The San Jose Sharks have invited veteran NHL forward Anthony Stewart to training camp on a professional try out, according to CSN Bay Area’s Kevin Kurz.
Stewart, 28, has appeared in over 250 NHL contests with the Panthers, Thrashers and Hurricanes, last appearing in 2011-12 with Carolina (when he scored 20 points in 77 games).
The older brother of St. Louis’ Chris Stewart, Anthony split last season between Nottingham of the Elite Ice Hockey League (United Kingdom) and Los Angeles’ AHL affiliate in Manchester.
He was acquired by the Kings prior to the start of the shortened season, but never made an appearance for the club.
The Sharks are hopeful Stewart can reclaim the form that made him the 25th overall pick in 2003, or the form that saw him score a career-high 14 goals and 39 points in 80 games for Atlanta in 2010-11.
