Viktor Stalberg signs with Carolina

Forward Viktor Stalberg has signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Carolina Hurricanes, the team announced Friday.

"Adding size to our forward corps was a priority this offseason," general manager Ron Francis said in a statement. "Viktor is another big, strong player who can skate that we've added to our lineup."

Stalberg spent the 2015-16 season with the New York Rangers, where he posted nine goals and 11 assists in 75 games.

The 30-year-old has 71 goals and 152 points in a seven-year career that includes stints with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predators.

Stalberg won the Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2013.
