The Avalanche have acquired Brad Stuart from the Sharks for second and sixth round draft picks.

Stuart, 34, had just 11 points (3G / 8A) in 61 games with the Sharks last season. His offence is not where it used to be, but he brings a stable and physical game to the Avalanche's blueline.

Stuart (upper-body) returned to the Sharks lineup on Monday.

Stuart played 19 minutes and 57 seconds, including a game high three minutes and four seconds on the penalty kill. He was credited with two hits and one blocked shot. It was his first game since February 7th and head coach Todd McLellan viewed it as a success. “I thought he played well. He had some jump in his stride,” McLellan said. “The conditioning part of it looks really good. The rust part of it is going to come, but he was better than I thought he would be. That’s a real positive thing for us.”

Stuart (upper-body) skated with the Sharks this morning.

This was Stuart's first full practice since suffering an upper-body injury in early February. His return to the ice does not mean that he is ready to return to the lineup, but is a step in the right direction. The Sharks are red-hot right now so there is no reason for them to rush him back.

Stuart (upper-body) will not travel on the Sharks' upcoming road trip.

Stuart suffered an upper body injury in the Sharks’ final game before the Olympic break on Feb. 7 against Columbus, and has not practiced the past two days. He skated on his own on Monday morning. Head coach Todd McLellan danced around an inquiry as to whether Stuart’s ailment was short term or long term. “Any type of games missed for us, it feels like long term now, because he’s had the two weeks to heal,” McLellan said. “But, he won’t get through this road trip. After that, we’ll see where he is when we get back.”

The Sharks will get Stuart back from his three game suspension tomorrow. He will play in Boyle's place with Irwin vs. Dallas.

Stuart played 17:04 and registered a plus-1 rating in his only game with San Jose this season. Seeing top-pair minutes on a dominant Sharks team should help his fantasy value until Boyle returns.

Brad Stuart (lower-body) will return to the Sharks blueline tonight.

Stuart will make his season debut tonight, at home against the Rangers. He will replace Scott Hannan and be paired with Jason Demers. Stuart posted the worst offensive statistics of his career in 2012-13 (0 G / 6 A). He will look to bounce back this season on a Sharks team that will produce offensively.

TRADE: The rights to defenseman Brad Stuart have been traded to San Jose for Andrew Murray and a conditional pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

We knew this one was coming for a while as Stuart wanted to return back out West. Stuart shouldn't have any more value with the Sharks than he did with the Wings.
