Team: Dean Stewart

Fantasy Summary

A solid defenseman who could be a serviceable pro, he doesn’t offer a lot expect in deep fantasy leagues that count hits and blocked shots.

September 2021- Stewart has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Manitoba Moose. He had an excellent rookie campaign for the Wichita Thunder, which will retain his ECHL rights. Stewart was named to the ECHL All-Rookie Team, All-ECHL Second Team and finished second for ECHL Rookie of the Year. He also was named Wichita’s Defenseman of the Year. Stewart finished the season with 36 points (6 goals, 30 assists), leading all rookies in assists and was second in plus/minus with a plus -22. Keith Duggan

May 2020- The Coyotes have announced they will not be signing Stewart and he is now a free agent. Keith Duggan

May 2020- After four solid years at Nebraska-Omaha, Stewart moves on to the pro ranks. Consistently a good defensive player who was a leader for his team, year after year he played big minutes for Omaha. Stewart skates and moves the puck fine, there just isn’t a lot of “wow” factor to his game. He had 45 points in 130 games in college, including two goals and 12 points as a senior. Solid but unspectacular numbers. He could be a solid pro but fantasy wise doesn’t look to be a big producer except in deep leagues that count hits and blocked shots. Keith Duggan
