Viktor Stalberg is expected to be scratched against Vancouver on Tuesday night.

Despite collecting three points in his past five game, Stalberg still finds it difficult to get onto the ice. Through just ten games this season he has three points, 10 PIMs, and 13 hits.
Jan 13 - 7:56 PM

Viktor Stalberg collected two assists in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Carolina.

He had the primary helper on goals by defensemen Ryan Ellis and Roman Josi, who had the game winner. Stalberg has no goals and three assists in eight matches this season.
Jan 7 - 1:06 PM

The Predators have recalled Viktor Stalberg from Milwaukee of the AHL Saturday.

With Taylor Beck going on the injured list due to an illness, the Preds were short a few bodies. We are not sure if Stalberg will suit up Saturday against Los Angeles, and if he does, whether he will play anymore than fourth line minutes. He is not a fantasy target at this time.
Jan 3 - 1:38 PM

The Nashville Predators assigned Viktor Stalberg to their AHL affiliate on Sunday.

He's been a significant disappointment with Nashville, to say the least. He hasn't played for the Preds since Oct. 25 and failed to score a point in five games.

Viktor Stalberg hasn't played for the Predators since Oct. 25.

He will be scratched again on Tuesday night. Stalberg missed a sizable chunk of the year because of a knee injury, but he has also had trouble cracking Nashville's roster when he's been healthy. He doesn't have a point in five games this year.

With James Neal likely sidelined due to an illness Saturday night, Viktor Stalberg will draw back into the Predators' lineup.

What a difference a day or two can make. Stalberg was placed on waivers, unclaimed and sent to the AHL earlier this week. Now he is back with the Preds and playing against the Wild. Sometimes professional sports just don't make sense. That said, we still can't recommend Stalberg at this time.

Viktor Stalberg has been called up by the Nashville Predators.

Stalberg cleared waivers earlier on Friday, but the Predators reversed course while putting Paul Gaustad on the injured reserve list. If Stalberg plays on Saturday, it will probably be in a minimal role.

Viktor Stalberg went unclaimed on waivers.

No surprise there given his $3 million annual cap hit through 2016-17. The Predators signed Stalberg in the hopes that he could serve as a top-six forward on their squad, but it hasn't worked out. He has just eight goals and 18 points in 75 games with Nashville over the last two seasons.

Viktor Stalberg has been put on waivers by Nashville.

The Predators intend to send him to the minors if he clears. "A couple of injuries early in the season have prevented this from being the season Viktor trained all summer for," GM David Poile said. "He has worked hard to return to the lineup. With Paul Gaustad and Taylor Beck day-to-day and still on our 23-man roster, the best option for Viktor and the organization at this time is to place Viktor on waivers with the hope that he will clear, go to Milwaukee to play games and continue his efforts to be ready for NHL game action." Stalberg is ready to return after being sidelined for six weeks with a knee injury.

Viktor Stalberg (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve.

He suffered a lower-body injury during his conditioning assignment in the minors. Stalberg was called up on Saturday and moved to the team's IR on Monday. Stalberg is expected to be out of action for another four-to-six weeks. He doesn't have a point in five games this season.

The Nashville Predators recalled winger Viktor Stalberg from his AHL conditioning assignment on Saturday.

The team didn't make mention of a feared knee injury in a press release, so it's tough to say if he's likely to play tonight or not. Stalberg's been disappointing in Nashville, though injury luck certainly hasn't been on his side, either.

Viktor Stalberg may have sustained a serious knee injury during his conditioning assignment in Milwaukee of the AHL.

He sustained the injury after being checked in Friday's game against Grand Rapids and could not put any pressure on his right knee thereafter. Stalberg will fly to Nashville to be re-evaluated Saturday. But it does not look good. If you were one of the few who were awaiting Stalberg's return from his conditioning stint to put him in your lineup, your wait continues.

Viktor Stalberg has been sent to the minors on a conditioning stint.

Stalberg was dealing with a lower-body injury during training camp and the early portion of the regular season. He's averaged just 11:59 minutes per game since returning. "Viktor has had some unfortunate injury trouble during his last two training camps," Predators GM David Poile said. "We want Viktor to have some time in Milwaukee to fine tune his game and we look forward to having him back in Nashville."

Viktor Stalberg (lower body) was activated from the IL on Friday.

Stalberg suffered the injury early in training camp and this was his first game of the season. He had three shots on goal and a minor penalty as he played a tick under 12 minutes. He eventually should get second line minutes and as a result could be worth a waiver wire pickup once he does get more playing time.
