Nordstrom (face) has returned to Carolina and is expected to be sidelined for “a while.”

Nordstrom was caught near the eye during Tuesday’s game in Boston and is expected to be sidelined for extended period of time. “There’s some pressure on the eye,” head coach Bill Peters said. “[He] dodged a bullet. Vision-wise he’s going to be fine, but he’s going to be a while.”

Nordstorm has been suspended for his hit-from-behind on Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson in Thurday’s win. The hit came late in the third period and forced OEL to miss the final minute of play. OEL also missed practice on Friday and his status for Saturday’s game is in question.

“He’s had a good camp,” coach Joel Quenneville said. “I like his speed. For a young guy, he’s got good instincts both sides of the puck. I thought he did a good job penalty killing in the situations he’s been in. " The Hawks are still looking for someone to replace Michael Frolik as Marcus Kruger’s penalty-killing partner. Nordstrom, a third-round pick in the 2010 draft, killed penalties in the Swedish Elite League for two years before joining Rockford for 11 games last season.
