Predators' Stalberg leaves game with injury
The Nashville Predators announced that forward Viktor Stalberg suffered an upper-body injury in the first period of Tuesday's preseason game against the Tampa Bay Lightning and won't return.

The Nashville Predators announced that forward Viktor Stalberg suffered an upper-body injury in the first period of Tuesday's preseason game against the Tampa Bay Lightning and won't return.

Stalberg appeared to injur his right shoulder, according to The Tennessean's Joshua Cooper.

The Predators signed Stalberg to a four-year, $12 million contract this summer after he had 23 points (nine goals, 14 assists) and averaged 14:07 of ice time in 47 games for the Chicago Blackhawks last season. Nashville is counting on Stalberg to bolster what was one of the NHL's lowest-scoring offenses in 2012-13.

It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
