    As a free agent, Nystrom was unable to attain a NHL contract opting to attend the St. Louis Blues training camp on a professional try-out offer on September 8, 2016.
    More Details Hide Details Nystrom has frequently involved himself with charitable endeavors throughout his career. While with Quad City, he performed an on-ice striptease that mimicked the one performed by the character Ned Braden in the movie Slap Shot as part of a team jersey auction. The event raised $30,000. He served as a player ambassador for the Reading... Give it a Shot! program as a member of the Flames and visited local schools as part of the team's campaign to increase literacy among students. Nystrom is active with Garth Brooks' Teammates for Kids Foundation.
    On June 29, 2016, Nystrom's three-year tenure with the Predators was brought to an end, as he was placed on waivers for the intent to buy-out the remaining year of his contract.

    More Details Hide Details Nystrom chose to leave Calgary as a free agent, signing a three-year, $4.2 million contract with the Minnesota Wild on July 1, 2010. He scored four goals and eight assists in his first season with the Wild, a season which Nystrom admitted was not good, and "snowballed negatively" for him. The 2011–12 season posed early challenges for Nystrom. In a pre-season game against the Edmonton Oilers, his attempt to avoid an icing call resulted in his stick getting caught up in the skates of Edmonton's Taylor Fedun, sending the latter player crashing into the boards at high speed. Fedun suffered a broken leg and the play renewed calls for the NHL to move to no-touch icing to avoid similar incidents in the future. He was waived by Minnesota prior to the season's start, but went unclaimed by any other team and was demoted to the AHL's Houston Aeros, with whom he appeared in one game.
