Playing careerEdit

Norell began playing hockey in Huddinge IK and later moved to Djurgårdens IF to play in the junior organization of the club. Norell signed his first professional contract, a two year deal with Djurgården, for the 2013–14 season. He extended his contract with Djurgården for another season in May 2015.[1] At the completion of the 2015–16 season in the SHL, Norell left Djurgården and signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Chicago Blackhawks on March 31, 2016.[2]

Approaching the final year of his entry-level deal with the Blackhawks having made a limited impact with American Hockey League affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs, Norell opted to return to his native Sweden and re-join Djurgårdens IF on loan for the 2018–19 season on August 23, 2018.[3] During the mid-point of the season, he agreed to a two-year contract extension to remain with Djurgården through 2021 on December 17, 2018.[4] Norell's NHL contract was included in a trade by the Blackhawks, along with Brandon Manning, to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Drake Caggiula and Jason Garrison on December 30, 2018.[5]
