Months of watching and waiting for daily Steven Stamkos recovery updates may be about to come to an end.

The Tampa Bay Lightning's star forward told reporters after Monday's practice that he is targeting the team's Saturday game against the Detroit Red Wings for his long-awaited return.

Stamkos called Monday his "best day yet," as he participated in a more physical team practice.

Should Saturday go to plan, the 23-year-old centre intends to play for Team Canada at the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

Stamkos fractured the tibia in his right leg in a Nov. 11 game against the Boston Bruins and underwent surgery the following day.

He has scored 14 goals and 23 points in 17 for the Lightning this season prior to his injury.
