Who to Collect (In Retrospect) - Chris Stewart

Chris Stewart was born in Scarborough, Ontario and currently is the hottest player in the NHL as he plays for the Colorado Avalanche. Chris is the younger brother of Anthony Stewart, who plays for the Atlanta Thrashers. Stewart is a big power forward who is a strong skater and is very hard to knock off the puck. He's not afraid to get physical but he has great hands for a big man. Stewart’s size, physicality, and soft hands will make him a force to be reckoned with in the NHL

On June 24, 2006, Stewart was drafted 18th overall in the first round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche. Although usually playing in his brother Anthony's shadow, Chris has had much more success in the NHL than his older brother. On December 5, 2008, Stewart received his first NHL call-up by the Avalanche and made his NHL debut in a 2-1 loss to the Dallas Stars. Stewart scored his first NHL goal against the LA Kings a few nights later. On January 21, 2009, Stewart recorded his first Gordie Howe hat trick also against the Kings. During Stewart's 60th game of the 2009-2010 season, he recorded his first career hat trick against the St. Louis Blues. He had two even strength goals and one goal on a penalty shot.

Although he didn't burst onto the scene in his rookie season, his sophomore season has been far from the bust which plagues many players. Stewart has 25 goals and 27 assists in 61 games this season. The newly stocked Avalanche will be a force for years to come with Stewart joining Matt Duchene, Ryan O'Reilly and the newly acquired Peter Mueller.
