The team announced Wednesday that Stamkos will return to the lineup Thursday night at home against Buffalo. He was injured on Nov. 11 at Boston.
Analysis: Stamkos has 14 goals and 23 points in 17 games this season. The injury kept the high-scoring forward from playing for Canada in the Sochi Olympics. He was replaced on the Olympic roster by Martin St. Louis, who was traded Wednesday to the New York Rangers. Stamkos was cleared after X-rays showed his leg has healed. He called it an exciting day, noting he has "a new perspective" on his career, as well as a deeper appreciation for the hard work necessary to be successful.

Analysis: Steve Yzerman, the Lightning's general manager and Team Canada's executive director, said Wednesday that doctors ruled out Stamkos because he hasn't recovered sufficiently from a broken right leg. Stamkos underwent a CT scan and met with team officials Wednesday. The center will be evaluated again in two to three weeks. Stamkos was injured Nov. 11. He had surgery to have a titanium rod inserted into the tibia.

The forward worked out for 20 minutes in a morning skate at Air Canada Centre before Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Analysis: He did not skate Monday because of soreness in his surgically repaired right leg. He practiced Saturday for the first time since breaking his right shin Nov. 11. Stamkos says his goal is to suit up for one of Tampa's final six games before the Olympic break. But he said he could still make the trip to Russia even if he doesn't play beforehand with Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Stamkos practiced with his teammates Saturday as they prepared for a game Saturday night against Colorado.

A member of Canada's Olympic team, Stamkos hopes that he will be able to play with the Lightning and then participate in the Sochi Games next month.

Analysis: Stamkos is on Canada's Olympic team and has been out since he was injured Nov. 11 at Boston and needed surgery. Cooper said Thursday that if Stamkos can play for Tampa Bay before the Olympics "naturally he's going to be ready."

Analysis: Stamkos underwent X-rays on Monday that revealed that his broken right shin, which has sidelined him since November, is improving but not enough for him to be cleared to play in games. The center will travel with the team to continue practicing, and is expected to be examined again when the Lightning return for a homestand that begins March 6 against Buffalo.

Analysis: The team's leading scorer and one of the top players in the league, Stamkos was backchecking on a play late in the second period Monday when he got tied up with Boston defenseman Dougie Hamilton. The pair went into the net hard. Stamkos immediately grabbed his right leg and was rolling on the ice in pain.

Analysis: The red-hot Stamkos has 13 points during an eight-game run and 23 overall to rank among the league's best. It's not surprising, however, that two of Stamkos' three pointless efforts this season have come against Boston, with Tampa Bay losing by a combined 8-1. The Bolts go to Beantown on Monday.
