Steven Stamkos C TB 2 Days

Stamkos is eyeing a summer contract extension with the Lightning, reports the Tampa Bay Times. He can't sign an extension until July 1.

Stammer is in line for a deal like the ones that Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews signed in Chicago. Those are eight-year, $84 million contracts and they both inked the deals a year before they could become unrestricted free agents. It looks like he'll be a fixture in Tampa for a long time and that's great news for fans and fantasy owners alike.

Stamkos scored two goals Tuesday to extend his current goal streak to three games and four goals.

Those make 25 and they inch him closer to the top of the heap of NHL snipers. He's now within one goal of Rick Nash for second in the league and may be within the same range of Tyler Seguin, depending on the outcome of the Stars' game Tuesday night. He's an automatic activation. But you knew that already.

Stamkos netted the game-winning goal Sunday in a 4-2 victory over the Senators. It was just his fifth point in his last 10 games.

His overall scoring pace may seem a bit slow right now, but he still has 21 goals. And that still puts him among the league's top five snipers. You are just going to gave to endure this quasi dry spell.

Stamkos was held off the score sheet Friday against the Penguins. He has picked up points in just one of his last six games.

He's still firing plenty of pucks ... 24, in fact. But this is the first period of time this season where he's actually scuffled. It won't last, but those of you in head-to-head formats are banging your heads against a wall right now. You can't sit him, but he's not delivering. An outburst will come very soon, though.

Stamkos scored his 20th goal of the season in Monday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs. His goal stood as the game winner. He also added an assist.

The burst was a welcome sight -- it was his first multi-point game since Dec. 4. But despite a slow December, he's still fourth in the NHL in goals and just outside the top-10 scorers overall.

Steven Stamkos C TB 1 Month

Stamkos has recorded only three goals and an assist over his last nine contests.

That level of production over that span of time certainly doesn't provide any reason for fantasy owners to sound the alarm, but it still represents the most significant dry spell of the season for Stamkos. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Bolts have gone just 3-5-1 in those contests, though a slump of some extent was probably due to occur after the team's attack torched opponents over the season's first two months. The Tampa offense still looks like one of the league's strongest units in spite of its recent downturn in productivity, and Stamkos remains the lynchpin. Stay patient with the 24-year-old, as his resume of three 90-point campaigns suggest order will restore itself eventually.
