TAMPA BAY – Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos was diagnosed with a broken tibia in his right leg today in Boston, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced. 

“At this point Steven will be out indefinitely,” Yzerman said.  “The medical staff in Boston, in consultation with our team physicians, has made the decision to surgically repair the injury. The procedure is expected to take place tomorrow morning. The biggest concern for me, and the rest of the Lightning, is that decisions are made in Steven’s best long-term interest, and we feel this is the appropriate course of action.”

Broke my tibia officiating a Bantam AA game years ago. Caught in the middle of a Malachi Crunch at the blue line. I went one way, my leg went the other. One of the most painful experiences I’ve ever had.

That’s a rough one…takes quite a while to recover. Too bad, he was really lighting it up.
