Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Nashville Predators forward Viktor
Stalberg is slated to miss 3-to-4 weeks with a shoulder injury.
The Tennessean reported Stalberg has been sidelined due to a sprained AC joint
in his right shoulder suffered in Tuesday's 2-0 exhibition win over Tampa Bay.
The 27-year-old Swede, who signed a $12 million, 4-year deal in free agency,
finished the lockout-shortened 2013 season with nine goals and 23 points
in 47 games for the Chicago Blackhawks. The fourth-year pro struggled in
the postseason, however, totaling just three assists and earning a spot
in the press box for the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals.
A former sixth-round pick of Toronto back in 2006, Stalberg has collected 52
goals, 52 assists and 132 penalty minutes in 243 career appearances for the
Maple Leafs and Blackhawks since 2009.
