Joakim Nordstrom will play in his fourth straight postseason game on Tuesday.

It's a big opportunity for Nordstrom, given that he only had 16 contests worth of NHL experience going into the 2014 playoffs. He's playing alongside Brandon Saad and Marcus Kruger on the third line. Playing with Kruger in particular is helpful for Nordstrom as he used to play for Kruger's father and with his brother. "He's easy to play with and obviously he's helping me out, explaining if I don't understand or things like that. That makes it easy for me," Nordstrom said of Kruger. "He makes other players better, too, so he's a great player to play with."

The Chicago Blackhawks made a bit of a surprising lineup change for Game 6 against the St. Louis Blues, replacing Kris Versteeg with Joakim Nordstrom.

It may or may not be the right move in reality, but from a fantasy perspective, it's expected to be a minus. While Versteeg has his flaws, he also has more offensive potential (at this point) than Nordstrom.

Longshot Joakim Nordstrom is on the verge of earning a roster spot with the Blackhawks.

He came out of nowhere to impress the Hawks' coaching staff and will likely be a prominent fixture on the Chicago penalty-killing unit. Nordstrom is not much of a scorer. Last season he registered a mere three points in 11 games in the AHL. His numbers in Sweden are not that much better.

Joakim Nordstrom has even surprised himself that he's still at Chicago's training camp.

"I like his speed, (he's a) young guy (with) good instincts on both sides of the puck," coach Joel Quenneville said Wednesday. "I thought he did a good job penalty killing. He and Marcus (Kruger) had some nice little chemistry. (Nordstrom) has really progressed for where he was a year ago. He looks like he's made a big jump." The Hawks may be looking at him as a possible replacement for Michael Frolik, who was traded to Winnipeg in the off-season.

He was chosen in the third round of the 2010 draft by the Blackhawks.
