Speedy center Steve Stamkos is getting closer to returning to full play after he took his first practice with the Tampa Bay Lightning since he broke his shin. 

It was reportedly his first morning skate for some time after he suffered the injury on November 11th in a game against the Boston Bruins. 

Stamkos is a key member of the Team Canada squad that travels to Russia as well next month to defend their Olympic title. 

The center remains confident he can be back before then, and he will have to be if the Canadian's want to stop a powerful Russia side, who are the favorites for gold. 

Ahead of the Lightning's game tonight against the New York Islanders, he was seen skating on his own and joining his team on the ice at the end of workouts. 

Tampa fans will be very relieved to hear of their main man's progress, as he was having a prolific season before his injury, with 14 goals and nine assists in 17 games.
