Report: Blues are shopping Chris Stewart

ST. LOUIS, MO - DECEMBER 19: Chris Stewart #25 of the St. Louis Blues celebrates after scoring a goal against the Montreal Canadiens at the Scottrade Center on December 19, 2013 in St. Louis, Missouri. Getty Images

There’s a roster freeze in effect, so obviously no trades will be announced in the near future. That being said, once the Olympics are over, it won’t be long until the trade deadline and we might be in for some blockbusters.

One of the players whose name keeps coming up St. Louis’ Chris Stewart.

He’s a physical forward and a threat to score that would fit nicely on a lot of team’s second or third line. The Blues have been giving him just 13:39 minutes per contest this season though and have been offering him to teams around the league, according to the Ottawa Sun’s sources.

Some squads might balk at his $4.15 million annual cap hit through the 2014-15 campaign, but the Ottawa Senators are believed to be interested in his services. They have more than enough room, even if they don’t necessarily intend to spend to the ceiling. At 26, Stewart is also young enough to factor into Ottawa’s long-term plans as well as provide them with a boost during their current battle for a postseason spot.

They might not be the only team in the mix though. Earlier reports linked Stewart to the New York Rangers as part of a potential trade involving Ryan Callahan.
