The Blackhawks have recalled Joakim Nordstrom from Rockford (AHL).

Nordstrom has likely been recalled to replace Jonathan Toews, who was injured on Sunday. There has been no word on how long Toews will be out, but Nordstrom will fill-in for the meantime. Nordstrom has 17 goals and 16 assists (33 points) with a plus-9 rating in 58 games with Rockford.

“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.
