On May 30, 2006, Greg signed a three-year entry level contract with the Canadiens.[1] Stewart made his professional debut in the 2006–07 playing the full season with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL.

In the 2007–08 season, Stewart was assigned to AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs, for the majority of the year posting 10 goals in 69 games. On April 2, 2008, he was recalled from the Bulldogs and played his first NHL game on April 5, 2008, in the last game of the regular season against the Toronto Maple Leafs.[2]

Demoted after 5 games with the Canadiens to the Bulldogs in the 2009–10 season. Appearing in 45 games with the Bulldogs for 10 points, Stewart was then loaned to the Chicago Wolves in exchange for Michael Vernace on March 10, 2010.[3]
