Bluechip Study USA is proud to announce that we now have a Stanley Cup winner among our many incredible alumni. Stalberg played with Frolunda's J20 Elit team before opting to take his game to the United States, where he played NCAA Division 1 Hockey for the University of Vermont (2006-2009).
In 2010 Viktor signed his first NHL contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs and after 1 season was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks. Stalberg is currently 1 of 6 Swedes (Carl Hagelin (Rangers), Gustav Nyquist (Red Wings), Douglas Murray (Penguins), Alexander Fallstrom (Bruins), and Erik Gustafsson (Flyers)) playing in the NHL that have also played collegiate hockey in the United States.
