The Nashville Predators announced through Twitter that forward Viktor Stalberg has a shoulder injury and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.
Stalberg skated gingerly to the bench early in Tuesday night’s pre-season win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. He did not return and Head Coach Barry Trotz mentioned in his post-game comments that the team would keep him out of the remainder of the pre-season. Now we know he’ll be held out longer.
If the Swedish winger is out for the full four weeks, he would make his debut in a Predators sweater during the two-game homestand against Winnipeg and St. Louis on October 24 and 26, respectively.
Stalberg signed a four-year, $12 million deal as a free agent on July 4. He won the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks last season and is being counted on to help Nashville’s offensive production. He scored 22 goals and 43 points in 79 games during the 2011-12 season and even managed 23 points in 43 games last year. Impressive numbers given he was buried under...
