Viktor Stalberg: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Stalberg is coming off a 22-goal, 43-point season -- both career highs -- and has the inside track on the second-line left wing gig in Chicago. He should also be good for 100 hits and 200 shots, and is finally becoming the power winger the Leafs' envisioned when they drafted him in 2006.
Stalberg is still considered a top prospect for the Blackhawks and the main chip they received from the Maple Leafs when trading away Kris Versteeg before the 2010-11 season. Last campaign, he played in the NHL for 77 games and saw a slight uptick in his numbers (12 goals and 12 assists) compared to 14 points in 2009-11. Still, the 'Hawks are looking for much more this season.
Stalberg took advantage of some extra ice time in the second half of the season for the Maple Leafs. He notched seven of his nine goals and four of his five assists in the second half of what was his first season in the NHL, 2009-10. The Blackhawks are hoping that the 24-year-old left winger makes a contribution that was worth sending Kris Versteeg to Toronto as part of getting under the salary cap.
Stalberg is quickly becoming a Brian Burke favorite. The Swede broke out to a 24-goal season in college last year after firing 17 total the previous two years. He's intelligent, powerful and skilled, and has shown flashes of real top-six potential in rookie camp. Keeper leaguers should take note of his name and stash him away. He won't be in the AHL for long -- maybe a year. It won't happen immediately but there are 70 points in his composite some day.
