Last season, Stalberg was on pace for 40 points over an 82 game season play about 11:52 per game He played primarily 3rd line minutes with increased powerplay time, although he only registered 2 points all season on the man advantage.

Given his career highs are only 22 goals and 43 points, I project similar output for this coming season. I'd be happy with him scoring somewhere between 40-45 points, with hopefully 20 goals. Given the increase in ice time both even strength and on the powerplay, I would not be surprised if he hit 50 points at some point during his 4 year deal. Anything more than that though seems unrealistic at this point.
He'll get more ice time per game this season than in 2011-12. I'd guess 22-25 goals is a good target range with a few more assists given an additional three to four minutes of ice time per game.
