(HockeyStL) -- It was a milestone night for St. Louis Blues forward Chris Stewart in a 3-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday.
Chris Stewart scored his 100th career goal on a deflection from a shot by Jordan Leopold in the first period with the Blues on the power play.
In the second period, Stewart added an assist, the 100th of his career, on a goal scored by Andy McDonald. It also marked his 200th career point in 317 games played in the NHL.
“Obviously it’s something I’ve known for a couple of days now and I think not a better team to get it against than the Avalanche. I played there for a few years so it almost seems fitting,” Stewart said.
Colorado selected Stewart with the 18th overall pick in the 2006 NHL Draft. In 2011, the Blues would trade for Stewart, as well as Kevin Shattenkirk and a draft pick, in a deal that sent Erik Johnson, Jay McClement and a 2011 conditional first round pick to the Avalanche.
Stewart has 87 points (48 goals, 39 assists) in 151 games played as a Blue.
