Stamkos Close To 50 Again

from John Kreiser of NHL.com,

He didn’t do it on Thursday. But sometime soon—perhaps as soon as Saturday night against Carolina—Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos is poised to join an exclusive club.

Stamkos is two goals away from becoming the NHL’s first 50-goal scorer this season. When he does, he’ll join an elite group of six players who’ve had multiple 50-goal seasons before their 23rd birthday (he turned 22 on Feb. 7). Wayne Gretzky did it four times; Mike Bossy, Mario Lemieux, Joe Nieuwendyk and Alex Ovechkin each had two seasons with at least 50 goals before turning 23—though Bossy, Nieuwendyk and Ovechkin had the disadvantage of not playing in the NHL until after their 20th birthdays.

continued and more NHL topics too…
