Greg Stewart Joins Flyers

Updated: October 26, 2014

Former NHLer and Montreal Canadien Greg Stewart has reach a deal with the Gander Flyers.

stewart showed success at the junior level, playing for the Peterborough Petes of the OHL, accumulating over 80 points in three seasons. After a stint in the ECHL and AHL, Stewart cracked the Canadiens’ lineup in 2007-08 season, playing a single game before returning to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL. In 2008-10, Stewart played 25 games with the Habs before once again returning to the Bulldogs of the AHL, only to be traded to the Chicago Wolves and the Oklahoma City Barons.

At the senior level, Stewart competed for the Dundas Real McCoys, helping the team capture the Allan Cup, scoring 2 goals in 4 games in the tournament.

Standing 6’2″ tall and weighing in at 200 lbs, Stewart will be a tough player in front of the net. This move by the Gander Flyers goes against a trend being seen in the league for sleeker, faster players. However, Stewart has been known to turn on the jets and his skating skills are second to none.

As a power forward, look for Stewart to take his place in front of the net. He will be tough to move and is sure to become a goalie’s worst nightmare.

The Flyers have made the move after star forward Peter Campbell indicated he was unavailable to play this season. Stewart will definitely have some big shoes to fill in the lineup as Campbell was one of the most impressive players to suit up in the league last season.
