Stamkos sits out Sochi Olympics

Canada's Olympic ice hockey team will be without one of their star forwards. Steven Stamkos has released a joint statement with his NHL club the Tampa Bay Lightning saying he will not play in the Sochi Olympics.

Stamkos has nearly recovered from a broken leg suffered in November, but his club's executive Steve Yzerman said the bone is not completely healed and doctors have advised against playing.
