Anthony Stewart Life

Anthony Stewart (born January 5, 1985) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player.

He was born in Quebec and his family moved to Toronto as a child.

Stewart played minor hockey in Toronto and captured three all-Ontario championships.

He was first selected by the Kingston Frontenacs in the first round of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) draft after his minor hockey career.

He was drafted by the Florida Panthers in the first round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, finishing at 25th overall after two seasons with Kingston.

After four years in the Panthers' system, dividing his time between the NHL and the American Hockey League (AHL).

The Thrashers did not have a new deal when he was transferred to Winnipeg to become the new Winnipeg Jets, and he continued to play for the Carolina Hurricanes as a free agent.

After a season in Carolina, he was traded to the Kings, but the bulk of the season was spent in the minor leagues.

He signed a professional tryout contract with the San Jose Sharks to begin the 2013-14 NHL season, but he wasn't given a contract.

He then signed with Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg in the KHL.

Chris' younger brother Chris also played in the NHL and is currently a Philadelphia Flyers training camp invitee. Stewart has represented Canada in two World Junior Championships and twice in the ADT Canada-Russia Challenge.

When Team Canada defeated the World U18 Championships, he was the leading goal scorer.

Stewart tied for the tournament points lead in the 2004 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, in which Canada earned a silver medal.

He was instrumental in Team Canada's gold medal in the 2005 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.

Stewart, the OHL representative in the Ottawa-Russia Challenge, helped his team win both tournaments (4–0), helping Canada defeat the Challenge for the second year in a row.

Early life

Stewart was born in LaSalle, Quebec, in 1985, the first of seven children of Norman and Sue Stewart. Norman immigrated from Jamaica in 1974, working mostly seasonal jobs, such as landscaping or building, and Sue was a stay-at-home mother. The family moved to Toronto the year after Stewart's birth. They were evicted from their house and relocated to a subsidized shelter in Scarborough's "rough" neighborhood during his childhood. Stewart began skating at the age of four and played hockey at five. He would often walk with his father to hockey games and practices as a young hockey player. On one occasion, the two were walking in a blizzard when they were picked up by Bob Ziemendorf, a fellow hockey parent who was driving his child to the same place. After the game, Ziemendorf brought them home, and from there on, he gave them lifts and helped them with the cost of hockey and groceries. Stewart took over Ziemendorf and his family for more than a year and a half during a difficult time for the family. Stewart later said he felt that without this support, he may not have qualified to play in the NHL.

Anthony Stewart Career

Playing career

Stewart played minor hockey for the North York Canadians. He played so well that the cost of his hockey was subsidized personally by the head of the organization. With Stewart on the team, the North York Canadians won three all-Ontario championships. He played in the 1999 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with North York. After finishing his minor hockey career, Stewart was selected by the Kingston Frontenacs in the first round of the OHL draft. In his first season in the OHL, he scored 19 goals and 43 points, and in the 2002–03 season he increased his tally to 38 goals and 70 points, then added seven more points in five playoff games. In the off-season, Stewart was named captain of the Frontenacs and was drafted in the first round of the NHL draft. Going into the 2003 NHL entry draft, he was rated as the 19th best prospect among North American skaters. With their second first round draft pick, the 25th overall, the Florida Panthers selected him. While the Frontenacs missed the playoffs the following season, Stewart scored a career high 35 goals. He attended the Panthers' training camp prior to the start of the 2004–05 OHL season. He performed impressively there but was sent back to Kingston to help his growth as a player. In his last OHL season, he led the Frontenacs' scoring with 67 points. After the Frontenacs failed to make the playoffs for the second consecutive year, Stewart made his professional debut, playing 10 games for the AHL team San Antonio Rampage, during which he scored a goal and two assists.

Stewart began the 2005–06 season in the AHL with the Rochester Americans. After four games he was called up by the Panthers, making his NHL debut on October 18, 2005, against New Jersey. During the game, he recorded his first NHL career point, an assist. Two days later he recorded the first NHL goal of his career, against Washington Capitals' goaltender Olaf Kolzig. He played ten games, scoring two goals and three points, before injuring his wrist when he crashed into the boards after a check by Carolina Hurricanes' defenceman Mike Commodore. The injury required surgery and ended Stewart's season. The following year was spent mainly in the AHL, playing in 62 games and registering 13 goals and 27 points. Stewart appeared in ten games with the Panthers, registering just one assist. In the 2007–08 season he spent more time in the NHL, playing in 26 games for Florida and again only registering one assist. While in the AHL, he played against his brother Chris, then a member of the Lake Erie Monsters. It was the first time they had faced each other in an organized hockey game. Anthony scored a goal and an assist in the game, and Rochester defeated Lake Erie 3–2. He finished the season with 31 points from 54 games. In the 2008–09 NHL season, for the first time in his career, Stewart played no games in the minor leagues. He played in 59 games for the Panthers, scoring 2 goals and 7 points.

In the off-season Stewart left the Panthers as a free agent and signed with the Atlanta Thrashers. After the 2009 pre-season he was assigned to the Thrashers' AHL affiliate, the Chicago Wolves. In his first year with them, he achieved AHL career highs in games played (77) and assists (19), and equalled his career high in points (31). Stewart played the entire 2010–11 season with the Thrashers, scoring his first career hat-trick in a game against the Anaheim Ducks. His third goal tied the game 4–4, and the Thrashers went on to win the game in a shootout. In that season Stewart set both NHL career highs and professional career highs in games played and in every major offensive statistical category.

When the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg, the Winnipeg Jets opted not to submit a qualifying offer for Stewart, making him an unrestricted free agent. He signed a two-year, US$1.8 million contract with the Carolina Hurricanes on July 2, 2011. After the first 50 games with the Hurricanes Stewart recorded 6 goals and 13 points, while playing mostly on the fourth line. Despite leading the team with a +4 rating Carolina placed him on waivers. He cleared waivers the following day and remained with the team. He finished the year with 9 goals and 20 points in 77 games, while his plus-minus rating fell to -2.

Prior to the start of the 2012–13 season the NHL enforced a lockout. Three weeks into the labor dispute Stewart signed with the Nottingham Panthers of the Elite Ice Hockey League in the United Kingdom. Stewart stated that he signed with the team as a way of staying in game shape. He played 19 games for Nottingham recording 11 points. Upon the conclusion of the lockout Carolina traded Stewart to the Los Angeles Kings, along with two draft picks in exchange for Kevin Westgarth. Los Angeles did not play Stewart in their opening game and placed him on waivers prior to their next game. Stewart cleared waivers and was assigned to the Kings minor league affiliate the Manchester Monarchs. The move allowed the Kings to activate Anze Kopitar off of their non-roster list.

In the 2013–14 season, Stewart initially signed a one-year contract with Russian club, Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg of the KHL. In failing to establish himself within Avtomobilist, scoring just 1 goals in 19 games, Stewart was mutually released from his contract to join Swiss club, HC Fribourg-Gottéron of the National League A, on a monthly basis contract on December 16, 2013. Stewart contributed with 8 points in 12 games, before he continued his unsettled season, joining his third club and NLA strugglers, Rapperswil-Jona Lakers in a brief stint to end the year.

On August 4, 2014, Stewart returned for another attempt in the KHL, signing a trial contract as a free agent with Croatian club, KHL Medveščak Zagreb. He was released from his try-out after 12 games with the club on October 14, 2014.

Rangers 2-1 Aberdeen: Rangers beat Celtic on Saturday in the Scottish League Cup final, and Sub Roofe seals the deal

www.dailymail.co.uk, January 15, 2023
Without showpiece days like this, Scottish football's fragile image will do fine. Rangers secured their 16th match against Celtic on a Hampden playing surface that was more suitable to agricultural production than a major cup semi-final. Kemar Roofe's first strike since April 14th came during a stretch of extra-time when the state of the play made passing the ball comprehensible as an act of handling a live hand grenade. When the video technology within Scotland's National Stadium malfunctioned for eight minutes, it gave the spectator a growing sense of shame. None of this was a good look.

After Anthony Stewart's suspected racial violence, Aberdeen investigates him

www.dailymail.co.uk, December 28, 2022
Aberdeen has condemned captain Anthony Stewart's suspected racial abuse as the Pittodrie club began to search for the individual responsible on Tuesday. Following his red card in the 3-1 loss away to St Mirren on Christmas Eve, the 30-year-old was targeted online following his red card. His tackle on Jonah Ayunga came at the price of a penalty and a red card. Stewart had already been chastised for a mistake ahead of Fashion Sakala's opening goal, as Rangers defeated Pittodrie 3-2 on December 20.

Aberdeen 2-3 Rangers: In a thrilling win for Rangers, Scott Arfield scores twice in injury time

www.dailymail.co.uk, December 20, 2022
JOHN McGARRY AT PITTODRIE: Asked when returning to Ibrox how his team could possibly sit at the top of the table come the end of this term, Michael Beale pointed to a simple equation. There may be no errors from his charges over the course of 23 games. Coupled with this, they'd need a favor from one of the Celtic teams. Beale's men are still holding their part of the contract after two games of his tenure. Could the Rangers' boss have reconsidered how that ended the case against Aberdeen? Never in his wildest dreams.
