Steven Stamkos Reaches 1,000 Point Milestone December 01, 2022 - Tampa Bay Times
With his assist on the Lightning’s second goal Thursday night against the Flyers, Lightning captain Steven Stamkos became the 95th player in NHL history to accumulate 1,000 career points.
He is one of only 10 active players to have reached the milestone.
Stamkos, who is already the Lightning’s all-time leading scorer after passing Martin St. Louis (953 points) last season, becomes the first player in franchise history to reach 1,000 points. He is six goals away from reaching 500 for his career, a feat accomplished by just 46 players in NHL history. He reached the 500-assist mark earlier this season.
Stamkos has played his entire career in Tampa Bay, where he won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 2020 and 2021.Source: Tampa Bay Times
