When playing basketball at Dawson-Boyd High School in Minnesota, in 1991 Nordgaard became the first player in Minnesota state history to achieve a quadruple double. After playing college basketball at the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay, Nordgaard was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round of the 1996 NBA Draft. He began his professional career in Europe, spending the 1996-97 season with two clubs, Dijon (France) and Patronato Bilbao (Spain 2nd). The following season, he briefly played for the Bucks before finishing the season with the CBA's Fort Wayne Fury.

Nordgaard then returned to Europe, first going to Viola Reggio Calabria in Italy for the 1998-99 season, where he was a teammate of future NBA star Manu Ginobili. The next season, he returned to France with Besançon. Nordgaard briefly returned to America in 2000 with the Indiana Legends in the ABA before he signed a contract that brought him back to France with Chalon.

In 2001, Nordgaard went to Poland, joining Anwil Włocławek. He then moved to Polonia Warsaw in 2003. Nordgaard was especially well-traveled in the 2004-05 season, first returning to Italy to play for Roseto, transferring to Greek power Olympiacos, and finally ending the season back at Polonia. The following year, he signed with another Polish club, Prokom Trefl Sopot, and stayed there through the 2006-07 season. Nordgaard moved to AZS Koszalin for the 2007-08 season and decided to stay for the 2008-2009 season.
