Nashville Predators assistant coach Kevin McCarthy believes bench boss Peter Laviolette can get more out of Viktor Stalberg and Colin Wilson.
"Guys like Stalberg and Wilson can learn from that offensive system that we use," McCarthy said. "It's basically a lot of hard work and precision and doing things at the right time. You need to have skill for that, and they certainly have it." Stalberg accounted for just eight goals and 18 points in 70 games in his first season with the Predators. Jun 2 - 12:11 PM

Date:

Viktor Stalberg will play in Chicago for the first time since signing with the Nashville Predators.

"You miss Chicago, it's a great place and you miss the guys there," Stalberg said. "You move on and you have to do what you have to do. I had a great time here. There's no taking away that. It's a great time to leave with winning (the 2013 Stanley Cup), and having that memory with those guys and that group over the last couple of years." Stalberg joined Nashville hoping to play a bigger role than the one he had in Chicago. Instead, his playing time has actually gone down to an average of 13:05 minutes per game this season. He has just seven goals and 16 points in 55 contests.

Jan 3 - 9:50 AM

With four points in his past five games -- his best run of the season -- Viktor Stalberg is beginning to produce the way the Nashville Predators thought he could when they signed him to a four-year contract in the summer.

"He has the ability to break games open," Predators forward Eric Nystrom said. "With him, I think it’s just about confidence and just knowing what he is good at and using that to his ability. I think he has been skating really well, and when he breaks, he can flat out fly. When he got that opportunity (Saturday in a 3-2 win against San Jose), he made the right play. He took a shot, and he’s a shooter." Stalberg said he's "feeling better and better. Obviously getting more chances out there, too. I think overall my game is a lot better."

Viktor Stalberg notched a goal and an assist for the Predators in their 3-2 win against the Sharks on Saturday night.

Viktor Stalberg recorded an assist in Nashville's 5-2 loss to Washington on Saturday.

Stalberg has three goals and eight points in 24 games with the Nashville Predators in 2013-14. There was some hope that he'd get top-six minutes this season and thus take a step forward, but he's averaging just 13:15 minutes per contest.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 10:21:00 AM

Viktor Stalberg buried just his third goal of the season for Nashville in a 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes Thursday.

It's been an uphill climb for the former Blackhawk and Maple Leaf, who has recorded only three goals in 23 games with the Predators. Mike Fisher was the only other goal scorer for Nashville in the defeat.

Viktor Stalberg dropped his gloves with the intention to fight Tuesday night, but Detroit forward Mikael Samuelsson didn't reciprocate.

"I got an elbow in my face, and he started shoving a little bit, and I thought he was going to drop them, and I did for the sake of saving myself," Stalberg explained. "There wasn't much to it." He ended up with a penalty for holding on the play, while Samuelsson got two minutes for hooking. Stalberg also had an assist and two shots in the match.

Viktor Stalberg scored a goal against his former team, the Chicago Blackhawks, on Saturday.

That's just a small bright spot in what has been a disappointing campaign for Stalberg so far. The hope was that joining the Predators would increase Stalberg's playing time and thus his fantasy value. Instead he's averaged just 12:59 minutes per game and has three points in 14 contests.

Viktor Stalberg will have plenty of motivation Saturday night.

The Blackhawks, Stalberg's former team, visit Nashville for the first time since Stalberg signed an off-season deal with the Preds. He has not contributed much in the way of offense so far as he has been slow to recover from a shoulder injury. Saturday night be a good time fopr Stalberg to finally get in gear.
