The Blackhawks would go on to win the Stanley Cup that season, although Stanton did not qualify to have his name on the Stanley Cup.

After establishing himself in the NHL in his two seasons with the Canucks, on July 24, 2015, Stanton signed as a free agent to a one-year, two-way contract with the Washington Capitals.[4]

At the conclusion of the season and at the end of his contract with the Capitals he signed a one-year, two-way contract as a free agent to join the Colorado Avalanche.[5] After attending the Avalanche's training camp and participating in pre-season games, Stanton was assigned to the AHL to play with affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage.[6] Stanton made his Rampage and 2016–17 season debut in a 2-1 defeat against the Milwaukee Admirals on October 15, 2016.[7] On November 28, 2016, after 15 games with the Rampage, Stanton was dealt by the Avalanche to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Cody Goloubef.
