Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Could benefit from shutdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand (ankle) could be ready to rejoin the Blue Jackets' lineup once the NHL schedule resumes, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports.

The winger underwent ankle surgery Mar. 3 and was given an 8-to-10 week recovery estimate, which would have cost him the rest of the regular season and potentially a round or two of the playoffs. With the league shut down, however, Bjorkstrand figures to get enough time to heal up and be ready to rejoin his teammates when action resumes. The 24-year-old was having a career-best season when he got hurt, scoring 21 goals and 36 points through 49 games.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Undergoes ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand had surgery Monday to repair his fractured ankle and will miss 8-to-10 weeks.

The Blue Jackets would need to make a deep playoff run in order for Bjorkstrand to get back into the lineup, possibly as far as the Stanley Cup Finals. Prior to getting hurt, the Dane was riding a six-game point streak, during which he racked up four goals and three helpers. Despite the injuries this season, the winger put together a second straight 20-goal campaign and will miss the 40-point mark by just four tallies.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Out for rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand suffered a fractured ankle in Thursday's loss to the Flyers and will be out for 8-10 weeks, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

The injury is similar to the one Seth Jones sustained earlier this season. Bjorkstrand will miss the rest of the regular season as a result, and even if the Jackets make the playoffs, the projected timetable for his recovery wouldn't have him available for the first round at the very least. The 24-year-old winger, who's undoubtedly headed for injured reserve, will finish up the regular-season campaign with 21 goals and 36 points in 49 games.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Suffers injury scare
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand (undisclosed) left Thursday's loss to the Flyers in the third period and didn't return, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

Bjorkstrand appeared to get his leg caught underneath him while sailing into the end boards in the third period and immediately hobbled to the locker room. The 24-year-old was outstanding in the game before exiting, scoring the game's first goal and adding an even-strength assist in the first period. The Blue Jackets can hardly afford another lengthy injury, as they currently have a whopping nine players residing on injured reserve. Per Brian Hedger of NHL.com, Bjorkstrand was seen leaving the arena in a boot and on crutches. Look for an update regarding Bjorkstrand's status ahead of Saturday's road clash with Nashville.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Only offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Flyers.

The 24-year-old winger is essentially the only consistent source of offense the Jackets have right now. Bjorkstrand has a five-game point streak going (three goals, two helpers), and Tuesday's tally put him at 20 goals for the second straight season.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Finds twine again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand scored the Blue Jackets' only goal in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Rangers.

The 24-year-old got his stick on the puck in a scrum and flipped a backhand over Alexandar Georgiev's shoulder late in the second period. Bjorkstrand continues to roll, and in 10 games since returning from a rib injury he has seven goals on 28 shots and nine total points.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Provides helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand notched an assist, three hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

Bjorkstrand has points in his last eight appearances, a run interrupted by a month-long absence due a rib injury. In that span, he has 10 goals and three assists. The Dane is up to 29 points, 136 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 40 games. Despite the lost time, he should exceed his career high of 40 points from 2017-18.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand now has four goals in two games since returning from a rib injury. The Danish winger is up to 16 goals and 27 points with 131 shots on goal in 38 contests. Fantasy owners will want the 24-year-old active when the Blue Jackets return to action Feb. 1 versus the Sabres.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Fuels comeback with two goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand (rib/oblique) scored both goals in a 2-1 win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Bjorkstrand missed 13 games with the injury, but he made an instant impact in his return. His two tallies in the third period, including one in the final minute, helped to secure Matiss Kivlenieks' first win. Bjorkstrand also fired a team-high six shots on goal in the contest. He was on fire prior to getting injured, with five goals and two assists in the previous four games. He's at 25 points, 128 shots and a plus-2 rating in 37 appearances this season.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Returns from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jackets reinstated Bjorkstrand (rib/oblique) from injured reserve Saturday.

The 24-year-old wing will likely check back into the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers -- the second of a back-to-back set for the Blue Jackets -- after the rib/oblique injury caused him to miss Columbus' last 13 games. Prior to suffering the injury in a Dec. 21 contest, Bjorkstrand led Columbus with 12 goals and ranked third on the team with 23 points.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Participates in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand (ribs) returned to practice Monday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

Bjorkstrand won't be ready for Tuesday's game versus the Bruins, according to Portzline, but he's aiming to return before the All-Star break. The Blue Jackets are dealing with a plethora of injuries, so if Bjorkstrand could return early, it'd be a major boost. The 24-year-old winger had 12 goals and 23 points over 36 games before getting hurt.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Out 4-6 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand (rib) was placed on injured reserve Sunday and will miss the next 4-6 weeks.

Bjorkstrand was injured during Saturday's win over the Devils when he took a hard cross-check. The 24-year-old winger has 12 goals and 23 points in 36 games this season. His timeline suggests he'll be out until at least late January.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Will sit out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand (undisclosed) won't travel for Monday's game against the Islanders, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

The Blue Jackets' forward corps was already battered, and Bjorkstrand added himself to the walking wounded after suffering an undisclosed injury in Saturday's win over the Devils. There's no clear timeline for Bjorkstrand's return, but he'll aim to re-enter the lineup Friday against the Capitals.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Exits early Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand suffered an undisclosed injury in the third period of Saturday's game versus the Devils, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

Bjorkstrand appeared to take a cross check and had to leave the game. He scored the Blue Jackets' first two goals and added five shots in the 5-1 win. With eight points in 10 games in December, Columbus fans and fantasy owners alike will hope this is just a minor injury and not something that will keep the Denmark native sidelined for long.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Two-point effort against Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Red Wings.

The 24-year-old winger scored his 10th goal of the season midway through the first period thanks to a dazzling backhand pass from Gustav Nyquist, then Bjorkstrand returned the favor in the third to set up Nyquist's empty-netter. After managing only one goal over the prior seven games, Bjorkstrand has now collected three goals and four points over the last two nights.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Lights lamp twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand scored two goals in Monday's 3-0 win over the Capitals.

Both were third-period insurance markers -- Bjorkstrand tipped home a Gustav Nyquist pass just 32 seconds after intermission, then scooped up the puck in the neutral zone and beat Braden Holtby on a partial breakaway about eight minutes later. It's the 24-year-old winger's first multi-goal game of the year, and Bjorkstrand now has nine goals and 18 points through 33 games.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Posts helper on opening goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand registered an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

Bjorkstrand saw a shot attempt in the first period deflect off Gustav Nyquist and into the net behind Tristan Jarry. The Danish winger extended his point streak to six games and nine points with the helper. Bjorkstrand has 15 points and 69 shots on goal in 25 contests this season. While he's known for being a bit streaky, his current scoring pace has him on track to top his career high of 40 points that he set in 2017-18.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Provides only offense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand scored the only goal in Monday's 1-0 win over the Senators.

His hand-eye coordination was on full display, as Bjorkstrand tipped a chest-high wrister off the point from Zach Werenski into the back of the net. The fifth-year winger is red hot, scoring two goals and seven points in the last four games, but on the season Bjorkstrand has only 13 points (six goals, seven helpers) in 23 contests.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

That's three straight games in which Bjorkstrand has registered two points. He helped set up power-play goals by Pierre-Luc Dubois and Gustav Nyquist on Saturday for his fifth multi-point game of November. Bjorkstrand, 24, scored a career-high 23 goals a year ago and seems to be heating up again.

Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Keys third-period comeback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjorkstrand scored a power-play goal and added an assist at even strength in Thursday's 5-4 win over Detroit.

Bjorkstrand's two points came in a 1:03 span, as Columbus turned a 3-2 deficit into a 4-3 lead in the blink of an eye in the third period. With five goals in 21 games, Bjorkstrand's on pace to come up a few goals short of last season's 23.
