Default Steven Stamkos Injury

This is probably going to be long term, so it's worth a thread.

Steven Stamkos injured his right leg in a collision with the Lightning net, after losing his footing in a battle for position with Dougie Hamilton.

If Stamkos isn't one of the hardest-working backcheckers in the NHL, that never happens. He got hurt because he plays the game the right way -- very unfortunate.

As of this writing, he's been taken to the hospital for X-rays, and was reportedly telling those attending to him on the ice that something was broken.

Freak injury. Thought it was tib/fib but after Tim pointed out how his right ankle went in a direction it's not supposed to in a slow-mo replay, I bet it's his ankle. Hopefully we'll find out soon and it's not really really bad.

Whats scary is that could still be broken leg. *GRAPHIC* I played tennis with a guy who we thought broke his ankle. Basically his foot was pointed backwards. Screamed the same as Stamkos. Turns out he tore ankle tendons, but really happened (again, graphic if you don't want to read), is as the tendons tore, the ball in his ankle rotated and went up his leg, breaking both bones in the leg, not actually breaking the ankle. His end result was screws, plates, no activity for a year +, and not being able to pick up a racquet and do planting for nearly 2 years. I REALLY hope Stamkos did not do something similar.

Aaron Ward of TSN is reporting it's a broken tibia.

This is going to be months, not weeks.

Pray that its bone and not muscle that got damaged. The fact that it was blunt damage and not sharp damage makes me hopeful. Any doctors in the house?

I went to a couple of medical sites to do some research and it looks like he may have to stay off the leg for 3 months before he can put any weight on the leg. They may put plates and screws in so that it will heal better, but will have to wait and see. Either way it could be 6 months before he can skate and workout.

Typically 4-6 months if it requires surgery. Depends on where the break happened, if it broke in multiple spots, etc. near worse case scenario for a break

I haven't been this concerned since the freak hockey skate fall to Dan Boyle's wrist incident. A bad day in Lightning history to be sure.

Unfortunately this is a good view of Stammer. The left foot/ankle glances on the net but otherwise based on this view should be fine. However, the right tibia (shin) slams directly into the bar. You can even see the impact on the entire shin area before the net gives way. I won't lie, this is hard to watch.

Get well soon Stammer
