2018 Fantasy Outlook
Bjork is bouncing back from February shoulder surgery but is expected to be ready for training camp. The 2014 fifth-rounder broke in with the B's last season, following a stellar three-year stint at Notre Dame. In the process, he logged four goals and 12 points in 30 games, while displaying flashes of speed, quick hands and a well-rounded game. At 6-foot, 186 pounds, the second-year pro will need to prove that he's up for the physical rigors of the NHL game before he secures a key role with the Bruins, but we're not betting against him. In fact, Bjork could make a run at a top-six role this season. Third-line duty could also be on tap, but either way, the 22-year-old has a chance to make a splash if he can stay healthy.

Breaks scoreless streak
CBoston Bruins
November 12, 2018
Bjork snapped a 10-game scoring drought with an assist Sunday during a 4-1 win over the Golden Knights.
ANALYSIS
The new Bruins third line of Danton Heinen, Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson and Bjork was impressive in its weekend debut. On top of the goal during Sunday's win, Bjork rang two off the post as he came close to scoring his second goal of the season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Selected in the fifth round of the 2014 NHL Draft, Bjork is coming off a stellar effort in his junior year at Notre Dame, in which he logged 21 goals and 52 points in 39 games, helping the Fighting Irish earn a spot in the NCAA Frozen Four. While he wasn't a high-profile selected when the Bruins called his name, Bjork's impressive on-ice development since then has vaulted him into a position where he has a legit chance to secure a top-six role on the wing for the Bruins right out of the gate this coming season. The 21-year-old brings skating speed, quick hands and a well-rounded game to the table, but at 5-foot-11, 183 pounds, he'll need to prove that he's up for the physical rigors of the pro game. Based on his strong preseason, Bjork now appears poised to claim the Bruins' first line right wing spot on a trio with accomplished veterans Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.
