Steven Stamkos (blood clot) thinks he'll be able to play within 12-24 hours after being taken off blood thinners.
Stamkos doesn't know when he'll be taken off blood thinners though. "Could be weeks, could be months," he said. In other words, while things might happen quickly once he's off the medication, that doesn't mean he's close to being able to play. In the meantime, Stamkos has been skating without taking contact.

"It was fantastic," Stamkos said. "Any time you can get on the ice and just be around the guys it's uplifting, for sure." He participated partially in the session, but didn't take contact.

Steven Stamkos (vascular surgery) took part in Tuesday's practice in a no-contact role.

He skated on the fourth line with Mike Blunden and Brian Boyle during some rushes and took some half one timers, but he didn't participate in power play drills. There's been no timetable placed on his return, but he was expected to miss 1-3 months. It's unclear how long he has to stay on blood thinners following vascular surgery to repair a blood clot in his right collarbone area.

Steven Stamkos underwent successful vascular surgery on Monday.

GM Steve Yzerman said the procedure treated a type of Vascular Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (called Effort Thrombosis), which was located near Stamkos' right collarbone. He is expected to make a full recovery, but he won't return to the ice for one to three months. Stamkos will be re-evaluated in about two weeks.

Lightning GM Steve Yzerman is confident that Steven Stamkos' blood clot won't impact his career long-term.

"We do not anticipate any negative impact on his return to his playing career moving forward," Yzerman said. "Strangely and ironically we dealt with this situation, we know what we are dealing with and are comfortable with the medical team we have and the procedure we are doing." Stamkos, who's an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, may have played his last game as a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Steven Stamkos has a blood clot in his right arm and will be out for one to three months, Lightning GM Steve Yzerman announced.

First and foremost, Stamkos will have a procedure done Monday and he’s expected to make a full recovery. Andrei Vasilevskiy dealt with a blood clot near his collarbone in early September and he returned Oct. 28 in an AHL start. The obvious takeaway here is that this is a massive blow to the Lightning’s Stanley Cup chances as Stamkos is an offensive threat whenever he has the puck. His regular season will close with 36 goals and 64 points in 77 games. Stamkos missed his first game in two years Saturday night.

Steven Stamkos ripped his teammates after Thursday's 3-0 loss to Montreal.

"We just had too many passengers tonight," Stamkos said. "We are at a point in the season where that can't happen, that's unacceptable. I don't care who we are playing, whether it's the best team in the league or the worst team in the league, this is almost go time with the playoffs here." Coach Jon Cooper wants his group to play a consistent game from beginning to end and posting three shots in the third period is not the way to do it.
