Stalberg was injured Tuesday night in the first period of Nashville's preseason game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Predators signed Stalberg to a four-year, $12 million contract during the summer. He won the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks last season, scoring 23 points on nine goals and 14 assists in 47 regular season games. He also had three assists in 19 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Just talking on our side in terms of the ideas [The League has] and projects that [it's] working on, the game is certainly headed in a direction that gives us every chance to grow the business in so many different ways.
