CHICAGO (AP) -- The Blackhawks have scratched forward Kris Versteeg for Game 6 of their first-round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues.

Versteeg played in each of the first five playoff games, compiling two assists. He also warmed up before Sunday's game.

Forward Joakim Nordstrom was active for the first time in the postseason.

Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook also returned after he was suspended for the previous three games. With Seabrook active, defenseman Sheldon Brookbank was scratched.
