From his dad:
Chris Stamkos said from his Unionville, Ontario, home that he watched the game and saw what happened. He said Stamkos finished a check on Timo Helbling in the first period and either a stick or elbow of the Swiss player hit Stamkos in the mouth and jaw. There were reports out of Germany, though, that said it appeared Stamkos injured his shoulder. Either way, Stamkos left the ice for about 10 minutes, returned for the second period and then did not play the third.

"It didn't seem terrible," Chris Stamkos said. "I didn't see any cuts."

Team Canada characterized the injury simply as upper-body, and there was no immediate word on if Stamkos will play in Canada's next game on Friday. Chris Stamkos said he had yet to speak to Steven, but added, "If it was something bad, he would have called me. That's why I don't think it's serious.''
Stamkos left Canada’s game today with what was called an upper body injury & did not finish. They plan on reevaluating him in the morning.
