WHAT TOOK SO LONG?!!!!! Whatever. Doesn't matter. Stewie is OFFICIALLY staying!

Canadiens General Manager Bob Gainey announced Monday the signing of forward Gregory Stewart to a one-year contract (2009-10). As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Last season, Stewart took part in 17 of the Canadiens’ final 25 regular-season contests after being recalled from the Hamilton Bulldogs on February 17. In 2008-09, the 23-year-old registered one point (1 assist) with 32 penalty minutes and averaged 8:36 of ice time in 20 contests with Montreal. He also scored 17 points (7 goals, 10 assists) and posted a plus-8 rating while leading the Hamilton Bulldogs with 170 penalty minutes in 51 AHL games. Stewart skated in two NHL (Canadiens) and two AHL (Hamilton) playoff games in 2008-09.

In 2007-08, in his first AHL campaign, Stewart amassed 17 points (10 goals, 7 assists) and served 137 penalty minutes in 69 games with Hamilton. The 6-2, 200-pound right-winger completed the season by making his NHL debut with the Canadiens on April 5, 2008.

Born in Kitchener, Ontario, Stewart was selected in the eighth round by the Canadiens, 246th overall, at the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
