Sabres forward Chris Stewart is likely out for the season after suffering what's described as a lower body injury, according to a report Tuesday from Amy Moritz of The Buffalo News.

The news comes after Stewart played only two games with the club. On Feb. 28, the St. Louis Blues traded the 26-year-old to the Sabres, along with Jaroslav Halak, William Carrier, a first-round draft pick in 2015 and a conditional draft pick in 2016. In return, the Blues received Ryan Miller and Steve Ott.

Stewart had his right ankle in a boot at First Niagara Center this week and interim coach Ted Nolan said Stewart's prospects of playing again this season are slim, according to Mortiz.

"Stewart doesn't look good right now. There are only five weeks left in the year and his injury is four-to-five weeks."

Stewart has yet to record a point with Buffalo; with the Blues, he had 15 goals and 26 points in 58 games. Stewart has one year remaining on his contract.

The Sabres are currently 19-37 and last in the Atlantic Conference.
