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.

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.

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.

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.

Stuart Nets Game-Winner For Sharks

News: Brad Stuart scored on one of his five shots in 17:49 of ice time in Tuesday's win over Toronto.
Analysis: That's Brad Stuart's third of the season (that's three more than he scored in 48 games last season) and oddly all three are game-winners. If you're playing Stuart, you should be pleasantly surprised by the offensive production this season. Don't bet on there being lots more though.

Sharks' Stuart Nets OT Winner

News: Brad Stuart's first goal of the year was the overtime winner Tuesday in Calgary.
Analysis: The stay-at-home defender doesn't generally contribute a lot of offense -- this was his first goal since the 2011-12 season. Brad Stuart's value typically lies in his stalwart defensive play and physicality.

Sharks' Stuart Gets First Point Of Season

News: Brad Stuart recorded his first point of the season, an assist, in Saturday's win over Calgary.
Analysis: Brad Stuart has little fantasy value, as he's a stay-at-home defenseman. He finished last season with six points in 48 games. Don't expect much more than that from him.

Sharks' Stuart Set To Return From Suspension

News: Brad Stuart (suspension) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Stars, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: With his three game suspension over, Brad Stuart will get the honor of filling in for the injured Dan Boyle, and is expected to be paired with Matt Irwin on the blue line. Stuart hasn't scored a goal since coming over to the Sharks before last season after five years with the Red Wings.

Sharks' Stuart Gets Three-Game Ban

News: Brad Stuart will receive a three-game suspension for his hit to the head on the Rangers' Rick Nash in Tuesday's win, the New York Post's Larry Brooks reports.
Analysis: Nash left the game with a head injury after taking the hit from Brad Stuart, which likely weighed heavily into the commissioner office's decision to suspend Stuart. Scott Hannan should be active over the next three contests to fill Stuart's spot in the lineup.

Sharks' Stuart Faces Hearing For Hit

News: Brad Stuart, who returned from injury Tuesday, will face a hearing with the Department of Player Safety Wednesday for a hit on the Rangers Rick Nash, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: The hit, which ultimately took Nash out of the game, could leave the Sharks and fantasy owners on another short stretch without Brad Stuart. His return to action was solid for the Sharks, but nothing to write home about for fantasy owners.

Sharks' Stuart To Return Tuesday

News: Brad Stuart (lower body) will return to the lineup for the Sharks on Tuesday, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart will make his season debut and will provide a nice boost for the Sharks' defense. He did not net any goals in 48 games last season with the Sharks and totaled 25 penalty minutes. His debut this season will be on home ice against the Rangers.

Sharks' Stuart Remains Out Saturday

News: Brad Stuart (lower body) will miss Saturday's game against the Coyotes, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: With Brad Stuart unavailable, Justin Braun and Scott Hannan will continue to see work as the Sharks' third defensive pairing. It's unclear how much more time Stuart will miss as a result of the injury, but if it lingers into next week, there's a chance he could be placed on IR.

Sharks' Stuart To Sit Out Opener

News: Brad Stuart (lower body) will not play in Thursday's opener against the Canucks, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: It originally looked as though Brad Stuart's status would come down to a game-time decision, but coach Todd McLellan elected to preemptively scratch the blueliner with his lower body injury still presenting problems. The Sharks expect to have him available in the near future.

Sharks' Stuart Likely A Game-Time Decision Thursday

News: Brad Stuart (lower body) will likely be a game-time decision for Thursday's opener against the Canucks, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart has been skating with the team the past few days, but coach Todd McLellan still isn't certain whether or not the defenseman has gotten enough ice time in to be ready to take on the Canucks. Either way, it looks like Stuart is at least making progress and appears in little danger of missing extensive game action.

Sharks' Stuart Hopes To Suit Up Opening Night

News: Brad Stuart (lower body) is optimistic about his chances of being available for the Oct. 3 opener against the Canucks, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart hasn't suited up in any preseason games thus far due to the lower-body injury and will be sidelined for the Sharks' weekend contests, but that hasn't dampened his outlook for the opener. He believes that if he skates well over the next four or five days, it will be enough to convince the Sharks to keep him active to start the regular season. It's unclear if the Sharks' front office is willing to exercise as much patience with final roster cuts due Monday afternoon.

San Jose's Stuart May Not Be Ready For Opener

News: Despite earlier assertions that Brad Stuart would be ready, Coach Todd McLellan has backed off that statement. He said Monday that Stuart has healed but needs to do "all the stuff he didn't get to do for the last month," the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Brad Stuart's absence will have an impact on fantasy, but he's a vital member of the Sharks' defensive corps. If he's replaced by Matt Tennyson for any extended period of time — which currently sounds unlikely — it could make life a little harder for goalkeeper Antii Niemi.
