Steven played his first game in the NHL in Prague, Czech Republic, at the beginning of the season 2008 – 2009. He had to wait until the 8th game to score his first point. In February 2009, Stamkos scored his first hat trick in the NHL, against the Chicago Blackhawks, the youngest of the franchise to do so.

In the 2014-15 season, the team made the Stanley Cup final, but lost. In the next season, Steven recorded both his 500th game and 500th point.
