On Wednesday, the Blackhawks recalled forward Joakim Nordstrom from Rockford.
Nordstrom, 22, started the season with the NHL club before heading to the IceHogs. He has 33 points (17 goals, 16 assists) in 58 AHL games with Rockford this season.
Michal Rozsival returned to practice, but Jonathan Toews was (predictably) absent. UPDATE: Rozsival indicated after practice that he will not play on Thursday night, but a Friday return is possible.
