RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Oliver Bjorkstrand.
Bjorkstrand had a huge season for the Portland Winterhawks (50 goals and 109 points in 69 games) skating alongside Jets prospect Nicolas Petan, but Bjorkstrand’s small stature means he will need to keep getting stronger and prove himself on every rung of the ladder before he'll get a shot at the NHL. The offensive talent and hockey sense are there for him to make an impact down the road.
Undersized prospect Bjorkstrand has the offensive talent and two-way game to someday make the NHL, but he's a long way away.
