Preds Send Stalberg To AHL

News: The Predators have assigned Viktor Stalberg to AHL Milwaukee, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Viktor Stalberg, who has notched three helpers in 10 games with the big club, heads back to Milwaukee, where he has notched six points in six AHL contests to date.

Preds' Stalberg Stuffs Stat Sheet In Win

News: Viktor Stalberg notched a pair of assists, went plus-2 and picked up a minor penalty in his 10:56 of ice time during Tuesday's win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He's rattled off three assists and a plus-3 rating in three games since coming back from the AHL, but it seems doubtful that this little stretch will cause the Preds to elevate him into a top-six role. We're now in the third consecutive season of Viktor Stalberg being unable to regain the offensive abilities that led him to 22 goals and 43 points with the Blackhawks in 2011-12, but perhaps he found his game to some degree while he was down in the AHL.

Preds Recall Stalberg From Minors

News: Viktor Stalberg was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Saturday.
Analysis: With the Predators placing Taylor Beck (illness) on injured reserve in a corresponding move, Viktor Stalberg will provide the team with an alternative on the fourth line. The free-agent bust at least seemed to discover his scoring touch during his time with Milwaukee, amassing two goals and four assists over six games.

Preds Assign Stalberg To AHL

News: Viktor Stalberg was assigned to AHL Milwaukee on Sunday.
Analysis: Viktor Stalberg was a healthy scratch in each of the last four games with the Predators, but will now head back to AHL likely to receive some extra playing time. He would likely be recalled again if the someone suffers an injury. It's also possible he will rejoin the team after receiving some playing time in the minors.

Preds' Stalberg Waiting To Crack Lineup

News: Viktor Stalberg was a healthy scratch against the Bruins on Monday, and has yet to play a single game for the Predators so far this season.
Analysis: It's been a rough season for Viktor Stalberg, who spent time on the IR in November due to a knee injury followed by a brief stint at AHL Milwaukee, where he scored three points in four games. Still, with the Predators currently sitting in third place in the Western Conference, we don't expect coach Peter Laviolette to tinker with his lineup too much, which means Stalberg will likely continue to sit until an opportunity to see his first game action of the season arises -- likely in the form of an injury to one of the team's regulars.

Preds Recall Stalberg

News: Viktor Stalberg was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Friday.
Analysis: Waived by the Predators just hours earlier, it seems like it might have been a procedural move to facilitate Paul Gaustad's placement on injured reserve. Though he's now back in Nashville, it seems unlikely that Viktor Stalberg will claim a regular role in the Nashville lineup. Look for him to serve as an extra forward until an injury to another player allows him to reclaim a spot.

Preds' Stalberg Clears Waivers

News: Viktor Stalberg cleared waivers and was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Friday.
Analysis: It represents a steep fall for Viktor Stalberg, who was signed to a four-year, $12 million contract in the summer of 2013, ostensibly to serve as a top-six forward for the Predators. That never materialized after he submitted a dismal 2013-14 campaign, and then was pushed down the depth chart this season before injuries took their toll. There's a decent chance that he'll resurface for the Predators later this season, but likely as a member of a checking line.

Predators Place Stalberg On Waivers

News: The Predators activated Viktor Stalberg (knee) from injured reserve Thursday and placed him on waivers.
Analysis: Viktor Stalberg is set to resume playing after recovering from a knee injury, but the Predators don't have a roster spot for him at this time. They are hoping to pass him through waivers and assign him to AHL Milwaukee in order to get him some game action.

Predators Place Stalberg On IR

News: Viktor Stalberg (knee) was placed on injured reserve over the weekend.
Analysis: The Predators recalled Viktor Stalberg from his conditioning assignment at AHL Milwaukee on Saturday, but only for the purpose of moving him to IR after he suffered what is believed to be a serious knee injury Friday night. An official timetable hasn't been issued for his recovery period yet, but Stalberg is generally expected to miss multiple weeks.

Preds Recall Stalberg From Conditioning Assignment

News: Viktor Stalberg (knee) was recalled from his conditioning assignment at AHL Milwaukee on Saturday.
Analysis: After suffering what is believed to be a serious injury in his final game Friday with Milwaukee, Viktor Stalberg won't be rejoining the Predators as a potential lineup option. He'll be evaluated closely by team doctors back in Nashville in an attempt to determine the severity of the injury, along with a potential return timetable. If the injury proves to be as significant as feared, Stalberg would more than likely be shuttled over to injured reserve.

Preds' Stalberg Suffers Significant Knee Injury

News: Viktor Stalberg suffered what could be a significant knee injury during a game with AHL Milwaukee on Friday, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Friday was supposed to mark the final game of Viktor Stalberg's conditioning assignment at Milwaukee before rejoining the Predators, however, it looks like he could now be bound for injured reserve instead. Stalberg will head to Nashville to have his injury evaluated, but the initial reports don't sound promising, as the forward was unable to put any weight on his right leg while leaving the ice. Stalberg was held without a point in five games for the Predators before being sent to Milwaukee for conditioning work.

Predators Send Stalberg For Conditiong Work

News: The Predators sent Viktor Stalberg on a conditioning assignment with AHL Milwaukee on Wednesday.
Analysis: Viktor Stalberg has seen limited playing time since returning from a lower body injury, so the Predators decided to send him to Milwaukee for the time being in order to get him some playing time. He can stay with Milwaukee for up to two weeks, so it remains to be seen exactly he will return to Nashville.

Preds Activate Stalberg

News: Viktor Stalberg was activated from injured reserve Friday and will be available for the Predators' game against the Jets, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: If the Predators decide to use Viktor Stalberg on Friday, he'd likely slot in on the Preds' second line, joining Derek Roy and Craig Smith. Before returning to full practice earlier this week, Stalberg had been sidelined since Sept. 22 with the lower-body injury.

Preds' Stalberg Close To Returning

News: Viktor Stalberg (lower body) skated on the second line during Tuesday's practice and is close to a return, according to the Predators' official website.
Analysis: Viktor Stalberg said he has "felt pretty good in practice the last few days" and has been able to continue practicing and working out, so hopefully he doesn't have to shake off too much rust once he gets the green light to rejoin the lineup. If Stalberg doesn't accompany his teammates on their upcoming road trip to Winnipeg (Friday) and Chicago (Saturday), look for a possible return next Tuesday against the Coyotes.

Preds' Stalberg Sees Status Upgrade

News: Viktor Stalberg (lower body) practiced fully Friday, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: While Viktor Stalberg figures to remain on injured reserve for Saturday's game against the Stars, the Predators have updated his condition to day-to-day. He could make his return at some point next week.

Preds' Stalberg (Lower Body) Practices With Team

News: Viktor Stalberg (lower body) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, according to The Tennessean.
Analysis: Viktor Stalberg was officially placed on IR Tuesday and will not play in Thursday's season opener against Ottawa. However, the fact that he's now fully taking part in practice is a very good sign. His timetable for return remains at 1-2 weeks, so look for him to possibly rejoin the lineup Oct. 14 against Calgary.

Preds Put Stalberg (Lower Body) On Injured Reserve

News: Viktor Stalberg (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, according to the Predators' official website.
Analysis: The good news is, Viktor Stalberg has been skating with the team, which means he could be close to a return. Now that he's on the IR, the earliest he could rejoin the lineup would be Oct. 14 against Calgary. In the meantime, keep him on your fantasy bench until you see his name in a boxscore.

Preds' Stalberg (Lower Body) Skates With Team

News: Viktor Stalberg (lower body) skated with the team Saturday morning, his first team skate since suffering his injury Sept. 22, according to The Tennessean. "I felt pretty good," Stalberg said. "It's getting close. It's one of those things you can't push it too hard and rush it or else you have to deal with it all year. Hopefully I will be ready to go pretty soon."
Analysis: According to the team, Viktor Stalberg remains on the same 2-4 week timetable from when he was initially hurt, so expect him back sometime in mid-October. He is expected to skate on one of the Preds' checking lines once he returns.

Preds' Stalberg (Lower Body) Resumes Skating

News: Viktor Stalberg (lower body), is skating outside of team practices, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: Viktor Stalberg's original prognosis was two-to-four weeks, which puts him back in the lineup hopefully no later than mid-October. Even when he does return, he is likely looking at a checking-line role which gives him minimal fantasy value outside of deeper formats.

Preds' Stalberg (Lower Body) Out 2-4 Weeks

News: Viktor Stalberg will be out two-to-four weeks with a lower-body injury.
Analysis: Viktor Stalberg was set to enter 2014-15 in search of redemption after a dismal first season in Nashville, and it looks as though he's already gotten off to a troubling start. The injury timetable will more than likely keep him unavailable for the Preds' Oct. 9 opener against the Senators, and quite possibly, several more games beyond that. Though he's only two seasons removed from 40-point production, his shaky health and downward-trending point totals make it difficult to justify drafting him, even in deep formats.

Preds' Stalberg Dealing With Lower-Body Injury

News: Viktor Stalberg sustained a lower-body injury in Monday's practice, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: It looked like the injury was related to Viktor Stalberg's right leg, as he was attempting to keep weight off the limb while he left the ice. The Predators will reevaluate his condition Tuesday, but he'll likely be held out for that night's preseason opener against the Lightning regardless of what the tests indicate. Stalberg was already entering the season with something to prove after he was a major disappointment in Year 1 in Nashville, when he totaled just 18 points in 70 games. The injury could end up hurting his chances of reclaiming a top-six role, and at this point, he's probably best left undrafted in all but the deepest of leagues.

Preds' Stalberg Scores Friday

News: Viktor Stalberg scored his eighth goal of the season during the Predators' 6-5 win over the Flames on Friday.
Analysis: The goal was Viktor Stalberg's first in 11 games and the 25-year-old wing has just eight goals and nine assists over 59 games this year. He's played a little stronger over his last three games after a major reduction of ice time seemed to get the team's point across to him that his minus-15 rating wasn't going to be tolerated for much longer.

Preds' Stalberg Demoted To Third Line

News: Viktor Stalberg skated just 9:57 during Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Sabres. He played mostly on the Preds' third line alongside Rich Clune and Paul Gaustad.
Analysis: It's pretty much official at this point - with just 16 points in 55 games, Viktor Stalberg has been a complete bust his first year in Nashville. With three years remaining on his contract at $3 million per, he will be a tough commodity for the Preds to move if they want to rid themselves of his services. Needless to say, both the team and fantasy owners alike were expecting much more. He should not be on anyone's fantasy roster right now.

Preds' Stalberg Will Play Saturday

News: Viktor Stalberg (upper body) will play Saturday against the Ducks, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The return to the lineup will mark Viktor Stalberg's first game since Jan. 24. With 15 points and a minus-10 rating in 47 games on the season, Stalberg has been a disappointment for the Predators after signing a four-year, $12 million contract in July.

Predators' Stalberg Could Return Thursday

News: Coach Barry Trotz is optimistic that Viktor Stalberg (upper body) will be ready to return Thursday against the Wild, John Glennon of the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Stalbeg, who hasn't played since Jan. 24, has recorded 15 points and a minus-10 rating in 47 games to date, numbers that restrict his utility to deeper formats.
