Stamkos is one of the NHL's most electrifying goal scorers, but he'll be heading to Sochi coming off a major injury that has kept him out for most of this season. Stamkos twice has won the league's Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy as the league's top goal scorer, netting 51 in his second season in 2009-10 and a career-high 60 in 2011-12. His 222 goals through Jan. 13 since entering the league in 2008 with the Tampa Bay Lightning are second behind Alexander Ovechkin. Stamkos had 14 goals and nine assists through 17 games this season before he suffered a broken tibia Nov. 11 against Boston - a contest he entered tied for the NHL's scoring lead. Stamkos was selected for Team Canada despite the injury, and he's determined to play in Sochi after being chosen as an alternate in 2010. Though he's hoping to return to the Lightning before the Olympics, Stamkos appears on track to be recovered by the time the Games begin. He has 16 goals and 10 assists in 22 international games, representing Canada in the Under-18 championships, World Junior Championships and World Championships. He scored seven goals and had five assists in eight games at the 2013 Worlds. If Stamkos is healthy, he could be placed on Canada's top line with center Sidney Crosby, who could find himself recording plenty of assists given Stamkos' ability to find the back of the net. He hasn't scored fewer than 45 goals in an 82-game NHL season since netting 23 in his rookie campaign.
