Bruins' Anders Bjork: Inks three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork agreed to terms on a three-year, $4.8 million contract extension with the Bruins on Wednesday.

Bjork appeared in 58 games with Boston during the regular season, notching nine goals and 19 points while averaging 12:56 of ice time per contest. The 23-year-old winger will likely continue to skate on the B's third line at even strength in 2020-21, but he could see an uptick in power-play time next year.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Sees time with top line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork saw time on a trio with center Patrice Bergeron and left wing Brad Marchand during Thursday's skate, Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.

Right wing on the team's top line is usually the domain of David Pastrnak, but he's been termed "unfit to participate" in practice for the time being. It remains to be seen how long he'll be out, but until he returns, the speedy Bjork will be a candidate to move up in the Bruins' lineup. In 58 regular-season games, Bjork logged a modest total of nine goals and 19 points, but the 23-year-old does have the skill and versatility to provide Boston with some needed secondary scoring once NHL game resume.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Ends dry spell with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork notched an assist, three hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 4-3 win over the Flames.

Bjork entered Friday on a six-game point drought, but he picked up a helper on Charlie Coyle's first-period tally. The 23-year-old winger has 19 points, 65 shots and 40 hits through 54 contests this year, his first full campaign with the Bruins.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: On modest three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork notched an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

Bjork has points in his last three outings (one goal, two helpers). He's up to 18 points, 58 shots on goal and a plus-5 rating in 47 games this season. The 23-year-old is having the best year of his young career despite only playing bottom-six minutes.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Points in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork tallied a helper on the opening goal in a 4-0 shutout of the Canucks on Tuesday.

For the fourth time this season, Bjork has recorded points in back-to-back contests, with nine of his 17 total points coming in those performances. Bjork has managed to solidify a role in the Bruins' lineup, but his streaky output may see him scratched if the team decides to add players prior to the trade deadline.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Picks up eighth goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork scored a goal on his only shot and dished out four hits Sunday in a 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh.

Bjork gave the Bruins a 2-0 lead just two minutes into the game, counting his eighth goal of the season and second in the last four games. The 23-year-old Notre Dame product has produced 15 points in 42 games in 2019-20, his first full NHL season.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Two-point night in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork scored a goal and an assist in Monday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Flyers.

The Bruins' second line of David Krejci, Bjork and Jake DeBrusk combined for three goals and six points on the night, but to no avail. This was Bjork's first multi-point performance of the season, and the 23-year-old has a modest seven goals and 14 points through 39 games.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Robbed of second goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork scored a goal and was robbed of a second in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Islanders.

After opening the scoring less than two minutes into the first, Bjork had a golden opportunity in the second period that was snagged out of the air by Islanders' goaltender Semyon Varlamov in spectacular fashion. Bjork has managed to add offensive depth on the Bruins third line this season with five goals and 10 points through 28 games.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Chips in assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork picked up an assist in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

With just over three minutes left in the game, Bjork threw the puck on goal and John Moore put home the rebound to bring the Bruins within one, but the B's were ultimately unable to tie the game. Bjork has played well for Boston, but offense has been hard to come by, as he's only scored five goals and nine points in 25 games. He's still exempt from waivers, so he may end up back with AHL Providence once Kevan Miller (kneecap) and Karson Kuhlman (leg) return from injury.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Cashes in on breakaway
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork scored his fourth goal of the season in an 8-1 blowout of Montreal on Tuesday.

Sean Kuraly forced a turnover and backhanded a pass to Bjork, who took it in alone and scored the goal that knocked Carey Price out of the game. Bjork has added the goal-scoring depth the Bruins were looking for with five points in 16 games.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Sneaks one home on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork scored his third goal of the season in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Panthers on Tuesday.

Bjork's goal put the Bruins up by three, but the Panthers would come all the way back from 4-0 to win in a shootout. With three goals through 10 games, Bjork is poised to surpass his career-high four goals he scored in 2017-18. With the B's in need of offensive talent on the wings, Bjork will likely stay in the NHL for the remainder of the season barring any new additions to the team.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Slips home goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork picked up his second goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Canadiens.

The goal leveled the game at 3-3 for 42 seconds before Victor Mete scored his second of the game to give the Canadiens back the lead. Bjork was on the ice for all three Bruins goals at even strength and fired a team-high six shots on goal in the contest.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Scores goal against Blues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Blues.

Though Bjork only saw 8:51 worth of ice time in his second game of the season with the big club, the 2014 fifth-rounder used his speed effectively Saturday and doesn't look like a player who's headed back to the minors in short order. The 23-year-old worked on the B's third line against the Blues, but if he continues to look sharp, we wouldn't be surprised if Bjork sees some top-six work down the road, as the team is still looking to solidify its second line. Bjork's last two seasons were cut short by shoulder woes, but now that he's healthy and has a chance to see action for Boston, it looks like the Notre Dame product could emerge as a fantasy sleeper in his third season as a pro.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Recalled on emergency basis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork was recalled on an emergency basis Friday by the Bruins.

The team is expected to be without David Krejci (upper body) against the Blues on Saturday. Bjork was skating on the third line with Charlie Coyle and Danton Heinen in Friday's practice, so that's likely where he'll deployed against St. Louis.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Demoted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork was reassigned to AHL Providence on Wednesday as a salary cap savings, but he could be recalled ahead of Saturday's matchup with St. Louis, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

In his first game of the year, Bjork notched four shots, one hit and one block in 13:17 of action versus Toronto on Tuesday. The Bruins are hard up against the cap and could use a few days of savings by dropping the winger down to the minors. The health of Joakim Nordstrom could impact whether Bjork plays Saturday, though the 23-year-old may play regardless.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork was called up from AHL Providence on Tuesday.

Bjork slotted into a fourth-line role at practice, per Matt Porter of The Boston Globe, and figures to be in the lineup versus the Maple Leafs on Tuesday. The Wisconsin native has been lighting the AHL on fire with three goals and five helpers through seven contests. With David Krejci (upper body) heading onto IR, Bjork stands a decent chance of securing an extended look in Boston.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Off to strong start for Providence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Through his first four games with AHL Providence this season, Bjork has recorded two goals and five points.

Bjork had a strong preseason, but with solid depth up front, the Bruins elected to send the 23-year-old to the minors, where he could log ample ice time. Bjork's strong start, however, could lead to a call-up before long.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Headed to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork has been assigned to AHL Providence.

The speedy forward had a strong preseason, but with the Bruins boasting good depth up front, he'll head to the minors for now, where he'll see ample ice time out of the gate this season. Once injuries or slumps hit the big club, however, we expect Bjork to earn a recall. Additionally, it's plausible that as the season rolls along, the skilled winger could end up working in a top-six role for Boston at some point.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Expected to start season in AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork is expected to begin the season with AHL Providence, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Bjork, whose last two seasons were derailed by shoulder surgeries, actually had a strong training camp/preseason, but this anticipated move would be made in the name of getting the speedy young forward some high-leverage ice time out of the gate this season. If Bjork continues to play the way he has of late and gets his scoring mojo back at the AHL level, an in-season call-up would seem inevitable.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Looking good in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork, who has had his last two seasons cut short due to shoulder issues, is "looking healthy and strong during camp," Joe McDonald of The Athletic reports.

Bjork is making a serious run at opening the season with the big club and in that scenario it's likely he'd man left wing on the Bruins' third line, centered by Charlie Coyle. It's even possible that the 23-year-old ascends to second-line duty at some point, but staying healthy, while not shying away from the physicality of the pro game is probably the speedy/skilled Bjork's biggest challenge with regard to making an impact in Boston this season.
