from Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago,
Chicago Blackhawks forward Viktor Stalberg said Thursday he would likely play next season wherever he could get the most consistent playing time.
Stalberg will become an unrestricted free agent next week after spending the last three seasons with the Blackhawks.
Stalberg had nine goals and 14 assists and averaged 14:07 of ice time in 47 regular-season games this season, but his role was diminished in the playoffs and he was a healthy scratch for four games. He had three assists and averaged 10:35 of ice time in 19 playoff games. He played less than 10 minutes in nine playoff games.
"I think over the last three years I've showed I deserve to play maybe more times than I got an opportunity to do here," Stalberg said at the United Center on Thursday. "I think that's just how it is. You're on one of the best teams, and you have some of the best players in the world in front of you. That's what it is.
