Blackhawks forward Viktor Stalberg is changing things up a bit while abroad during the lockout.

While he had been playing for Frolunda in the Swedish Elite League, according to reporter Andrey Osadchenko, he’ll be headed to Russia and the KHL next. There he’ll team up with Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin as well as former NHL’ers Nikolay Zherdev and Sandis Ozolinsh with Atlant Moscow.

In ten games with Frolunda, Stalberg had six goals and five assists. By joining Atlant, they’ll be hoping he can spark their offense as well as they’ve struggled so far this season.

    Please note that someone has now begun posting here under the erroneous names of “blomfelb” and “Ib4joey” ! Of course these names are fake and they should in no way be confused with either “yours truly” or blomfeld. blomfeld already has a good handle on who’s behind this little caper. But for good measure, he has also asked his old friend “Stransky” to take a look into this (ie: Stransky is a physicist and an expert in forensic causation analysis) and he’s assured blomfeld that he’ll have the name of this imposter within 48 hours, with a margin for error of “plus or minus” 2.5 hours. Once this imposter has been identified, then suffice it to say that he/she will be “dealt with” quickly and ruthlessly.

    Something needs to give with id4joey here. Ban him, suspend him whatever. This went well above annoying hours ago.

    you moron. ib4joey and blomfelb should be banned.

      Banned for what? Having similar screen names to yours? They aren’t the one spamming every post with the same whiny copy & paste comment anyway.

        Actually. The screen name is fine, and you’re right. Nor I or ib4joey should be banned. It may not be spamming, but one cannot deny that it is not contributing very positively because its only intent is to mock. However, I do find it humorous, but a fair warning to all was certainly warranted becaus some people here cannot differentiate between id4joey and ib4joey. Can you see the difference?

    Since the game is such a chess match and since Stalbergs wheelhouse spot is easy to get to in the KHL.. Victor is going to set the ice on fire with speed… Sad though we made herring ice cream for the swedes to try…
