Steven Stamkos is considered hockey royalty by supporters of the Tampa Bay Lightning. The walking goal factory extended his illustrious NHL career on Thursday by becoming the first player in the team’s history to score 1,000 points in his entire career.

Stamkos is now the eighth member of an incredibly elite group of NHL players, with superstars like Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals, Sidney Crosby, and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins as well.

Through the NHL Public Relations:

With an assist on Nicholas Paul‘s goal in the first period of the Lightning’s away game against the Philadelphia Flyers, Stamkos attained a historic milestone. Stamkos entered the ice for this game with 13 goals and 14 assists for a total of 27 points for the 2022–23 NHL season.
