Predators' Stalberg injured in game vs 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 favoring 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 offseason after helping the Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup last season.
