Before being appointed the Coventry Blaze Head Coach in 2016, Danny previously spent four seasons with the club as a player between 2006 and 2010 winning the Elite League Championship on three occasions, including back-to-back successes whilst also adding a Challenge Cup and Knock-Out Cup.

In 2018, after taking on additional responsibility for the on-ice side of the club, Danny's significant efforts were rewarded with the role of Director of Hockey, in addition to his Head Coaching role.

 

 

He spent his college years at Miami University in the NCAA (1999-2003) before turning professional with the Fort Wayne Komets in the UHL. There he would stay for two full seasons prior to being drafted to the Danbury Trashers in 2005.

As the Trashers disbanded in 2006, Stewart made the move to Coventry where after enjoying four years of significant success he accepted the role to become player/coach of the now defunct Newcastle Vipers. During his year in the North East, the Fort McMurray, Canada native guided his team to the Challenge Cup Semi-Finals and was named Elite League Coach of the Year despite the off-ice struggles of the organisation.

 

 

The now 39-year-old, then headed further North, this time to the Fife Flyers where for five seasons in the position of player/assistant and then associate coach he helped establish the Scottish side as a recognised force in the Elite League.
