Colin Stuart (born July 8, 1982) is an American professional ice hockey winger who currently plays for the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League (AHL). He has formerly played with the Buffalo Sabres and Atlanta Trashers. He is the older brother of Winnipeg Jets defenseman, Mark Stuart.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Stuart was drafted in the NHL by the Atlanta Thrashers with the 135th pick in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft from Colorado College. He joined the Thrashers organization in 2004 and was assigned to the American Hockey League's Chicago Wolves as well as playing five games for the ECHL's Gwinnett Gladiators. After two more seasons with the Wolves, Stuart made his NHL debut during the 2007–08 NHL season, playing 18 games and scoring 3 goals. He returned to the Wolves shortly afterwards and won the Calder Cup.

On July 1, 2009 Stuart was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs along with Garnet Exelby for Pavel Kubina and the rights to Tim Stapleton. He was then shipped to the Calgary Flames on July 27, 2009 in the trade that brought Wayne Primeau to Toronto.

On July 7, 2011, Stuart resigned with the Buffalo Sabres on a one-year contract.[2]

On September 18, 2012, Stuart left North America as a free agent to sign with the Iserlohn Roosters in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga for one-year.[3] During the 2012–13 season, Stuart established himself amongst the Roosters leadership group, and contributed with 21 points in 45 games.

On July 25, 2013, Stuart opted to return to the NHL and signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Vancouver Canucks.[4]
