We may have a serious injury to a star player.

While it's still too early to tell it does in fact appear that Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos has suffered some kind of significant injury to his leg or knee during tonight's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

We have no details on the injury at this time, but there is a video of the incident, and while it's unclear exactly what happened, you can clearly see Stamkos favoring his leg as he leaves both the ice and the Lightning bench.

More to come.

Update: Th Lightning have confirmed he will not return to the game.
