Brad Stuart
Sweater #: 7
Position: Defense
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 210
Shoots: Left
Birthdate: November 6, 1979
Birthplace: Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, Canada
Acquired: Drafted in 1998 (1st Round, 3rd Overall)

The Sharks took Brad with their first pick in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft and decided to let him season his game with an additional year in junior hocky in 1998-99. After playing half a season with the Regina Pats he was traded to the Calgary Hitmen (WHL) so that he could get some playoff experience under his belt. He eventually would lead Calgary to the WHL championship.

Brad represented Canada at the 1999 World Junior Championships in Winnipeg (silver medal).

He was not expected to crack the Sharks roster in 1999, but a strong training camp elevated him to the opening night roster in October. He would turn in an outstanding rookie season, playing in all 82 regular season games and all twelve Sharks playoff games during the 1999-2000 season.

He was 7th in scoring among rookies (1st among rookie defensemen), tallying 10 goals and 26 assists. His steady play at the blueline distinguished him as the top defensive rookie in his class. He finished second in voting for the 2000 Calder Trophy, behind Scott Gomez of New Jersey.

Brad turned in a solid sophomore season, playing in 77 games and tallying 23 points on 5 goals and 18 assists.
Brad established himself as a solid defenseman during his rookie season with consistent play on defense, and a knack for the net. Don't look for him to make rookie mistakes too often. He understands the game well and plays positional hockey.

He recorded a 95 mph shot at the Top Prospects Skills Competion in 1998, so look for him to rocket the puck on occassion. Not afraid to go to the net, and will jump from the blueline from time to time.
