Stewart cut from Comets camp, sent down to the Alaska Aces of the ECHL.

 

Ouch.

No surprise there but yeah, it's never fun getting cut.

 

However, any pain Stewart is feeling after being cut can't come close to how several other Utica Ds would feel if they were cut in favour of keeping Stewart on the Comets roster.

 

He's just not a good prospect. And Utica wouldn't be a good team if Stewart could crack their roster right now.

 

Not saying he's a complete bust. If Stewart can still develop a bit and eventually elevate his game to something approaching "replacement level" he might yet manage to eke out a decent enough living in pro hockey due to his size and toughness (although the need for carrying these player types on rosters is definitely trending down).

Keep working on your game Mckenzie! You have a huge upside with your size and physicality. Everyone is rooting for you to make it to the big club. Forget the fighting, focus on the fundamentals of hockey and master the little things. If you work hard enough you can earn a spot in the NHL. Repetition is key! Best of luck

MacStew called up today.  I only had to go back 5 pages to find this thread.  Desperate times call for desperate measures!

Hope the kid goes Ray Bork-alov mode!

Little disappointed that he never turned out. Liked what I saw from him from that one prospects scrimmage, and liked his play at last year's prospects tourney.
