Top Anders Bjork News

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Earns rare helper

    Bjork added an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Islanders.

    Bjork has been relegated to a fourth-line role, which is a stark contrast to last season, when the Sabres granted him 17:02 of average ice time over 15 games after he arrived from the Bruins in the Taylor Hall trade. He'll face his former club in Boston on Thursday.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Returns from protocols

    Bjork cleared COVID-19 protocols and returned to practice Sunday, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    The winger had been in virus protocols since Tuesday. Bjork, who has five points in 29 games this season but only one in his last 16, figures to enter the lineup Tuesday versus Tampa Bay.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Bjork was designated for the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday.

    Bjork has averaged 11:54 of ice time and logged one goal through his last 10 appearances this season. His absence will have minimal impact in most fantasy circles as he primarily fills a bottom-six role.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Set to play against Devils

    Bjork (illness) was in attendance for the Sabres' game-day skate ahead of their matchup with New Jersey on Wednesday, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

    Considering Bjork has just one point in his last 13 games, his return to the lineup is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players. The Wisconsin native figures to remain in a bottom-six role and will offer limited fantasy value the rest of the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Still out Friday

    Bjork (illness) will not play Friday versus the Penguins.

    Bjork was a game-time decision for Thursday's game, but he didn't receive that designation Friday with the Sabres in the second half of a back-to-back. The 25-year-old's next chance to return from his two-game absence is Monday versus the Blue Jackets.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Not available Thursday

    Bjork (illness) did not take warmups and won't play Thursday versus the Wild, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Bjork was deemed a game-time decision entering Thursday. With Bjork out, Mark Jankowski will enter the lineup in a bottom-six role. It's unclear if Bjork will be able to get healthy in time for Friday's game versus the Penguins.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Game-time call Thursday

    Bjork isn't feeling well and has been labeled a game-time decision ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Wild, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Bjork snapped a 12-game point drought his last time out, scoring a goal Tuesday in Winnipeg. Those interested in rostering the 25-year-old should check back in during pregame warmups starting around 7:30 p.m. EST to see if he's playing.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Goals in back-to-back games

    Bjork scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Oilers.

    Bjork has goals in back-to-back games after he managed just one assist in the previous 10 contests. The 25-year-old hasn't been able to earn more than bottom-six minutes with the Sabres so far. He has four points, 17 shots on net and a plus-1 rating in 13 appearances.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Nets first goal since Opening Night

    Bjork scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 5-3 loss to Washington.

    Bjork crashed the net and knocked home his own rebound, capping a wild scramble in the Washington zone to pull the Sabres to within 3-2 early in the third period. It was Bjork's second goal of the year, and his first since the season opener.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Scores in big win

    Bjork scored a goal in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Canadiens.

    Playing against the 2021 Stanley Cup runner-ups, the Sabres dominated the entire game. The 25-year-old added insult to injury to the Habs, giving his team a three-goal lead when Bjork followed up on a Zemgus Girgensons shot on goal to score the Sabres' fourth of the night with just 55 seconds left in the second period. The former Boston Bruin had just six points in 15 games for the Sabres last season.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Keys comeback victory

    Bjork scored twice on three shots and added a pair of hits in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Islanders. He also accounted for the shootout winner.

    The Sabres were staring down a 3-1 deficit late in the second period when Bjork deflected Colin Miller's point shot to make it a one-goal game. Bjork added his second of the night midway through the final frame, beating Ilya Sorokin with a wrister from the right dot after keeping the play alive at the New York blue line. He finished off the Buffalo rally when he beat Sorokin again during the shootout. Bjork's two-goal outburst snapped his six-game point drought and gave him six points in 13 contests since being acquired from Boston.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Off to good start for new squad

    Bjork registered a goal and an assist with two shots and two PIM in Thursday's 5-2 win over Washington.

    Bjork picked up both of his points during the second period, setting up Casey Mittelstadt's short-handed tally 5:42 into the frame, then scoring his first goal as a Sabre on a one-timer from the left circle just over eight minutes later. Bjork already has three points in two games with Buffalo after posting just five in 30 contests for the Bruins.

  • Sabres' Anders Bjork: Packing bags for Buffalo

    Bjork was traded from Boston with a second-round pick to Buffalo in exchange for Taylor Hall and Curtis Lazar on Sunday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Bjork has five points in 30 games with Boston this season but has been a healthy scratch for the last five games. The 24-year-old tallied nine goals and 19 points in the NHL last season. He should see more playing time in Buffalo's bottom six.

  • Bruins' Anders Bjork: Tallies versus Rangers

    Bjork scored a goal and added two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers.

    Bjork potted his first goal of the season at the nine-minute mark of the third period. The 24-year-old winger has added two assists, a plus-3 rating and 15 hits in 12 contests this season. Bjork will typically operate in a bottom-six role, especially now that Jake DeBrusk is back from a lower-body injury. Fantasy managers can leave Bjork on the waiver wire.

  • Bruins' Anders Bjork: Records helper Thursday

    Bjork notched an assist in 15:21 worth of ice time in the Bruins' 4-1 win over the Penguins on Thursday.

    Bjork, who logged 1:43 worth of shorthanded ice time in the contest, looked very sharp while playing on the Bruins' fourth line with Sean Kuraly and Chris Wagner. Given how effective the trio was, look for the unit to stick together for the time being. Bjork's helper Thursday was his first point of the season (in seven games), but if the 24-year-old winger continues to use his wheels as effectively as he did against Pittsburgh, added scoring chances should follow.

  • Bruins' Anders Bjork: Third-line duty on tap

    Bjork is slated to play left wing on the Bruins' third line Monday against the Islanders, Eric Russo of the team's official site reports.

    The Bruins continue to shuffle their top nine up front, so Bjork, who saw some first-line duty in Saturday's loss to New Jersey, will now see action on a trio with Charlie Coyle and Craig Smith. It remains to be seen, however, if that's where he stays, especially given all the moving parts in what will be a unique NHL season. Two games into the campaign, Bjork has logged just one shot and zero points, but the 24-year-old does bring some offensive upside to the mix, thanks to his good wheels and solid puck skills.

  • Bruins' Anders Bjork: Top line duty awaits

    Bjork will work on the Bruins' top line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron in Saturday's game against New Jersey.

    Jack Studnicka handled that role in Thursday's season opener, but with Craig Smith (lower body) in line to return to the third-line mix Saturday, Bjork will have an opportunity to move up in the lineup. Bjork brings skating speed and quick hands to the B's top trio and if he can mesh well with Marchand and Bergeron, there's some fantasy upside to be had with the 24-year-old winger.

  • Bruins' Anders Bjork: Could move up in the lineup

    Bjork saw work on a line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron during Friday's practice.

    As did Jack Studnicka, who worked on the Bruins' first line in Thursday's season opener. That said, Bjork, who showed some spark while logging 13:56 worth of ice time in the contest working on the third line, could potentially ascend to the team's top line Saturday against New Jersey, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports. Per Conor Ryan of, such an outcome could hinge on the status of Craig Smith (lower body), who Bjork subbed in for Thursday.

  • Bruins' Anders Bjork: Moves up to third line

    Bjork is slated to work on the Bruins' third line Thursday night against New Jersey, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

    Bjork had been slated to see fourth-line duty out of the gate, but with Craig Smith dealing with a lower-body injury, he'll open the season on a trio with Charlie Coyle and Nick Ritchie. It's an assignment that gives Bjork a bit more fantasy upside, but he's still a speculative lineup option in Boston's season opener.
