Steven Stamkos arrived in Tampa Bay on Tuesday for an informal skate with his teammates before training camp opens sometime this weekend.

After spending the lockout in his hometown of Markham, Ontario, Stamkos is ready for the season to start. "I'm excited to see all the guys and be able to skate with the guys. It's fun, these guys are a family to all of us so to be separated for this period of time has been tough," he said. "But at the end of the day we are back here now, we have to put our working boots on and be prepared to start the year.'' Questions are already rising about whether Stamkos can reach 50 goals in the shortened 48 game season. Regardless, he remains one of the top fantasy options in the league. Be sure to consider him if you land the first overall pick in your fantasy draft.
