In 55 games with the Jets this season, Stuart has scored one goal and tallied two assists. 

He logged just under 11 minutes of ice time in the Jets' 2-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers Saturday night.

Adam Pardy will replace Stuart in the Jets' lineup on Tuesday night, per head coach Paul Maurice. 

A veteran of 622 games, Stuart owns 24 career NHL goals and 89 points. 

The 31-year-old is signed through the 2017-18 season.
