Chris Stewart is interested in re-signing with the Minnesota Wild.

Stewart was acquired by the Wild on March 2 in exchange for a 2017 second round pick. He finished the season with 14 goals and 36 points in 81 contests with Buffalo and Minnesota. He also had two assists in eight playoff games before suffering a separated shoulder. "Hopefully there's an opportunity for me to come back here," Stewart said. "I thought the fit was perfect." Minnesota's cap situation might make it difficult for the two sides to agree to terms though.

Chris Stewart picked up an assist in Thursday's playoff opener against St. Louis.

His helper came on a power-play goal by Matt Dumba, which gave the Wild a 2-0 lead in what would eventually become a 4-2 victory. "He's a very underrated playmaker," coach Mike Yeo said. "We know that he can score goals, we know that he can be dangerous around the net. He’s got very deceptive speed, and I've been real impressed with some of the subtle plays he's made." He's fit in nicely on the second line with Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker.

Chris Stewart's status for Saturday afternoon's game against the Blues is not known.

We are not sure why he didn't skate Friday but instead worked off ice with a conditioning coach. He may have just been taking advantage of the fact that the skate was optional. Just be mindful that there is a possibility Stewart may not play against the Blues.

The 27-year-old has been criticized for his lack of consistency in the last few years but he has been effective since being acquired by Minnesota. Stewart has nine points in 14 games since joining the Wild and he has found chemistry with linemates Nino Niederreiter and Mikko Koivu. Stewart finished the game with a plus-3 rating, five penalty minutes, two hits and a takeaway.

Chris Stewart tallied a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 win versus New Jersey.

Chris Stewart will skate with Mikko Koivu and Thomas Vanek during his Wild debut on Tuesday night versus Ottawa.

Through 61 games with the Sabres this season, Stewart has amassed 11 goals, 25 points, 63 PIMs, and 82 hits. Not too shabby for the burly power forward. The trio will combine for Minnesota's second line.
Mar 3 - 8:02 PM

Minnesota has landed Chris Stewart from Buffalo for a second-round pick in 2017.

Stewart has 11 goals, 25 points and 63 penalty minutes in 61 games this season. The pending unrestricted free agent was expected to be moved by the Sabres and according to sources Buffalo is picking up half of Stewart's salary.
Mar 2 - 3:10 PM

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.
Mar 1 - 9:58 AM

Chris Stewart notched a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-3 victory against Vancouver.

He's likely to be traded before Monday's deadline. The pending unrestricted free agent has registered 15 of his 25 points since the calender turned to 2015. "Whatever is going to happen is out of our control," said Stewart. "It's part of the business. We're just as antsy as you are to see what happens."
Feb 27 - 9:04 AM

Chris Stewart netted a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 victory against Columbus.

His 10th marker of the season was also his fifth on the power play. Stewart had four penalty minutes and four shots in the contest as well. He is Buffalo's biggest trade chip to play entering the deadline next week. Stewart has been better of late, but his goal Tuesday was his first point in six outings.
