The Rangers signed Stalberg on Wednesday, NJ.com reports.

The 29-year-old recorded 10 points in 25 NHL games last season while shuttling between Nashville and AHL Milwaukee. With the Rangers, he'll look to re-ignite his productivity, though his chances of enjoying a fantasy resurgence hinge largely on who he ends up skating with as a Ranger.

Stalberg was placed on unconditional waivers Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

After strong seasons in 2011-12 and 2012-13, Stalberg signed a four-year, $12 million contract that didn't see his production match his lofty salary obligations. The 29-year-old winger tallied just 10 points in 25 games, both of which were career lows, while being shuttled between Nashville and AHL Milwaukee.

Stalberg cleared waivers on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

As expected, Stalberg went unclaimed in large part due to his $3 million cap hit. He's been a bit of a disappointment since signing with the Predators in July 2013, and is unlikely to occupy a meaningful role for the team in 2015-16.

Stalberg was placed on waivers Wednesday by the Predators, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

Stalberg is expected to go unclaimed due to his $3 million cap hit, but it doesn't sound like the Predators are planning on buying him out of the contract. The winger produced 10 points in 25 games with the Predators last season and looks unlikely to occupy a meaningful role for the team in 2015-16.

Stalberg assisted on James Neal's game-winning third-period goal in Thursday's 5-1 triumph over the Predators.

After being exiled to the minors for much of the season, Stalberg has started to come alive in the first-round series against his former team. The assist Thursday gives him three points through five games, with the winger chipping in a whopping 16 shots on goal to go along with 25 hits. He'll make for a strong value play in daily formats Saturday, when the Predators will head to Chicago for Game 6.

Stalberg recorded an assist during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Colorado. It was his 10th point of the season, and sixth in 12 games since being recalled from AHL Milwaukee in early March.

Stalberg continues to skate on the Preds' third line with Matt Cullen and Calle Jarnkrok, and usually sees just 10-12 minutes of ice time per night. Stalberg has found himself a healthy scratch more often than not this season; however, given the secondary scoring he's currently providing, he should continue to see a regular spot in the Preds' lineup for the remainder of the season and into the playoffs.

Stalberg (lower body) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Lightning, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

Stalberg missed Tuesday's game due to a lower-body injury suffered in practice, but was able to rejoin the team for Wednesday's session. With the winger enduring no setbacks during the Preds' gameday skate, he's slated to reenter the lineup as a member of the third line.

Stalberg (lower body) will travel with the Predators on their two-game road trip beginning Thursday in Tampa Bay.

Stalberg was ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Canadiens after suffering the injury in the team's skate session earlier in the day, but was able to return to practice Wednesday. Though his participation was enough for the Predators to bring him along on the trip, there's no guarantee that he'll be cleared to play in time for Thursday's game. With Matt Cullen also ailing with a lower-body injury, the Predators will continue to carry Viktor Arvidsson and Kevin Fiala as extra forwards.

Stalberg, who sustained the injury during Tuesday's practice, is considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's match in Tampa Bay. Emergency call-up Kevin Fiala entered the lineup Tuesday in place of the injured Stalberg, but Viktor Arvidsson served as his direct replacement on the Preds' third line.
