    Description: Sabres winger Chris Stewart scored the team's lone goal during Tuesday's loss against the Flames.
    Insight: He also had four shots on goal. Stewart is not much of a fantasy option, with just seven goalsm 16 points, and a minus-23 rating through 46 games.
     
    12/27/2014 10:02:00 PM
    Description: Sabres winger Chris Stewart scored the game-tying goal at the 11:51 mark of the third period to send Saturday's game against the Islanders into overtime.
    Insight: Buffalo then won in a shootout, 4-3. Stewart is not really a fantasy option, though, with five goals, four assists and a minus-15 rating in 35 games this season.
     
    9/22/2014 6:16:00 PM
    Description: Sabres winger Chris Stewart is one of the biggest boom-or-bust fantasy hockey players for the 2014-2015 season.
    Insight: Stewart told Buffalo News that he has high expectations for himself this season, and he has the motivation to succeed being in a contract year. Still, Stewart sometimes goes long stretches without a point. It will depend greatly on his situation this year, but he should be one of Buffalo's top six forwards with around 17 goals and 30-35 points.
     
    4/13/2014 3:15:00 PM
    Description: Buffalo winger Chris Stewart (ankle) is not expected to play in the season finale Sunday against the Islanders. Neither are Brian Flynn (lower body), Matt D'Agostini (lower body) and Christian Ehrhoff (concussion). SOURCE: nhl.com
    Insight: Stewart (15 G, 11 A, 116 PIM, 109 SOG) missed a month due to a high ankle sprain and played just two games before leaving 20 seconds into Saturday's contest.
     
    4/8/2014 4:40:00 PM
    Description: Buffalo winger Chris Stewart (ankle) will return to the lineup Tuesday, according to nhl.com.
    Insight: Stewart (15 G, 11 A, 116 PIM, 109 SOG) was given a timetable for 4-5 weeks back on March 11 due to a high ankle sprain. He's returning a little earlier than that.
     
    3/11/2014 5:50:00 PM
    Description: Buffalo winger Chris Stewart (ankle) will miss the next 4-5 weeks, according to the Buffalo News.
    Insight: Stewart (15 G, 11 A, 116 PIM, 109 SOG) could be done for the season and should be dropped in all fantasy leagues.
     
    3/9/2014 1:49:00 PM
    Description: Buffalo winger Chris Stewart (undisclosed) will miss at least another week, according to the Sabres on Twitter.
    Insight: Stewart (15 G, 11 A, 116 PIM, 109 SOG) has produced just four points in his last 24 games, though he's spent 43 minutes in the penalty box during that stretch to give himself some fantasy value.
     
    3/7/2014 12:18:00 PM
    Description: Sabres winger Chris Stewart is doubtful for Friday's game against Florida due to a knee injury.
    Insight: Stewart (15 G, 11 A, 112 PIM, 107 SOG) did most of his damage with St. Louis this season and has yet to score with Buffalo.
     
    2/28/2014 8:58:00 PM
    Description: Winger Chris Stewart was included in the trade that sent Ryan Miller to the Blues and Jaroslav Halak to the Sabres.
    Insight: Stewart (15 G, 11 A, 112 PIM, 107 SOG) is now a member of the Sabres, but he might not be there for long. A three-way deal between St. Louis, Buffalo and Ottawa was discussed earlier this week, according to Bob McKenzie of tsn.ca, and the Senators covet Stewart. He'll get more playing time on both Buffalo and Ottawa than the 13:42 per game he played with the Blues, so his fantasy value is on the rise.
     
    1/2/2014 7:48:00 PM
    Description: Blues right wing Chris Stewart will play Thursday despite taking a puck to the face Tuesday. SOURCE: St. Louis Post-Dispatch
    Insight: Stewart has 13 goals, 22 points, 73 PIM, 72 SOG and a +11 in 39 games, so he's a good all-around fantasy option. However, he's unlikely to pick up his sixth fighting major of the season until his face heals.
     
    12/31/2013 8:18:00 PM
    Description: Blues right wing Chris Stewart took a puck to the face Tuesday against the Wild. SOURCE: Blues on Twitter
    Insight: He'll be out for the rest of the game and could miss more time depending on his diagnosis. Stewart (13 goals, nine assists in 39 games this season) lasted just a minute and 25 seconds before exiting.
     
    Hot12/22/2013 10:17:00 AM
    Description: St. Louis right wing Chris Stewart's hat trick helped the Blues beat Edmonton on Saturday.
    Insight: Stewart also had one assist, four SOG and a +3. He's recorded 13 goals, 21 points, 65 SOG, a +10 and 73 PIM in 35 games, so he has very good fantasy value.
     
    Hot12/16/2013 10:30:00 PM
    Description: St. Louis right wing Chris Stewart netted two goals in Monday night's loss to Ottawa.
    Insight: He's now scored in three straight games. Stewart's +/- over that span is +5. You can't afford to have him on your bench right now. Make sure Stewart is in your lineup Tuesday when the Blues host San Jose.
     
    11/19/2013 6:26:00 PM
    Description: Blues winger Chris Stewart missed Tuesday's practice with the flu but is still expected to play Tuesday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
    Insight: Stewart's biggest fantasy contribution comes in PIM. He has three goals, seven points, 55 PIM and 39 SOG in 19 games this season.
     
    10/29/2013 1:28:00 PM
    Description: Blues winger Chris Stewart is probable for Tuesday's game against Winnipeg while recovering from an upper body injury.
    Insight: Stewart's 18 goals and 18 assists in 48 games exceeded what he produced the previous season in 79 games, but his mediocre two points through the first nine games might mean he's returning to a lower production level.
     
    7/19/2013 6:16:00 PM
    Description: The Blues signed Chris Stewart to a two-year, $8.3 million contract to avoid arbitration.
    Insight: Stewart's 18 goals and 18 assists in 48 games exceeded what he produced the previous season in 79 games, but 10 goals and 24 points came during an 18-game stretch from Feb. 9 to March 16 when the team was dealing with some injuries.
     
    2/10/2013 3:20:00 PM
    Description: Blues forward Chris Stewart had a goal and two assists Saturday night against the Ducks.
    Insight: Those were Stewart's first and second assists of the season. He's more of a goal scoring specialist, but he does that well and his PIM contributions make him a decent fantasy play.
     
    1/26/2013 10:59:00 PM
    Description: Blues forward Chris Stewart had a goal on five shots and a plus-two differential Saturday in a win over Dallas.
    Insight: Stewart has three goals in the first five games after putting up 15 last season. He's a decent fantasy option due to his ability to rack up PIM.
     
    11/16/2011 5:48:00 PM
    Description: The NHL has suspended Chris Stewart three games for his hit from behind on Niklas Kronwall during Tuesday's Red Wings-Blues game. TSN
    Insight: Stewart hadn't been suspended before, although the type of hit he delivered to Kronwall is the type that the NHL is trying to eliminate. Stewart has been largely ineffective this year with just five points (3g-2a) in 17 games.
     
    3/31/2011 1:07:00 AM
    Description: Chris Stewart scored a goal and added two assists with a +2 in the Blues' 10-3 win over Detroit on Wednesday. Yahoo Sports
    Insight: Stewart has now scored 14 goals in 21 games as a member of the Blues. He is also on a four-game goal streak and a five-game point streak. Why Colorado decided to give him up is still a mystery.
