Chris Stewart is retiring after 11 seasons in the NHL, he announced Sunday.

The journeyman forward played for seven teams across 668 career NHL games. His most productive seasons came early in his career with the Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues when he notched back-to-back 28-goal campaigns in 2009-10 and 2010-11.

Stewart also had stints with the Buffalo Sabres, Minnesota Wild, Anaheim Ducks, and Calgary Flames before finishing with the Philadelphia Flyers. He wraps up his career with 160 goals and 162 assists.

The Avalanche drafted Stewart in the first round in 2006.

He's the brother of former NHL player and current Hockey Night in Canada analyst Anthony Stewart. Chris is also a member of the Hockey Diversity Alliance.
