St. Louis Blues re-sign F Chris Stewart to 2-year contract

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues and forward Chris Stewart avoided arbitration and agreed to terms on a two-year contract.

The 25-year-old Stewart was a restricted free agent after leading the team in scoring. He played in all 48 games and had 36 points, including 18 goals. Stewart was scheduled to have an arbitration hearing on Monday that now isn't necessary.

Stewart has 100 goals and 202 points in 319 career NHL games, including 48 goals and 89 points in 153 games with the Blues. Stewart was acquired by St. Louis with defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk from the Colorado Avalanche in 2011 for former No. 1 overall pick Erik Johnson.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
