Nordstrom reassigned to Rockford

The Chicago Blackhawks reassigned forward Joakim Nordstrom to the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL on Saturday.

Nordstrom was recalled from the IceHogs on Wednesday because of an injury to Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw. Nordstrom had one assist and a plus-1 rating in two games this week. He has one goal and one assist in 10 games with the Blackhawks this season.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Friday that he expected Shaw to return to the lineup against the Florida Panthers on Sunday.
