Stevenson was best served as a checking forward who could also contribute some offense once in a while and mix it up
with the best of them. A true product of the Western Hockey League, I would say.
He came to the Devils at the peak of the team's success and had a solid first season with the team, but fell short of
winning the Cup.
The following season saw him miss a lot of games due to a knee injury he suffered in Vancouver. He bounced back
nicely in 02-03, playing in nearly all the games and of course, winning the Cup.
He would sign with the Flyers the summer after they eliminated the Devils, but doesn't get to play a game for them until
the lockout was over in '05. Even then, he didn't play in many games because of a hip injury. The Flyers would buy
out his contract, and he would officially retire from the game in April, 2007.
He became an assistant coach for his junior team, the Seattle Thunderbirds, immediately after he retired. He would
stay with them until 2011. He was also an assistant for the Wenatchee Wild of the NAHL for a brief period. These
days, he's coaching at the youth level in the Seattle area.
