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.
I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
