Stalberg headlines 4 forwards signed by Predators on opening day of free agency

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have signed free-agent forward Viktor Stalberg to a four-year, $12 million contract in an attempt to boost an anemic offence.

Stalberg will make $2.5 million in 2013-14 and $3.5 million each in 2015-16 and 2016-17 under terms of the deal announced Friday in a team release.

The 27-year-old Stalberg had nine goals and 14 assists in 47 games for the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks this season. He appeared in 19 playoff games and had three assists.

Stalberg, a four-year veteran, had 22 goals and 43 assists for the Blackhawks in 2011-12.

Nashville had 2.27 goals last season to match the Florida Panthers for the lowest average in the NHL.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
