Joakim Nordström (born February 25, 1992) is a Swedish professional ice hockey centre for the Carolina Hurricanes of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the third round, 90th overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.[1] He won the Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2015.

Playing career[edit]

He is the brother of Dennis Nordström.[citation needed]

Nordström made his SHL debut on September 23, 2010, against Södertälje SK.[2] He signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Blackhawks on May 29, 2012, but remained with AIK for the 2012–13 season.[3] Nordström made his NHL debut with the Blackhawks on October 1, 2013. He scored his first NHL goal on October 11, 2013 against Kevin Poulin of the New York Islanders. Nordström was sent down to the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL on October 21, 2013,[4] where he played before being recalled back to the Blackhawks on April 2, 2014.[5] In the 2014-2015 season with the IceHogs, Nordström was the captain of the IceHogs though he played 38 games with the Blackhawks, including three in the playoffs, and was part of the team that won the Stanley Cup in 2015.[6][7]

On March 13, 2015, Nordström was suspended for two games for boarding against Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson in a game the previous night.[8][9]

On September 11, 2015, he was traded by the Blackhawks to the Carolina Hurricanes with Kris Versteeg as a salary-cutting measure.[10]
