Chris Stewart got the scoring started for either team as he showed great hand-eye coordination on a perfect tip-in shot. Unfortunately for the Sabres it was their only goal of the game. It was Stewart's seventh of the year and his second goal in as many games. He now has four points in his last three games for a nice little streak. He is getting some buzz around the hockey world as potential trade bait. Why not if you are Buffalo as it has lost 12 in a row now. Jan 28 - 12:13 AM

Chris Stewart is drawing some interest from the Predators, according to HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman.

Stewart continues to generate buzz from around the league, and it really seems like only a matter of time before he’s moved. The Flames have also been linked to him, according to Friedman. Stewart has five goals and 12 points this season.

Chris Stewart was absent from practice because of the flu.

He is considered questionable to play Tuesday at this time. Stewart has earned two assists in his past three games to give him 12 points in 42 appearances this year.
Jan 12 - 9:02 AM

Chris Stewart registered just his fourth goal of the season Tuesday as the Sabres were beaten by Detroit by a score of 6-3.

Stewart's production thus far has been a major disappointment for the fantasy players who believed he could take advantage of being a big fish in the small pond that is Buffalo. With just eight points in 34 games it's fair to say he hasn't lived up to expectations. Andre Benoit and Nicolas Deslauriers also scored for the Sabres in the losing effort.

The Flames have had internal discussions about trading for Sabres forward Chris Stewart, according to Elliotte Friedman of HNIC.

Friedman says the Flames have put it on the backburner, for now. Buffalo has targeted a mid-level prospect and an AHL player in return. Stewart looked like he’d become a bonafide power forward early in his career, but he’s been nothing but a disappointment in recent seasons. The 27-year-old has three goals and four points this season. Stewart is in the final year of a deal that carries a $4.15 million cap hit.

Chris Stewart wasn't happy about being a healthy scratch on Tuesday.

"I'm not happy about it. I don't agree with being a healthy scratch, but I'm going to take it on the chin like a man," he said. "I'm happy the boys got the win, it was a big two points. Put the work boots on and get ready for the next time I'm back in the lineup." The Sabres defeated the Los Angeles Kings by a 1-0 score that night, so it's unclear if Stewart will draw back in for Thursday's contest against Calgary. Coach Ted Nolan hasn't ruled Stewart out yet.

Chris Stewart will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night against LA.

"He needs to play the way he can," Coach Nolan said of Stewart. "He’s a big powerful forward and powerful forwards can’t be playing a soft game." Stewart came into the season trying to rebuild his value as a player, and was already seen as a trade chip, so clearly things have gone sour for both him and the team. He has four points in 27 games this season.

Chris Stewart dressed in Saturday's game against Florida.

He was circled as a potential scratch candidate after the morning skate, but ended up skating on the fourth line. Patrick Kaleta was a healthy scratch instead. Stewart logged a season-low 7:48 of ice time in the contest.

Chris Stewart and Andre Benoit are expected to be healthy scratches against Florida on Saturday night.

In 26 games Stewart has just four points and 25 PIMs, and Benoit hasn't produced even that much. So no big surprise that Coach Nolan has them sitting.

Chris Stewart skated as an extra forward in the Sabres' practice on Friday.

Stewart has had a terrible season and it looks as if Buffalo coach Ted Nolan's patience with him is beginning to run out. It is possible that Stewart will be a healthy scratch against Florida Saturday night as a spot is needed for the return of Drew Stafford. Stay tuned for updates as to whether Stewart will dress against the Cats.

Chris Stewart scored for the Sabres in their 4-3 shootout victory against the Canadiens on Saturday.

Stewart was once a valuable fantasy player, with the ability to post at least 15 goals, 30-40 points and amass at least a penalty minute per game. However, that’s long gone as he has been underwhelming in recent years and has just three goals and four points in 24 games this year, with 25 penalty minutes. Brian Flynn and Zemgus Girgensons scored the other goals.

Chris Stewart scored a goal in Buffalo's 2-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night.

Stewart has been a huge disappointment this year. The goal was his second of the season and he now has just three points in 22 games. The 27-year-old beat Jets' goaltender Ondrej Pavelec with a backhander on a breakaway. The loss snapped Buffalo's three-game winning streak. Stewart is an unrestricted free-agent at the end of the season and there's a good chance that the Sabres will deal him before the trade deadline.

Chris Stewart scored his first goal of the season in Buffalo’s 3-2 shootout win over Detroit on Sunday.

The 27-year-old has been extremely disappointing this season. He has just two points in 13 games and is a minus-4. Buffalo has a young roster and they struggle to produce offence, which doesn’t help Stewart’s fantasy value. Stewart’s value could increase significantly if the Sabres decide to use him as trade bait. Zemgus Girgensons scored the winner in the shootout.
