Steven Stamkos is still believed to be on schedule from his expected four-month recovery from mid-November knee surgery.

The Lightning have not set a timetable for Stamkos' return, but it could come at some point in March. Stamkos has continued his rehab by doing off-ice and pool workouts. Tampa Bay has gone 15-18-6 since losing their star player and captain. Once he gets back on the ice it could take some time before he feels normal again.

Steven Stamkos has been granted clearance to increase his workload, as he continues to rehab from knee surgery.

Steven Stamkos (knee) is still on crutches and he continues his rehabilitation.

"It's a milestone-based recovery," said Scott Faucett, an orthopedic surgeon in Washington who has performed surgeries like Stamkos' on many college hockey players. "You can't work on strength if your knee is swollen. If you're not strong enough, you can't do a single leg squat or tolerate 5, 10 minutes of skating." He likely won't be able to resume skating for another month and isn't projected to be ready to return until mid-March. Stamkos hasn't spoken to the media since he suffered a lateral meniscus tear, which required surgery to repair. Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said, "He's doing fine" when asked for an update. That suggests that he remains on schedule.

Steven Stamkos is playing with plenty of confidence this year and he has piled up 49 shots in 13 games.
