According to general manager Don Sweeney, Nordstrom has a fracture in his foot that will require testing. Nordstrom likely suffered his injury during Wednesday's Game 7 loss to the Blues, as he only logged 8:21 of ice time after averaging 15:53 of ice time per contest through the first six games of the series. At this point it isn't clear if Nordstrom's injury will have any impact on his offseason training schedule, but another update on his condition should surface after he undergoes additional testing.
Nordstrom notched two assists and went plus-2 in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Blues in Game 3. The fourth-line winger also skated 15:17 in the contest, ranking fourth among Bruins forwards. Nordstrom is up to eight points in 19 contests during the postseason, adding 50 hits during the playoff run.
Nordstrom scored his third goal of the postseason in a 3-2 overtime loss to St. Louis in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Wednesday. With the game tied 1-1 midway through the first period, Nordstrom scored to give Boston a 2-1 lead. While the hosts would go on to lose Wednesday night's affair, it was nonetheless a positive performance for the fourth-line winger, with Nordstrom recording a team-high five blocks and breaking out of a goal-scoring slump that had reached 11 games.
Nordstrom produced an assist and four hits in Monday's 4-2 win over the Blues in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Swedish winger has managed five points in 17 postseason games now, averaging 13:14 per contest entering the Cup finals. It's unlikely he'll be a regular contributor on the scoresheet, but his 46 hits in the playoffs do provide another form of fantasy value.
Nordstrom scored a goal and an assist during Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Maple Leafs in Game 7. He opened the scoring late in the first period by squeezing a shot between Frederik Andersen and the post from a sharp angle, then assisted on Sean Kuraly's third-period tally that helped put the game away. Nordstrom only had one other point (a goal) in the series prior to Tuesday, and the fourth liner likely won't be a big scoring threat for the Bruins when they take on the Blue Jackets in the second round.
