Joakim Nordstrom (illness) won't play in Friday's game against Washington.

Jan 12 - 7:20 PM

Joakim Nordstrom heads into Tuesday's game against the Capitals with no points over his past 20 outings.

Nordstrom continues to log 10-13 minutes per night, but he hasn't gotten onto the scoresheet since lighting the lamp Nov. 18 in Buffalo. He is just 24 years old and has a ton of upside, but as long as he is working on a checking line he isn't someone to rely upon even in the deepest of fantasy pools.
Jan 1 - 10:23 PM

Joakim Nordstrom scored the only goal in Tuesday's 1-0 win over the San Jose Sharks.

It took a while, but we finally got a goal in this game. Nordstrom broke the scoreless tie at the 10:48 mark of the third period. Viktor Stalberg picked up the assist on Nordstrom's first goal of the year. The 24-year-old has three points in 15 games this season.

Joakim Nordstrom underwent a "minor" procedure on his wrist, according to GM Ron Francis.

Joakim Nordstrom has agreed to a two-year, $2.55 million extension with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Nordstrom had 10 goals and 24 points in 71 contests in 2015-16. He'll earn $1.25 million next season and $1.3 million in the second campaign of his contract. That's quite the raise from the $605,000 he earned this season. "Joakim took a major step forward in his career last season," said Hurricanes GM Ron Francis. "We expect him to continue to grow as both a player and a leader on our team."

Joakim Nordstrom scored his 10th goal of the season in a 3-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Nordstrom's goal came past the midway mark of the third period and put the Hurricanes up 2-1. The 24-year-old has 10 goals and 23 points in 62 games this season. He finished with an even rating, one shot on goal, one hit, and skated 21:37.

Joakim Nordstrom is now playing on the top line with Carolina.

The winger is playing alongside Jordan Staal and Elias Lindholm and has been playing well of late. "What I like about him is his upside offensively and just how passionate he is when he plays," Carolina coach Bill Peters said. "He plays the game hard, he plays it properly and he’s got the right DNA to stay here for a long time." Nordstrom has nine goals and 21 points in 54 games this season but expect more from the 24-year-old the rest of this season and next.

Joakim Nordstrom scored the game winning goal in Carolina's victory last night.

The goal late in the third period helped snap the Hurricanes three-game losing streak. The 24 year-old has nine goals to go along with his 12 assists in 54 games played this season with Carolina.

Joakim Nordstrom registered two assists in Carolina's 5-3 win over Winnipeg Friday night.

Joakim Nordstrom scored a goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers.

Nordstrom's goal at the 3:29 mark of the second period cut New York's lead to 2-1, but two goals from J.T. Miller put the game out of reach. Andrej Nestrasil picked up the only assist on the goal. Nordstrom has three goals and 10 points in 38 games this season.

Joakim Nordstrom has a goal and three assists in 23 games this season.

Nordstrom was the other player that went Carolina's way in the Kris Versteeg trade. The move from Chicago to the Hurricanes hasn't resulted in much of a change from an offensive perspective, but he has been getting more responsibilities now that he's out from under the deep Blackhawks' roster. He's gone from averaging 10:58 minutes per game in Chicago to an average of 13:54 minutes in 2015-16. He's still just 23-years-old, so there's time for him to grow further, but we don't expect him to ever have much value in standard fantasy leagues.

Joakim Nordstrom registered an assist in a 3-2 overtime loss on Thursday.

It was Nordstrom's first NHL point of the 2015-16 campaign. He has a goal and six assists in 59 career contests.

Joakim Nordstrom has recalled to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Nordstrom, who has dealt with a leg injury this season, has suited up just four time between the Hurricanes and their AHL affiliate the Charlotte Checkers. He has no points. The 23-year-old has just seven points in 57 career NHL games, so don't feel compelled to pick him up on waivers.

Joakim Nordstrom (leg) returned to practice on Saturday.

The forward has missed the last eight games after blocking a shot on October 10. Nordstrom was dealt to Carolina from Chicago with Kris Versteeg for Dennis Robertson and Jake Massie as the Blackhawks were unloading salary before the start of training camp. He had only six points in 54 NHL games coming into this season so do not expect much in fantasy from the center.
