Joakim Nordstrom's recently inked one-year deal with the Chicago Blackhawks is a two-way agreement.

Nordstrom will come with a $605,000 annual cap hit at the NHL level. When he's playing in the minors though, he'll earn $67,500 annually. He isn't projected to have any fantasy value in standard leagues in 2015-16.

After playing in Game 3 against the Anaheim Ducks, forward Joakim Nordstrom will go back to being a healthy scratch for the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 4.

After missing more than a month of action, Nordstrom only received 7:06 TOI, so it was obvious that his "fresh legs" didn't really make a difference for the Blackhawks, who went down 2-1 in their series against the Ducks.

Joakim Nordstrom logged 7:06 minutes in Game 3 on Thursday.

It was Nordstrom's first game in a little over a month. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville made some lineup changes because Game 2 went to triple-overtime and he wanted to get some fresh legs in there as a result. Nordstrom played alongside Marcus Kruger and Andrew Desjardins.

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.
Mar 18 - 6:31 PM

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.
Mar 13 - 5:36 PM

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.
Feb 22 - 9:12 PM

Joakim Nordstrom has been sent down by Chicago.

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.
