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 don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
