BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Stewart, 27, will be a name familiar to Condors fans as he recorded one of the most prolific seasons for a Bakersfield netminder in team history. Assigned to the Condors from the National Hockey League’s Philadelphia Flyers during the 2010-11 season, Stewart went 18-5-0 in 26 appearances with the Condors compiling a 2.20 goals against average and a .929 save percentage. His strong regular season concluded with 10 consecutive victories during the month of March, a Condors record, and wins in 15 of his last 17 starts. The Burnaby, British Columbia native’s goals-against average is second all-time for a Condors goaltender in a single season and his save percentage led the ECHL that season. For his efforts, Stewart was named to the 2010-11 ECHL All-Rookie Team.
Last season, the 6’4", 195 lbs. goalie played 40 games for the Elmira Jackals and went 26-11-2 with a 2.56 GAA and a .917 save percentage leading the team to a regular season Eastern Conference title and the second round of the playoffs before being eliminated by the eventual Kelly Cup Champion Florida Everblades.
