This year, he's had a couple of good games already, though he's 9th in minutes among forwards and hasn't been all THAT impactful. Obviously, the Blues are deep so it doesn't mean the same thing to be the 9th forward in minutes on the Blues as it does with, say, Columbus. Still, we're going to have to wait and see how this season unfolds. Too early to say how his season will go.
Stewarts 2 fights most likely cut in to his ice time so he would most likely being sitting at #8 in TOI among forwards just behind Tarasenko who is #7 among forwards in TOI. Which i think we all agree Tarasenko is playing well.
