Sabres' Anders Bjork: Keys comeback victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 MassLive.com, 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bruins' Anders Bjork: Working on fourth line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjork skated on the Bruins' fourth line during Wednesday's practice.

Heading into the season, it looks like Bjork will work on the left side of a trio that also includes Sean Kuraly and Chris Wagner. It's an initial slotting that limits Bjork's fantasy upside in the short term, but there's a chance that the skilled 24-year-old moves up in the B's lineup as the season rolls along, with a good amount of roster/line shuffling likely to occur.

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.
