According to CBC on Thursday, Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning will replace Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Canada's Olympic men's hockey team.

Stamkos was not medically cleared to play for Team Canada by the Lightning team doctors on Wednesday after breaking his leg against the Boston Bruins on Remembrance Day.

St. Louis has 25 goals and 29 assists for 54 points this season. The former Calgary Flame from Laval, Quebec won the Art Ross Trophy last season as the National Hockey League regular season point leader. The veteran right winger notched 60 points in 48 games.

Amazingly, Martin St. Louis could now find his way on Canada's number one line where he would be playing on right wing alongside Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

At 38 years of age, St. Louis might have lost a step over the years, but will bring a wealth of experience not only to the Canadian forwards, but to the team overall.

Canada will play its first Olympic men's hockey game on February 13 against Norway (10:00 a.m., CBC).
