NHL All-Rookie Team (2008)
Transferred to Winnipeg after Atlanta franchise relocated, June 21, 2011. Signed as a free agent by Salzburg (Austria), October 22, 2012. Missed majority of 2012-13 due to shoulder (February 15, 2013 vs. Pittsburgh) and back (April 9, 2013 vs. Buffalo) injuries.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
