The Predators have assigned Stalberg to AHL Milwaukee, the team's official site reports.

Stalberg, who has notched three helpers in 10 games with the big club, heads back to Milwaukee, where he has notched six points in six AHL contests to date.

Stalberg notched a pair of assists, went plus-2 and picked up a minor penalty in his 10:56 of ice time during Tuesday's win over the Hurricanes.

He's rattled off three assists and a plus-3 rating in three games since coming back from the AHL, but it seems doubtful that this little stretch will cause the Preds to elevate him into a top-six role. For three straight years now, Stalberg's been unable to regain the scoring touch that led him to 22 goals and 43 points with the Blackhawks in 2011-12.

Stalberg was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Saturday.

With the Predators placing Taylor Beck (illness) on injured reserve in a corresponding move, Stalberg will provide the team with an alternative on the fourth line. The free-agent bust at least seemed to discover his scoring touch during his time with Milwaukee, amassing two goals and four assists over six games.

Stalberg was assigned to AHL Milwaukee on Sunday.

Stalberg was a healthy scratch in each of the last four games with the Predators, but will now head back to AHL likely to receive some extra playing time. He would likely be recalled again if the someone suffers an injury. It's also possible he will rejoin the team after receiving some playing time in the minors.

Stalberg was a healthy scratch against the Bruins on Monday, and has yet to play a single game for the Predators so far this season.

It's been a rough season for Stalberg, who spent time on the IR in November due to a knee injury followed by a brief stint at AHL Milwaukee, where he scored three points in four games. Still, with the Predators currently sitting in third place in the Western Conference, we don't expect coach Peter Laviolette to tinker with his lineup too much, which means Stalberg will likely continue to sit until an opportunity to see his first game action of the season arises -- likely in the form of an injury to one of the team's regulars.

Stalberg was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Friday.

Waived by the Predators just hours earlier, it seems like it might have been a procedural move to facilitate Paul Gaustad's placement on injured reserve. Though he's now back in Nashville, it seems unlikely that Stalberg will claim a regular role in the Nashville lineup. Look for him to serve as an extra forward until an injury to another player allows him to reclaim a spot.

Stalberg cleared waivers and was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Friday.

It represents a steep fall for Stalberg, who was signed to a four-year, $12 million contract in the summer of 2013, ostensibly to serve as a top-six forward for the Predators. That never materialized after he submitted a dismal 2013-14 campaign, and then was pushed down the depth chart this season before injuries took their toll. There's a decent chance that he'll resurface for the Predators later this season, but likely as a member of a checking line.

The Predators activated Stalberg (knee) from injured reserve Thursday and placed him on waivers.

Stalberg is set to resume playing after recovering from a knee injury, but the Predators don't have a roster spot for him at this time, so they are hoping to pass him through waivers and assign him to AHL Milwaukee in order to get in some game action.

Stalberg was placed on injured reserve over the weekend.

The Predators recalled Stalberg from his conditioning assignment at AHL Milwaukee on Saturday, but only for the purpose of moving him to IR after he suffered what is believed to be a serious knee injury Friday night. An official timetable hasn't been issued for his recovery period yet, but Stalberg is generally expected to miss multiple weeks.

Stalberg (knee) was recalled from his conditioning assignment at AHL Milwaukee on Saturday.

After suffering what is believed to be a serious injury in his final game Friday with Milwaukee, Stalberg won't be rejoining the Predators as a potential lineup option. He'll be evaluated closely by team doctors back in Nashville in an attempt to determine the severity of the injury, along with a potential return timetable. If the injury proves to be as significant as feared, Stalberg would more than likely be shuttled over to injured reserve.
