NHL Awards Chat: Steven Stamkos
The NHL Awards ceremony is taking place on Wednesday in Las Vegas (CBC, CBCSports.ca, 7 p.m. ET), and once again Steven Stamkos is in the mix.
At just 21 years old, the Tampa Bay Lightning forward is among the three finalists for the Ted Lindsay Award. The award goes to the league's most outstanding player, as voted on by members of the NHL Players Association.
Stamkos earned the honour by leading all Eastern Conference players with 45 goals, to go along with 46 assists. He finished second in the NHL with 17 power-play goals, and second in shooting accuracy among players with over 200 shots.
The former No. 1 overall draft pick was named to his first NHL All-Star Game this season and got his first taste of playoff action this spring, with the Lightning ending up on the brink of the Stanley Cup Final.
Last season, Stamkos shared the Rocket Richard Trophy with Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby when both finished with 51 goals to lead the 2009-2010 goal-scoring race.
You can ask the young superstar a question as he takes part in a 30-minute chat with CBCSports.ca at Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, just a few hours before the NHL awards are handed out.
