Avs' Stuart Sets Up Goal, Lays Eight Hits In Win

News: Brad Stuart set up one of five Avalanche goals and racked up eight hits in Thursday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: The 35-year-old Brad Stuart can't be counted on to provide scoring of any kind with much regularity, but he remains something of an asset in specialty formats. Over the last four games alone, Stuart has accrued 24 hits and 10 blocked shots, and has 147 and 116 in those respective categories over 54 games this season.

Avs' Stuart Assists In Win

News: Brad Stuart earned an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Brad Stuart is quite proficient when it comes to gathering hits and blocks, but offense is significantly more scarce for the stay-at-home defenseman. He only has one goal and seven assists over 40 games on the season.

Avs' Stuart Scores Rare Goal

News: Brad Stuart scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: He only scored three last year and none the year before, which should give you an idea of what to expect from Brad Stuart offensively. Don't pay this goal much mind.

Two More Points For Avs' Stuart

News: Brad Stuart grabbed two helpers in Wednesday's 4-3 OT win over the visiting Flyers.
Analysis: The second assist was by far the most important, as he and fellow rearguard Tyson Barrie controlled the puck in Philly's end before Barrie dished it to Ryan O'Reilly for the game winner with 20 seconds remaining in overtime. The 35-year-old now has four points in 21 games this year -- all of which have come in the last four games -- but the fact that he hasn't recorded more than 23 points in the last eight seasons makes us believe that his mini outburst is more of an aberration than a sign of things to come.

Avs' Stuart Assists Twice Tuesday

News: Brad Stuart picked up two assists in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Blues.
Analysis: The two helpers marked the first points in 18 games on the season for Brad Stuart, who offers his most value to the Avalanche on his own end of the ice. The 35-year-old blueliner won't blow you away with his hit or block totals either, making him mostly a non-entity in the fantasy game.

Avs' Stuart Activated From IR

News: Brad Stuart (hamstring) was activated from injured reserve Sunday.
Analysis: Brad Stuart's activation presumably indicates that he'll be ready to go for Thursday's game in Pittsburgh. If he does indeed suit up, it will mark the 1,000th career game for Stuart, who has been sidelined since Nov. 4 with the hamstring issue.

Avs' Stuart Skates With Team Friday

News: Brad Stuart (hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart appeared to be nearing a return to action as November came to a close, but endured some kind of setback that delayed those plans. After taking some time off the ice, it appears Stuart has noticed some improvement with his hamstring, and could only need an additional practice or two before the Avalanche activate him.

Avs' Stuart Considered Day-To-Day

News: The Avs are considering Brad Stuart (hamstring) day-to-day at this point.
Analysis: Brad Stuart was moved to injured reserve Friday, but that was strictly procedural, as a rash of injuries to the Avs' forward ranks forced them to recall a trio of players from the minors. It's not clear what Stuart's on-ice activity has been like of late, but the day-to-day tag would seem to imply that he's nearing a return.

Brad Stuart

Avs Move Stuart To IR

News: Brad Stuart (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Analysis: Injuries suffered by Alex Tanguay (facial fracture) and Dennis Everberg (separated shoulder) will prompt the Avalanche to make a few call-ups, so Brad Stuart will move to IR to open up a roster spot. The blueliner is still limited by a hamstring issue and it's not clear when he might return to the ice.

Avs' Stuart Could Miss A Couple Of Weeks

News: Brad Stuart is dealing with a hamstring issue and could be out for a couple of weeks, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart is just one game away from making his 1,000th NHL appearance, but it appears that reaching that milestone could be pushed back for quite some time. The Avalanche have yet to make any blue line call-up to cover for his absence, as it appears the team will wait a few days before determining whether or not Stuart will require a trip to injured reserve.

Avs' Stuart Could Miss Time With Leg Injury

News: Brad Stuart could miss some time due to a leg injury he suffered in Tuesday's game, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart's status and timetable are still a little cloudy right now, but should be resolved in the future. With him out, Zach Redmond will likely slot in as the sixth defenseman, though the team could make a move to add another for depth.

Avs Extend Stuart

News: The Avalanche signed Brad Stuart to a two-year, $7.2 million contract extension Monday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Analysis: The veteran blueliner recorded three goals and eight assists in 61 games with the Sharks last season, and the Avs decided he was worth locking up for two more.

Stuart Traded To Colorado

News: The Avalanche have acquired Brad Stuart from the Sharks for a second-round pick in 2016, along with a sixth-rounder in 2017, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The 34-year-old blueliner brings limited offense to the table these days (11 points in 61 games this past season), but he'll provide the Avs' blueline with valuable depth and experience.

Stuart Returns In Sharks' Loss

News: Brad Stuart returned from injury on Monday, recording a shot, a hit and two blocked shots over 19:57 of ice time in a shootout loss to Calgary.
Analysis: Brad Stuart's return is good news for Sharks fans and a mixed bag for fantasy owners. His numbers have been rough in many categories this season. Averaging barely over a shot per game, under two hits per game, and just 19:10 of ice time, he's not a standout in many fantasy categories.

Sharks' Stuart Rejoining Lineup Monday

News: Brad Stuart (upper body) will be back in the lineup Monday against the Flames, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: It will mark Brad Stuart's first game since Feb. 7, as he suffered the upper-body injury prior to play resuming after the Olympic break. He totaled just nine points in his 51 games before the injury, but was productive in the defensive categories, logging 100 hits and 101 blocked shots.

SJ's Stuart Will Not Play Saturday

News: Brad Stuart (upper body) will not return to the lineup on Saturday as had been earlier speculated, according to the Mercury News.
Analysis: The Sharks won't put Brad Stuart into the lineup until their positive he's at 100 percent.They want him ready for the playoffs and players coming back too early may be on their mind with Raffi Torres' situation.

Stuart Nearing A Return For Sharks

News: Brad Stuart (upper body) may return as soon as Saturday, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: Brad Stuart has been out of the lineup since February 7, the final game before the Olympic break. His injury was originally considered minor and has lingered for over a month. He has three goals and six assists on the season.

Stuart Skates With Sharks, Won't Return Yet

News: Brad Stuart was skating with the team on Tuesday, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.
Analysis: This is progress, but doesn't mean he's close to a return. With the Sharks poised to make a good run in the playoffs they won't rush him into a return.

Sharks' Stuart Not Close To Returning

News: Brad Stuart (upper body) is not close to returning, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart still isn't participating in contact drills at practice, although head coach Todd McLellan did say that he is continuing to work on his conditioning. The blueliner hasn't suited up since Feb. 7, but recorded three goals and six assists before getting hurt.

Stuart Still Out For Sharks

News: Brad Stuart will miss his sixth straight game with an upper-body injury Saturday, according to CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: Brad Stuart was initially projected to miss just three games, which makes the situation a little hard to read. He does appear to be getting close to a return however, as he began skating again mid-week.

Sharks' Stuart Resumes Skating Wednesday

News: Brad Stuart (upper body) skated during Wednesday's practice, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart was reportedly working out rather aggressively, suggesting a return to action could be on the horizon. He's missed the team's first four games out of the break while he attends to the injury.

Sharks' Stuart Moved To IR

News: Brad Stuart (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: This doesn't speak to any setback for Brad Stuart, as the Sharks just needed the roster space to activate Logan Couture and Raffi Torres from IR for Thursday's game. Stuart is still expected to miss the next three contests before the Sharks reevaluate him.

Sharks' Stuart Out Next Three Games

News: Brad Stuart is nursing an upper-body injury and will not travel with the Sharks during their upcoming three-game road trip, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart suffered the injury during the Sharks' final game before the break and will attempt to recuperate in San Jose during the road trip. Expect Matt Tennyson to serve as the team's seventh defenseman while either Jason Demers or Matt Irwin fills Stuart's spot on the second pairing with Justin Braun.

Sharks' Stuart A Steady Player

News: Brad Stuart has three goals and six assists in 51 games this season.
Analysis: Brad Stuart didn't score in the nine games leading up to the Olympic break, and will likely be counted on much more for his solid defensive play than for any offensive production when NHL games resume.

Stuart's Contributions Big In Sharks Win

News: With an assist, a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, a shot, a hit, and two blocked shots, Brad Stuart has numbers all over the board in Thursday's win over Florida.
Analysis: Brad Stuart's performances have fluctuated wildly all year, but he's come up big for the Sharks when they need him. Nonetheless, he's a defensive-minded defenseman and his fantasy value has a low ceiling.
