The native of Gothenburg, Sweden, will train with a local team in Sweden's Division II league as he waits to see if a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL and the NHLPA can be reached in the coming weeks.
Stalberg admitted that his preference, if he has to play overseas, is to suit up for Frolunda HC to the Swedish Elite League, but that league has refused to accept players on part-time contracts.
If in a few months the NHL announces the cancellation of the regular-season, Stalberg could join Frolunda.
"They have a lot of players, so you do not know how it would work out," Stalberg said, "but Frolunda is my first choice right now."
In 79 games with the Blackhawks last season, Stalberg registered 22 goals and 21 assists for 43 points.
