Stamkos experiences possible setback in Monday practice

According to TSN on Monday, Canadian men's hockey star Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning cut his practice short because he was experiencing some pain.

Even though Stamkos claims he is ahead of schedule after breaking his leg against the Boston Bruins in a matinee game on November 11, one needs to wonder if he will be physically ready to suit up for Canada at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

If Stamkos is unable to play, it appears the top three choices for the Canadian management team would be Joe Thornton of the San Jose Sharks, Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers and Stamkos's teammate in Tampa Bay--Martin St. Louis.

Thornton leads the NHL with 47 assists, Giroux leads the Flyers with 47 points and St. Louis leads the Lightning with 52 points.

Canada's first game of the Olympic men's hockey tournament will be February 13 against Norway.
