Chris Stewart said he wouldn't be surprised if the Buffalo Sabres traded him before Monday's trade deadline.

"Like I’ve said all year, it’s out of your control," Stewart said. "I’m not going to say I’m expecting it, but I won’t be surprised." Stewart is going to be an unrestricted free-agent at the end of the season and he probably won't be a member of the Sabres after the deadline. The 27-year-old isn't having a very good season but he does have the talent to be a point-producing power forward in the NHL. He has just 11 goals and 25 points in 61 games this season.

He's doing a good job of increasing his fantasy value right now with four goals and two assists in his past five games.
