Mark Stuart is looking forward to see what coach Paul Maurice has prepared for training camp.
"I'm excited and I'm sure he is to start the season with this team. We've had some time to put things in place and it's going to start in training camp," said Stuart, who signed a four-year, $10.5 million contract in the summer. "We're not starting mid-season where we've got a game in two days. We got a good grasp of that last season but it'll be nice to start training camp from Day 1 with all that and go from there." Maurice took over from Claude Noel during the 2013-14 campaign and he got an extension as well during the off-season. Stuart is also just three games away from reaching the 500-mark in his career.

Mark Stuart has inked a four-year, $10.5 million contract extension with the Winnipeg Jets.

Stuart is a defensive defenseman with 81 penalty minutes, 163 hits, and 118 blocked shots in 50 games. This represents a significant raise over his previous $1.7 million annual cap hit.
Mar 5 - 3:59 PM

Mark Stuart wants to stay with the Winnipeg Jets.

"I believe in this team and this organization, and we're on the verge of doing good things here and I want to be a part of it," Stuart said. "I want to stay in Winnipeg." He can be an unrestricted free agent this summer, which of course has led to some speculation that he could be traded next week. Stuart can pick up penalty minutes, hits and blocks, but he doesn't get many points.
Feb 28 - 7:33 AM

Mark Stuart was credited with 12 hits in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Washington.

That is an extremly high total for one game. Stuart has always been a good source of hits (148 in 46 games this season), so if hits are a category in your hockey pool, consider Stuart for a roster spot. He has some fantasy value especially since he is partnering with phenom Jacob Trouba.
Feb 8 - 10:05 AM

Mark Stuart is eligible for unrestricted free agency after this season.

He has seven points, 63 penalty minutes and a plus-3 rating in 41 games. He has also been a good influence on his rookie defense partner Jacob Trouba.

Mark Stuart will return to action Sunday night against Colorado.

Mark Stuart scored a goal in Winnipeg's 6-2 loss to Edmonton Monday evening.

Mark Stuart got his first goal of the season Wednesday night.

He opened the scoring in Winnipeg's 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders. Stuart isn't known of his offensive contributions, as that was just his 20th career goal in 443 contests. "Really? Wow, it only took nine years," Stuart joked after the game. "I didn't know that. That's pretty cool." He shouldn't be on your radar in standard leagues.

Mark Stuart will be back in the Jets' lineup Saturday night against Minnesota.

Mark Stuart (hip) may return to action later this week.

"I hope so," he said. "I'll talk to the trainers. We'll see what their thinking is. I haven't asked them that. Afraid of what they were going to say. It feels good. I've had some good skates. Still haven't gotten a lot of contact in." Stuart hasn't played since Oct. 29.
Tue, Nov 19, 2013 08:03:00 AM
