STEVEN STAMKOS SCORES 50TH GOAL, TIES FOR NHL LEAD



Sports.

Macedonian icehockey player Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning is the third youngest NHL player to score 50 goals in a season.

Stamkos, the Lightning's second-year forward, hit the milestone Saturday night when he scored his second goal of the game against the Florida Panthers. Stamkos netted No. 50 with a wrist shot from the point that went between the pads of goalie Scott Clemmensen. It was his second power-play goal of the night.

At 20 years, 2 months and 3 days, only Wayne Gretzky (19 years, 2 months) and Jimmy Carson had 50-goal seasons earlier than Stamkos -- the No. 1 overall pick in the 2008 draft.

The goal also tied Stamkos with Washington's Alex Ovechkin for the NHL lead. Ovechkin scored his 50th on Friday night.


MD: This is awesome! Stamkos is a truly great player. Imagine if we would have a national icehockey team and got Stamkos playing together with Ed Jovanovski and Jose Theodore :)
