Steve Stamkos scores 50 goals in second NHL Season

Macedonian Canadian Steven Stamkos joined an elite group of NHL goal scorers and his biggest fan was in the stands to see it. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2008 draft became the third-youngest player to score 50 goals in a season, and he scored the only goal in the shootout to lead Tampa Bay to a 4-3 victory over the Florida Panthers in the Lightning’s home finale Saturday night. Stamkos’ father was in attendance, adding to the excitement of the night for the forward. Though Ed Jovanovski is a great player, it is rather unlikely another Macedonian Canadian/American can achieve what Steve has done in the NHL.
