Joakim Nordstrom is projected to be out for about a week with an upper-body injury.

He was injured on Wednesday night and didn't practice on Thursday. Nordstrom doesn't have any fantasy value.
Mar 27 - 10:57 AM

Joakim Nordstrom sustained an injury Wednesday night and he left the game.

He was hit hard into the boards by Philadelphia blueliner Nicklas Grossmann early in the third period. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Joakim Nordstrom has finished serving his two game suspension and will dress Wednesday night versus the Rangers.

Nordstrom was suspended for two games on March 13th after boarding Arizona's star defenseman, Oliver Ekman-Larsson. The sentence is now complete and Nordstrom will rejoin the lineup. He has recorded just two assists and a minus four rating in 31 games played; most while playing on the fourth line. Andrew Desjardins is the most likely player to sit in Nordstrom's place Wednesday.

Joakim Nordstrom has been suspended for two games after boarding Arizona's Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

The NHL felt that the onus was on Nordstrom to avoid the hit as Ekman-Larsson had his back to Nordstrom and made "no sudden or unpredictable movements" that caused him to become vulnerable. Ekman-Larsson went to the dressing room as a result of the hit, although fortunately he didn't suffer a significant injury. The NHL also factored in Nordstrom's clean history over his young NHL career. Nordstrom is eligible to play on Wednesday.

Joakim Nordstrom was recalled from AHL Rockford on Sunday evening.

Nordstrom has just a goal and five points through 40 career NHL games since 2013, but the Swedish center is still only 22 years old. He has 26 goals and 49 points in 81 games down on the farm over that time.

Joakim Nordstrom has been sent down by Chicago.

Kris Versteeg has been activated by the Blackhawks, so Nordstrom was reassigned to make room. Nordstrom has two assists in 24 NHL games this year.
Feb 11 - 11:26 AM

Joakim Nordstrom and Tim Erixon scratched Monday night against Arizona.

Nordstrom has sat out the last two Blackhawk games and has yet to find the back of the net in 24 games at center. That doesn’t translate very well from a fantasy perspective. As for Erixon, he’s played in just one game since December 29th and has just a goal and five assists in 25 games on the year. The former first round draft pick has not lived up to the expectations set upon him so far.
Feb 9 - 8:33 PM

Joakim Nordstrom will tag in for Daniel Carcillo on Sunday night against the Dallas Stars.

Carcillo potentially has an in-person hearing with the Department of Player Safety coming, suggesting he could be banned upwards of five games. But to be clear, we don't know how many games he'll get. In the mean time, Nordstrom will skate to the left of Marcus Kruger and Andrew Shaw on the Hawks' fourth line. Nordstrom has no fantasy value to speak of.

Joakim Nordstrom and Tim Erixon are healthy scratches in Sunday's game vs. Minnesota.

Kris Versteeg isn't in Chicago's lineup because of an injury. Nordstrom has two assists in 17 games this season, while Erixon has six points in 24 games.
Jan 11 - 7:53 PM

It sounds like Joakim Nordstrom will take Daniel Carcillo's spot in the Chicago Blackhawks lineup on Sunday.

Nordstrom may line up with Teuvo Teravainen and Ben Smith, at least if previous line combinations hold. Nordstrom, 22, has two assists in 13 NHL games and generated 13 points in 17 games in the AHL this season.

Joakim Nordstrom will be a healthy scratch Monday night against the Predators.

The Hawks will roll with the same lines from December 27th so Nordstrom will be on the sidelines. In 13 games this season, he has two assists and a minus one rating with no penalty minutes. He shouldn't be rostered on any fantasy team for the time being.
