Stalberg took part in the team's morning skate Thursday ahead of its game against the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs, but isn't quite ready yet to make his regular-season debut with the team. He has been on injured reserve since Sept. 29, about a week after he sustained an injury to his right shoulder during training camp.
Stalberg signed a four-year, $12 million contract with the Predators during the summer.
