Playing career Edit
Stuart was drafted in the first round, 3rd overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft by the San Jose Sharks. In a game against the Los Angeles Kings on April 4, 2004, Stuart scored twice in a 17-second span, forcing the game into overtime at a 3-3 tie. The San Jose Sharks went on to win 4-3. Stuart's feat is the fastest that a Sharks player has scored two goals.
On February 10, 2007, he was traded to the Calgary Flames along with Wayne Primeau in exchange for Andrew Ference and Chuck Kobasew. Boston General Manager Peter Chiarelli cited his inability to agree on a new contract with Stuart, who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2006–07 NHL season, as a reason for the deal.
The Kings traded Stuart to the Detroit Red Wings on February 26, 2008 for a second round draft pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and a fourth round draft pick in 2009. On June 4, 2008, Stuart won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Red Wings where he saw time as a top-4 defenceman paired with Niklas Kronwall.
Stuart was an unrestricted free agent after the 2007–08 NHL season and on July 1, 2008, he resigned with the Detroit Red Wings for $15 million over 4 years. Stuart returned to his home town of Rocky Mountain House on August 17, 2008 with the Stanley Cup to share his celebration with those that supported him.
Stuart played in 67 games during the 2008-09 NHL Season, scoring two goals to go with 13 assists as the Red Wings came within one game of repeating as Stanley Cup Champions.
