27 Comments

The Anaheim Ducks have inked winger Chris Stewart to a one-year contract worth $1.7 million, according to a report Saturday evening from John Shannon of Sportsnet.

The Ducks have yet to officially announce any deal for the 27-year-old Stewart.

It’s worth noting that enforcer Brian McGrattan announced his deal with the Ducks via Twitter well before the club did.

Stewart spent last season with the Buffalo Sabres and then the Minnesota Wild following the NHL trade deadline.

Stewart scored a combined 14 goals and 36 points last season with both the Sabres and Wild, and he also brings size on the wing at 6’2″ tall and 231 pounds and an element of toughness.
