Dahlstrom was assigned to AHL Henderson on Thursday.
Dahlstrom will likely continue to shuffle between the minors and the taxi squad throughout the campaign, but he isn't expected to have a regular NHL role this year. The 26-year-old blueliner picked up one assist in 15 games with the Jets last season.
Dahlstrom was placed on the taxi squad Wednesday via AHL Henderson.
Dahlstrom failed to make the team out of training camp in January, and he's gone pointless through two games in the minors this season. The 26-year-old will add depth on defense after Shea Theodore (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game against the Ducks early. Dahlstrom could enter the lineup for Thursday's game against Anaheim.
Dahlstrom was waived by the Golden Knights on Monday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
The Golden Knights acquired venerable playmaking defender, Alex Pietrangelo, in free agency, which means the young club can afford to be patient with Dahlstrom. Selected by Chicago with a second-round (51st overall) pick in 2013, Dahlstrom checks out physically at 6-foot-4 and 231 pounds, but the verdict is still out on how quickly he can get his offensive game up to speed.
Dahlstrom was sent to Vegas from Winnipeg, along with a 2022 fourth-round pick, in a swap for Paul Stastny on Friday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Dahlstrom was limited to just 15 games for Winnipeg last season, often serving as a healthy scratch. When he got into the lineup, the defenseman recorded just one assist, nine shots and 13 blocks while logging 14:46 of ice time per game. The Swede won't find minutes any easier to come by with the Knights, though the departures of Deryk Engelland and Jon Merrill could clear up a spot.
Dahlstrom (hand) was taken off injured reserve Monday.
Despite coming off IR, Dahlstrom may still have to watch from the press box in favor of Nathan Beaulieu and Tucker Poolman against Arizona on Monday. Even when healthy, Dahlstrom has appeared in just 15 contests this season, in which he has notched one helper, nine shots and six PIM while averaging 14:46 of ice time.
Dahlstrom (hand) was designated for injured reserve Thursday.
Considering Dahlstrom is expected to be sidelined for at least six weeks, his placement on IR shouldn't come as a surprise. With Tucker Poolman (lower body) also headed for injured reserve, the Jets will probably need to promote a player from the minors and Cameron Schilling figures to be the most likely candidate.
Dahlstrom will be sidelined at least six weeks due to a broken hand suffered Tuesday against the Canucks, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Dahlstrom has served as a healthy scratch for much fo the season, but he got an opportunity to play Tuesday and took advantage with his first point (an assist) of the season. Unfortunately, the blueliner picked up a broken hand along the way and will leave the Jets short on depth on the back end. The Jets may be forced to hail reinforcements from the AHL if the other injured defensemen aren't ready in time for the start of a three-game road trip Sunday in Chicago.
Dahlstrom suffered an upper-body injury in Tuesday's game versus the Canucks.
Dahlstrom entered the lineup after lower-body injuries sidelined Tucker Poolman and Nathan Beaulieu. It's unclear how long Dahlstrom will be out, but the Jets will have to finish Tuesday's game with five defensemen at a minimum. Dmitry Kulikov figures to enter the lineup if Dahlstrom is unable to go Friday versus the Lightning, which sounds highly likely. After the game, coach Paul Maurice said Dahlstrom's injury is "not going to be short term," Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Dahlstrom was a healthy scratch versus the Habs on Monday.
After suiting up in the Jets' prior two contests, Dahlstrom found himself back in the press box while Sami Niku took his spot on the blue line. With Dmitry Kulikov (upper body) set to return soon, Dahlstrom will find minutes even harder to come by and could even end up back on the waiver wire.
Dahlstrom was a healthy scratch versus Philadelphia on Sunday.
It was the fifth consecutive game in the press box for Dahlstrom, who has played in just two of the Jets' last 20 contests. At this point, it will likely take another injury for Dahlstrom to get into the lineup with any consistency, otherwise, he will need to hope to get a look over Anthony Bitetto from time to time.
Dahlstrom served as a healthy scratch against Nashville on Tuesday, his ninth straight game in the press box.
Dahlstrom has found himself on the outside looking in ever since the team snagged Luca Sbisa off the waiver wire. Given the emergence of Tucker Poolman, the 24-year-old Dahlstrom will be hard pressed to win back a spot on the blue line and could wind up back on waivers himself before too long.
Dahlstrom logged a meager 9:12 of ice time versus the Flames on Saturday.
Dahlstrom has consistently been over the 15-minute mark in each of his first eight appearances, but this drastic dip in ice time should be a red flag for fantasy owners. Additionally, the Jets recently claimed Luca Sbisa off waivers to bolster their blue line depth, which could be an indication Dahlstrom will be headed to the minors sooner rather than later.
Dahlstrom will suit up for his first game with the Jets on Sunday.
Dahlstrom was snagged off waivers at the beginning of the month as some insurance for Winnipeg's thin blue line. Josh Morrissey (upper body) was a late scratch before Sunday's game against the Islanders, opening a lineup spot for the 24-year-old Swede to make his team debut.
Dahlstrom was picked up off the waiver wire by the Jets from the Blackhawks on Tuesday.
Considering Winnipeg's blue line concerns with Dustin Byfuglien (personal) away from the team, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see the club patrolling the waiver wire. The acquisition of Dahlstrom likely ends Tucker Poolman's chances of making the 23-man roster for Opening Night. Given he just joined the team, Dahlstrom figures to serve as a healthy scratch versus the Rangers on Thursday, especially if Sami Niku (groin) is healthy.
Dahlstrom was waived by the Blackhawks for the purpose of reassignment Monday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Dahlstrom suited up in 38 games for Chicago last year, dishing out six assists and recording a plus-9 rating. The 25-year-old blueliner couldn't crack the big club's lineup after the Blackhawks traded for Calvin de Haan (shoulder) and Olli Maatta this offseason. If Dahlstrom clears waivers, he'll begin the season with AHL Rockford.
Dahlstrom agreed to terms on a two-year, $1.7 million contract extension with the Blackhawks on Wednesday, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.
Dahlstrom has only appeared in 46 games with the Blackhawks since being selected in the second round of the 2013 draft, notching nine assists over that span, so although he'll almost certainly never develop into a desirable fantasy asset, he should remain a solid rotational player for Chicago during the next two seasons.
Dahlstrom (illness) skated 15:50 in a 4-3 win over the Ducks on Wednesday.
The second-year defender has only six assists in 28 appearances. He's safe to avoid in fantasy formats as he competes for minutes on the third pairing.

Dahlstrom (illness) won't suit up for Sunday's game versus the Stars, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.
Dahlstrom will miss his second straight game due to this sickness. He's not leaving offensive production on the table with no points over the last nine outings, and his absence will keep Slater Koekkoek in the lineup.
Dahlstrom (illness) won't play in Friday's game versus the Avalanche, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
Dahlstrom is an occassional healthy scratch, but he's suited up in the last six games. Due to his absence, recently recalled Henri Jokiharju will slot into the lineup. Dahlstrom's next chance to play will be Sunday versus the Stars.
