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. Dec 20 - 1:37 PM

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.
Nov 8 - 2:56 PM

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.
Nov 8 - 1:37 PM

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.

Viktor Stalberg took part in the Predators' morning skate on Saturday but did not play in the game versus Dallas.

Oct 12 - 9:14 AM

Viktor Stalberg's injury status was upgraded to day-to-day after he participated in the Predators' full team practice Friday.

Stalberg has been rehabilitating a lower-body injury he sustained on September 22nd and was originally expected to be out 2-4 weeks. It looks as if he will beat that projection. It is unclear where Stalberg will play once he returns as the Preds' top two lines look pretty crowded right now.
Oct 11 - 1:29 PM

Viktor Stalberg (lower body) will start the season on injured reserve.

He took part in the first half of a full-contact practice on Monday, but he's still one to two weeks away from being able to return. Stalberg has been sidelined with a lower-body injury since he was hurt at practice on Sept. 22.
Oct 8 - 10:13 AM

Oct 4 - 11:37 AM

Viktor Stalberg is expected to miss two-to-four weeks with a lower-body injury.

He left Monday's practice early with the ailment. Stalberg will be seeking a bounce back season when he's healthy in 2014-15. Coach Peter Laviolette had Stalberg on a scoring line to open training camp, so he should get a good opportunity to improve.
