    Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Prospect will return to AHL lineup Friday

    Bjorkstrand will return for the AHL Monsters on Friday after missing the past 18 games with an upper-body injury. Bjorkstrand was Columbus' third-round (89th overall) draft selection in 2013. He has immense offensive talent, amassing 144 goals and 146 assists between three campaigns with the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL between 2012-15. Now healthy, Bjorkstrand can continue to develop his game in the minors with hopes of landing an NHL role sooner than later.
