Chris Stewart News
Stewart will be back in the Wild lineup on Tuesday.

Stewart was with the Wild for the second half of 2014-15, before going to the Ducks last season where he collected 20 points (8G / 12A) in 56 games. The former first round pick has struggled to gain any real traction in his NHL career and is more of a bottom-6 depth forward than the top-6 power-forward he was projected to be.
Stewart (jaw) is expected to return to the Ducks lineup on Saturday.
Stewart has been sidelined with a broken jaw since February 11th, but it looks like he will return to tonight in Ottawa. Stewart has registered 18 points (8G / 10A) in 47 games this season.
