Stamkos has surgery for broken leg
November 12, 2013
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos underwent what the team called ''successful surgery'' Tuesday in Boston to stabilize a fracture in his right tibia.
The high-scoring center is expected to return to Tampa on Thursday to begin rehabilitation. A timetable has not yet been set for his return.
Stamkos was injured on Monday with 7:11 remaining in the second period of a game at Boston. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher after crashing into the post.
Stamkos was backchecking on a play when he got tied up with Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton. The pair went into the net hard.
