Steven Stamkos Is Not Going to Sochi

Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos will not be participating in the Sochi Olympics, the team announced Wednesday. Stamkos underwent a CT Scan earlier in the day and when the results came back, he was not cleared to play. He will reevaluated in the next 2-3 weeks.

“After reviewing the CT scan this afternoon, Dr. Gutentag made it clear to me and to Steven that the tibia is not completely healed and therefore he should not be participating in game action at any time in the near future,” Steve Yzerman said in a press release. “Although the doctor was very pleased to this point with the healing process, he explained that the callus surrounding the fracture site is not 100 percent consolidated, and Steven will not be cleared to play in a game until that happens. It was a pretty clear cut decision, no gray areas at all.”
