Chris Stewart wants to re-establish himself as an NHL power forward and Friday night he took a very big step in that direction.
Stewart scored twice and just missed a third goal in Buffalo's 6-4 loss to Toronto. He also won a lopsided fight with the Buds' Sam Carrick. If Stewart continues to show this much life to his game, he will be a very nice sleeper pick come draft day. Sep 27 - 8:36 AM

Chris Stewart had a nice start to his game on Friday night as he picked up two goals in the first period.

Stewart is a possible bounce back candidate this year after managing only 26 points last season between St. Louis and Buffalo.

Chris Stewart has high expectations for himself going into the 2014-15 season.

"I want to re-establish myself as one of the best power forwards in the game," he said. "I think when I've been given that opportunity in my career to showcase what I can do, I've delivered." Stewart skated in just five games with the Buffalo Sabres after he was acquired from St. Louis in the Ryan Miller trade. He injured his ankle after the move, but is recovered now and he's looking to make a positive impact with his new club. Stewart's current contract expires after the upcoming season, so he has plenty of motivation to succeed.
Sep 16 - 7:17 AM

Chris Stewart is optimistic about the Buffalo Sabres' short-term future.

While the Sabres are in the early stages of a rebuilding effort, Stewart doesn't think it will take the team long to bounce back. At the same time, he realizes he might not be a part of it. "Obviously you're subject to all those trade rumors and all the stuff like that, but that's out of my control," Stewart said. "Like I've said before, as long as I'm a Buffalo Sabre, I'm just going to worry about helping this team win hockey games and that's all that's on my mind." Regardless of who he ends up playing for, he'll be looking to bounce back after recording 26 points and 118 penalty minutes in 63 games in 2013-14.

Chris Stewart's lower-body injury is related to his ankle.

Stewart was one of several Sabres' players to sustain an injury during Saturday's game. Buffalo will wrap up its season on Sunday.
Apr 13 - 9:59 AM

Chris Stewart left Saturday's contest very early with a lower-body injury.

He logged just 20 seconds of ice time in a 4-1 loss to Boston. Stewart has played in just five games with Buffalo since he was acquired from St. Louis. The Sabres have one match remaining on their 2013-14 schedule and we would assume that Stewart won't be available for it.
Apr 12 - 3:19 PM

Chris Stewart skated on Buffalo's top line with Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno on Tuesday night.

He had two penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating in 17:09 of ice time in the Sabres' 4-2 loss to Detroit. It was his first game since Mar. 6 when he suffered an ankle injury.
Apr 9 - 7:41 AM

In a somewhat unexpected twist, Buffalo Sabres winger Chris Stewart is expected to suit up against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

While he can be hit-or-miss, he tends to either bring PIM (116) or points (15 goals, 26 points in 60 games played) to the table, making him an intriguing consideration for those in need of last-minute help.
Apr 8 - 5:56 PM

While there's a chance that Chris Stewart might be out for the season, but there's also a possibility that he could return for the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

Stewart really struggled lately, with zero points in the last six games and only one assist in his last 12. He hasn't scored a goal since Jan. 10, which is glaring even with injury issues. Even so, he's a great source of PIM, making him a potentially profitable addition even if can't produce points.
Apr 6 - 4:21 PM

Chris Stewart (ankle) took part in Thursday's morning skate.

"He's way ahead," coach Ted Nolan said of Stewart's recovery. "We thought for sure he wouldn't be touching the ice until mid-summer. That shows you kind of the rehab he's been getting by our medical team." He hasn't played since Mar. 6 because of an ankle injury.
Apr 4 - 7:53 AM

Chris Stewart (ankle) is expected to miss the next four-to-five weeks.

In other words, there's a chance that Stewart will return before the end of the season, but it's a slim one. Given that Buffalo has nothing left to play for, there's no real reason for him to push himself to return before the end of the campaign. He has 26 points and 112 penalty minutes in 60 games this season.
Mar 11 - 12:30 PM

The Buffalo Sabres announced that Chris Stewart is among those players expected to miss at least one week with his undisclosed ailment.

That could mean up to five games missed, as the Sabres have a game on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and March 15 and 16. The 26-year-old only has one assist since Jan. 21, but he's bringing value in sporadic PIM, as he also 25 penalty minutes in that span. The hope is that a little stability will do something for his game, but his leg injury cannot help.
Mar 9 - 1:10 PM

Chris Stewart (undisclosed) will not participate in Friday's game.

Stewart was hurt during Thursday's contest. There's no word yet on the severity of Stewart's injury. The Sabres acquired him on Feb. 28 as part of the Ryan Miller trade.
Mar 7 - 6:13 PM

Chris Stewart exited Thursday's match with Tampa Bay in the third period with an undisclosed ailment.

He didn't return after a collision with Lightning goalie Anders Lindback and it's doubtful that he'll be available to play against Florida on Friday night. Stewart had a plus-2 rating and four penalty minutes prior to leaving. He doesn't have a point in two outings with the Sabres.
Mar 7 - 8:02 AM

Chris Stewart plans to make the best of his time in Buffalo, even if it's very brief.

He might be flipped to another team prior to Wednesday's trade deadline after he was acquired by the Sabres on Friday as part of the Ryan Miller deal. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed at first," Stewart said of being traded. "If you think I'm going to come in here and pout and feel sorry for myself, that's not the kind of person I am. I'm going to make the best of the situation and look at the positive." He has 15 goals, 26 points and 112 penalty minutes in 58 games this campaign.
