  • Flames' Joakim Nordstrom: Produces assist in win

  • Flames' Joakim Nordstrom: Set to return Friday

    Nordstrom (lower body) is slated to suit up against Winnipeg on Friday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Nordstrom has missed Calgary's last nine contests due to his lower-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the Swedish winger was stuck in a rut with zero points in 23 contests in which he registered 18 shots, 32 hits and 17 blocks while averaging 10:09 of ice time. Given his nearly nonexistent offensive upside, Nordstrom won't offer much in the way of fantasy value even now that he is back in the lineup.

  • Flames' Joakim Nordstrom: Remains sidelined

    Nordstrom is considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

    Given the length of Nordstrom's expected absence, it wouldn't be surprising to see him placed on injured reserve sometime soon. The 29-year-old forward is a key member of Calgary's penalty-killing unit, but he's gone scoreless through 23 games this season, so there's no reason for fantasy managers to track his status.

  • Flames' Joakim Nordstrom: Out Sunday

    Nordstrom (lower body) is unavailable for Sunday's tilt with Ottawa.

    Fortunately for Nordstrom, after Sunday's game, the Flames are off until Thursday, so he'll have some extra time to heal up. The 29-year-old is scoreless through 23 games this season. It's unclear how severe his injury is.

  • Flames' Joakim Nordstrom: Limited to bottom six

    Nordstrom has no points through 12 games this season.

    Nordstrom has been limited to a bottom-six role with the Flames. He's collected 17 hits, six shots on goal, nine blocked shots and a minus-4 rating in 12 contests. Without any scoring to speak of, the Swede is a no-go for fantasy managers.

  • Flames' Joakim Nordstrom: Snags one-year deal

    Nordstrom agreed to terms on a one-year, $700,000 contract with Calgary on Monday.

    Nordstrom ended the year bogged down in a 32-game goal drought dating back to Dec. 31 versus the Devils. Since racking up 10 goals and 24 points back in 2015-16 with Carolina, Nordstrom has struggled to even reach the 10-point threshold. The winger figures to challenge the likes of Zac Rinaldo and Buddy Robinson for a spot in the lineup next year.

  • Joakim Nordstrom: Set to test market

    Nordstrom will be allowed to hit free agency, though general manager Don Sweeney didn't rule out bringing the center back to Boston, per Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston.

    Nordstrom ended the season stuck in a 32-game goal drought during which he registered a meager four assists. The Swede dished out plenty of hits over that stretch (89), though that's likely the bulk of his fantasy value heading into the 2020-21 campaign.

  • Bruins' Joakim Nordstrom: Ready to return versus Canadiens

    Nordstrom (illness) will play Wednesday versus Montreal, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

    Nordstrom missed four contests because of a medical issue pertaining to allergies. All appears to be good now. Montreal awaits, with Nordstrom pointless in two previous meetings with Boston's bitter rivals this season. Over his career, the forward has played Montreal 16 times and collected two goals and two assists across those meetings.

  • Bruins' Joakim Nordstrom: Missing more time

    Nordstrom (illness) won't suit up in Sunday's game against Detroit.

    Nordstrom is set to miss his fourth straight contest with the ailment, but coach Bruce Cassidy said Sunday that the forward could return Wednesday against Montreal. His absence likely won't continue to affect things from a fantasy perspective, as Nordstrom has accumulated just seven points through 39 games. Expect another update on the 27-year-old's status prior to Wednesday's game against Montreal.

  • Bruins' Joakim Nordstrom: Still sidelined

    Nordstrom (illness) is "getting closer" but he won't be available for Saturday's game against Arizona, Marisa Ingemi of the Boston Herald reports.

    Nordstrom's absence will continue to test the Bruins' depth up front, but it will go unnoticed in fantasy circles, as he's only picked up seven points in 39 games this campaign. Another update on the 27-year-old Swede's status should surface once he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.

  • Bruins' Joakim Nordstrom: Will miss two games

    Nordstrom will miss games Tuesday against Vancouver and Wednesday against Chicago due to a condition related to allergies.

    Nordstrom -- who has logged four goals and seven points in 39 games to date -- will thus target a return to action Saturday against Arizona, which sets the stage for Anton Blidh, Par Lindholm and Chris Wagner to man the Bruins' fourth line Tuesday night.

  • Bruins' Joakim Nordstrom: Ready to go against Jets

    Nordstrom (illness) will be back in the lineup versus Winnipeg on Thursday, Marisa Ingemi of the Boston Herald reports.

    Nordstrom missed Tuesday's tilt against the Predators due to his illness, but he's set to retake his spot on the fourth line. With the Swede healthy, Par Lindholm and Brett Ritchie will find themselves serving as healthy scratches. Given his limited minutes, Nordstrom should be considered a mid-range fantasy value at best.
