Stewart (illness) is likely to play Saturday against the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart has missed Minnesota's last two games, but you can expect him to suit up for the Wild in their regular season finale. While Stewart only has 13 goals and eight assists in 78 games this season, the Coyotes have allowed 3.15 goals and 34.0 shots on net per game, so it's a pretty favorable matchup.

Stewart came down with an illness Wednesday, per Wild coach Bruce Boudreau.

EDGE Analysis

There has been nothing to suggest that Stewart's illness is anything out of the ordinary, but he'll presumably be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's road contest in Colorado. The bottom-six winger has played extremely well in limited action, notching 13 goals and eight assists over 10:23 of ice time and 78 games. Converting shots at a rate of 16.3 percent has certainly given Stewart a lift this campaign.

Stewart dished out a pair of helpers in Thursday's 5-1 win over Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

Both of Stewart's assists came on goals by Nino Niederreiter, who snapped a 16-game drought in this one. Stewart came in with just two points in his previous 14 games, but his Tuesday fight against Tom Wilson seems to have lit a fire under the skilled fourth-liner.

Stewart logged just 6:58 of ice time during Thursday's loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

At this stage of his career, Stewart's fantasy value is tied to his contributions in the PIM column. He received a fighting major in each of his previous two outings, and with 89 PIM for the year, the veteran is doing his part there. However, in most seasonal leagues, it's difficult to roster him because of his lack of offensive production (13 goals and 19 points). Still, if you need a boost in PIM down the stretch drive, Stewart is a potential grab.

Stewart potted his eighth goal of the season in Saturday's 5-4 win against the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart bagged five goals in December, but he was scoreless in five games in January until Saturday's tally. He is a cheap source of penalty minutes for fantasy owners in deeper leagues, but don't expect much in the way of offensive production.

Stewart scored a first-period goal during Friday's loss to Calgary to snap a 15-game goalless drought.

EDGE Analysis

With just three goals and six points through 23 games, there isn't a lot to like about Stewart's fantasy upside. He entered Friday's game averaging just 10:52 of ice time per night and played only 7:29 against the Flames. Stewart is a desperation fantasy asset at this stage.

Stewart has no points and no shots on goal in his last four games and could be headed to the bench, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "Not enough. We need something out of him," head coach Bruce Boudreau said.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart could be a healthy scratch when Zach Parise returns from a foot injury as early as next week.

Stewart (illness) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart missed Monday's practice because of the illness, but indicated he's feeling healthy enough to give it a go Tuesday evening. He should slot into the third line alongside Nino Niederreiter and Tyler Graovac, looking to add to his five points through nine games this season in limited ice time.

Stewart missed practice Monday due to illness.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Bruce Boudreau did not expend on whether or not Stewart would be available Tuesday against Buffalo. The 29-year-old has had a strong start to the season as he's logged five points through nine games, including one on the man advantage. If the winger is unable to go, Jason Pominville would be the most likely replacement on the right of Minnesota's third line.
