Stewart picked up two assists, five PIM, and was a plus-3 in Saturday's win over the Kings.

A great fantasy outing for Stewart, who has recorded points in back-to-back games. Skating on a line with Mikko Koivu, Stewart has recorded nine points (three goals) in 14 games since being traded to Minnesota. He's seeing power-play time and has been producing steadily for a surging Wild team, so he's worth riding while he's hot.

Stewart scored a goal and chipped in an assist Tuesday in a 6-2 win over New Jersey.

He's now got goals in consecutive games after sort of sleepwalking through his first three contests with the Wild. If Stewart can have an offensive renaissance in Minnesota, it'll go a long way toward building a deep playoff run.

Stewart had an assist and was on the ice for 15:06 in his Wild debut in Tuesday's win over Ottawa.

It looks like Stewart will be on one of the Wild's top three lines with Miko Koivu, but the third skater on the line changed during the game and may again for the Wild's next matchup. Stewart got just over two minutes of power play ice time, so he'll have a significant role with his new team.

Stewart has been traded to the Wild in exchange for what is expected to be a 2017 second-rounder, WGR550.com reports.

Even though this deal was snuck in just ahead of the deadline, Stewart was as good of a bet as any player in hockey to get dealt Monday. He'll head to a playoff contender, which should immediately boost his plus-minus prospects. And Minnesota might start to be considered Buffalo West, with four former Sabres on the roster once Stewart gets settled. Stewart has a disappointing 25 points in 61 games this season, but he's been playing better lately with the potential to do more with better talent around him. Keep an eye on his line assignment, though it's worth noting that inconsistency has always been a part of his game.

Stewart scored his 10th goal of the season in a 4-2 win over Columbus on Tuesday.

The goal, scored on the power play, snaps a five-game pointless streak for Stewart, who had caught fire just a few weeks before. Despite his recent drought, he is still getting top-line minutes, skating around 18-19 minutes per game. Trade rumors concerning Stewart have died down a little after his offensive outburst but he is still certainly being talked about. If he gets traded, he gets a nice boost in value for poolies.
