

Stamkos (leg) and Bishop (wrist, elbow) each are recovered from injuries sustained last season.

“It's fun to get your competitive juices going again and going against the guys full speed," said Bishop, who had offseason surgery. "So, that was fun. It felt good out there. I didn't get tired. I felt like I was in pretty good shape, so I was happy about that."

Stamkos said, "I thought we had a great pace out there for the first day. That's always good to see."
