The illness has been hard for the Blues to shake, as it continues to linger through their locker room. Consider him day-to-day. Lindstrom has one goal in eight games this season.

Look for Joakim Lindstrom to get the first chance to play with Paul Stastny and Alexander Steen.

He has a history with coach Ken Hitchcock in Columbus who believes he might mesh well with the newly-acquired Stastny and last season's breakout player, Steen. Needless to say, if Lindstrom can keep this gig, he will be draft worthy in most hockey pools.

Newly-signed forward Joakim Lindstrom has some ties to the St. Louis Blues.

He played under current Blues bench boss Ken Hitchcock in Columbus and he is friends with Alexander Steen. "So he's got some offensive ability," GM Doug Armstrong said. "I think we're a team that can provide him with an opportunity and he certainly adds to our skill and our depth. Again, I don't want to oversell, but it's a player that has some skill and we'll see how he can fit into our lineup." It's unclear if he'll be able to secure a roster spot on a very deep St. Louis team.

Joakim Lindstrom has signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the St. Louis Blues.

Lindstrom is returning to the NHL after two seasons in Sweden. He had 63 points and 72 penalty minutes in 55 games with Skelleftea AIK in 2013-14. The 30-year-old also has 15 goals and 33 points in 97 career NHL contests. "He's a player that's been to North America, gone back and really reinvented his game," Blues GM Doug Armstrong said. "He came over probably too young and went back (to Sweden). He wants to come back (to the NHL). I know there were a few teams that were trying to get him to come back to North America."

Joakim Lindstrom scored twice for Skelleftea in a 3-1 win over Modo on Tuesday.

The Avalanche placed forward Joakim Lindstrom on waivers today.

Lindstrom was signed as a free agent in June after spending the last two seasons in Russia (KHL) and his native Sweden. Colorado coach Joe Sacco gave the forward, who will turn 28 on Dec. 5, plenty of chances. Lindstrom played on the top two lines and was used on the point with the man advantage. However, in 16 games, he could only muster 2-3-5 while going minus-9. It was Lindstrom’s fifth shot at the NHL having played parts of four seasons with Columbus and Phoenix prior to going overseas after the 2008-09 campaign.

The Colorado Avalanche have signed Joakim Lindstrom to a one-year/$600,000 contract.

Lindstrom last saw action in the NHL for the Phoenix Coyotes in the the 2008-09 season scoring nine goals and 20 points in 44 games. He played last season in the Swedish Elite League for Skelleftea, earning All-Star status as he popped 28 goals to go with 32 assists to lead the league in scoring. Look for the 28-year-old former second round pick to have a chance to be a top-six forward with the Avalanche next season.

Joakim Lindstrom scored a goal and added an assist but it wasn't enough as the Phoenix Coyotes dropped a 5-4 decision to the Detroit Red Wings.

Despite the big night, Lindstrom only has eight goals and four assists in 25 games this season. There should be better fantasy options on your waiver wire.

Joakim Lindstrom potted two goals as Phoenix downed the Canucks 4-1.

Lindstrom's sixth and seventh goals of the season opened up the scoreboard. He played well with Shane Doan, who assisted on both goals. Peter Mueller netted his tenth on the powerplay, and Keith Yandle rounded out the scoring. Even though Lindstrom's point production went up 33% with this effort, he's not quite ready for fantasy prime time.

Joakim Lindstrom picked up a goal and an assist in Saturday night's shootout loss to the Red Wings.

Lindstrom picked up earlier this season to join the youth movement in Phoenix. In three games for the Coyotes, he has three points (two goals and one assist). He has shown some chemistry playing with Mikkel Boedker in the past two contests. Look for coach Wayne Gretzky to continue pairing the duo together to see if they can jump start the stagnant Coyotes offense. Boedker picked up a goal and assist in the contest, while Ed Jovanovski picked up two assists.
