Chris Stewart has signed on with Eispiraten Crimmischau of the second division German League.

Stewart will join fellow NHLer Wayne Simmonds on the team which should cruise to easy wins with two NHL players in the lineup. Stewart struggled last season, scoring only 15 goals and picking up 30 points after popping 28 goals and 53 points in 2010-11. He is expected to fight for a spot on the top two lines with top prospect Vladimir Tarasenko once the NHL returns to action.
