Stalberg is a veteran who has bounced around recently especially around the trade deadline. He can play some good decent minutes on a 4th line but hasn’t been a big scorer in his career. This year he only has 9 goals and 3 assists in 57 games
This is a depth move for a guy who will probably play on Ottawa’s fourth line.
Ottawa has been dealing with some injuries and they want to make the playoffs. Stalberg can help them do that but I don’t see him being a huge difference maker once the playoffs begin.
Good deal for Carolina as they got a good price with that 3rd rounder
