Bjorkstrand registered a goal and an assist to go with a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Lightning to complete the series sweep. Bjorkstrand was instrumental in helping Columbus to its first-ever postseason series win. With two goals and two assists apiece, he's averaging a point per game in the Stanley Cup playoffs, with Bjorkstrand and Co. now awaiting the winner of the Toronto-Boston series.
Bjorkstrand scored a goal and added two assists in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Senators. The 23-year-old sniper was on fire down the stretch as the Jackets pushed for the playoffs, scoring nine goals and 11 points in the last 10 games. Bjorkstrand's 23 goals on the season were a career high, but he'll need to carry that momentum deeper into April if the Jackets are going to advance past a first-round clash with the Lightning.
Bjorkstrand scored his 18th and 19th goals of the season Thursday, in a 6-2 win over the visiting Canadiens. The pair of snipes give Bjorkstrand five goals in his last five games, including four in his last three. The 23-year-old needs just one more for 20, which would be a career first for the youngster. His production has dipped somewhat in 2018-19, after a 40-point campaign a season ago, but Bjorkstrand's big-time performance Thursday came at precisely the perfect moment.
Bjorkstrand scored a goal on five shots and added four PIM and two hits in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Canucks. It was a fairly big night for Bjorkstrand, who is up to 27 points in 70 games this season. More notably, his four PIM doubled his season total to eight. Don't expect the bad boy routine to continue, but he can be a decent depth option in deeper formats.
Bjorkstrand scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Flames. His tally cut the deficit to 3-2 in the third period, but Matthew Tkachuk sealed the win for the Flames with an empty-netter at the end. Bjorkstrand has a career-high 15 goals this season, as well as 11 assists in 68 games. He's on the fourth line currently, but does see some power-play time, averaging 1:19 with the man advantage in March.
