    Avalanche's Brad Stuart: Nearing a return

    Stuart (back) is close to returning, per Avalanche coach Patrick Roy. The 36-year-old blueliner has not played since Nov. 10. He's a veteran shutdown man that skates well and tends to glue himself to opponents, but with just 335 points in 1056 career games, he can safely be passed over in fantasy leagues.

    Avalanche's Brad Stuart: Returns to Denver

    Stuart returned to Denver due to some back issues, Drew Spevak of ESPN Denver reports. Stuart has yet to collect a point through six games this season, posting a minus-2 rating over that period. The Avalanche recalled Zach Redmond to serve as the team's seventh defensemen on the current road trip. However, the Avalanche don't return home until Nov. 25 against the Senators, so it's possible Stuart will rejoin the team at some point should his back feel better.
