Predators' Stalberg sustains upper-body injury, leaves games against Lightning in 1st period

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Predators forward Viktor Stalberg has been injured early in the first period of Nashville's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Stalberg was checked by Tampa's Dmitry Korobov inside the Lightning zone 5:39 into the opening period Tuesday night. Stalberg skated off the ice favouring his right arm and went straight to Nashville's locker room.

The Predators announced later in the period that Stalberg sustained an upper-body injury and would not return to the game.

Stalberg signed a four-year, $12 million contract with the Predators in the off-season after helping the Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup last season.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
