So the number one pick in last year’s draft isn’t having the best year ever. Steven Stamkos is only 19 years old, but a lot more was expected out of him this season. With poor performances coming from the Lightning all year(24-33-16 and in 14th place in the East) it’s no wonder his numbers are low. Let’s see how his stats compare to Backstrom’s rookie season. Keep in mind that Backstrom also played with the best player in the NHL–Alex Ovechkin.
