Stewart's story has taken him from Dorchester, MA to The Groton School to the Quakers of University of Pennsylvania.  From Cincinnati as a Stinger to Binghamton as a Duster.  From Quebec City as a Nordique and back to Boston as a rival and then a referee.

He has traveled and skated all over the World.  Stewart story has inspired many thousands.  He exudes Passion, Fire, and Commitment not only for the game of hockey but for life.

An avid historian, Stewart is a much sought after speakers in North America and Europe.  His philanthropic interest has been dedicated to the NHL's Hockey Fights Cancer Campaign and he has brought much needed money and awareness to many people who have listened to Paul speak.

His couragous battle with Stage 3 Colon Cancer (Duke's C) is not only a story of encouragement, but of near heartbreak as his diagnosis came only 12 hours after the birth of his first child.

In addition to playing in the NHL, Stewart became the first American born referee to officiate over 1,000 regular season games in his 17 year career. His career on the ice ended in 2003 after 28 years of trading elbows with some of the greats.
