We kick off Season 3 of the #CLP with number 91 of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Steven Stamkos, the 2008 first overall draft pick, two-time Maurice Richard Trophy winner, 4-time All-star team member and close friend. Our summer program began as a way for Gary Roberts to help Stammer with his own training, that decision has led to so much more, including this podcast We loved this interview, and feel very fortunate to have Steven open up on so many personal topics. We discuss the recent injuries that have plagued his last few seasons, what he has learned from adversity, why you need to be continuously adapting, and so much more. The parallels and lessons learned in his career are relatable to any vocation or journey in life and we hope you take something valuable away. Please rate and review!
