Word that left winger, Viktor Stalberg left practice today with an injury was just released by The Tennessean. Only on the ice for about 20 minutes, Stalberg reportedly could not place any weight on his right leg and will be re-evaluated within 24 hours. The Tennessean reported that he did, however, get up and walk to the locker room on his own with two trainers in tow. Stalberg, who had a relatively mundane season last year (8G, 10A, 18P), is expected to shine under new Head Coach Peter Laviolette this season. However, if this injury proves to be more serious than a simple off-season strain, we could see another year without the diamond that is Viktor Stalberg. The Predators venture to Tampa Bay for their first pre-season game tomorrow at 6:30PM.
