Shoulder injury to cost Predators' Stalberg 3-4 weeks

Nashville Predators forward Viktor Stalberg has been diagnosed with an AC sprain in his right shoulder and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks, the team announced Wednesday.

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.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
