According to Andrew Hirsch of Sun Belt Hockey, the Nashville Predators have activated Viktor Stalberg off of injured reserve and he will make his debut in gold tonight.
Stalberg signed in Music City on the first day of this past summer’s free agency period in an effort to become a true top six forward. For the past three years, the 27-year old winger has been buried on a Chicago Blackhawks roster than features Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp. Despite that, Stalberg is a former 43-point scorer and even tallied 23 points in the lockout shortened 2013 campaign.
The Goteberg, Sweden, native was injured in the home pre-season finale and was expected to miss 3-4 weeks. Instead, he’s missed just four games. In those four games, the Predators have scored just six goals, three of which coming in the same period.

NASHVILLE After playing nine seasons with the Nashville Predators, Kevin Klein is someone who holds a pretty good perspective on his fellow defensemen.
He was drafted by the organization the same year as Shea Weber and Ryan Suter, both of whom earned All-Star status in Suters final season with the organization in 2011-12. Generally, around the NHL, the consensus was that Weber...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Seth Jones scored his first NHL goal and the Nashville Predators edged the New York Islanders 3-2 on Saturday night.
Nashville has won two of three. The Islanders were beaten for the third time in four games -- including twice in two days.
Patric Hornqvist and Ryan Ellis had the other Nashville goals. Frans Nielsen and John Tavares scored for New York.
When the Nashville Predators were granted the fourth overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, they never imagined they’d get the top player on their board. That top player was defenseman Seth Jones. Low and behold, the Colorado Avalanche, Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning all opted for forwards and there was Jones, sitting there for the taking when the Predators took the stage...

Puck possession, quality shots, strong goaltending, it’s all there for the Nashville Predators. Yet, after a 4-0 blanking against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night, the Predators had to find a way to get the puck into the net.
One of the NHL’s lowest-scoring teams in the early part of the season, the players and coaching staff can point the finger at any number of things...
Bouncing back after a devastating 4-0 loss Thursday night to the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Nashville Predators defeated the New York Islanders by a score of 3-2 -- the "Predator type of win" according to general manager David Poile.
Yet again, Nashville's puck possession was dominant, holding the Islanders to 9:52 in before they fired their first shot on net. However...
The Nashville Predators hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs for just the fifth time in their history on Thursday. They also hosted goaltender Jonathan Bernier for the fourth time and, for the fourth time, he beat them.
In front of 16,671 at Bridgestone Arena, the Leafs came away with a 4-0 victory. The score doesn’t suggest it but Pekka Rinne was outstanding. He collected 22 saves,...
from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
- Didn’t understand why Steve Yzerman passed on Seth Jones last June. Understand it less now. Jones is playing 23 minutes a game in Nashville on defence — and doesn’t Tampa Bay need defencemen? — and Yzerman’s pick, Jonathan Drouin is playing those minutes for Halifax of the Quebec junior league.
- When the reportorial silliness...
