23-Year-Old Left WingLW
Boston Bruins
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bjork has progressed well since undergoing shoulder surgery in January and the 23-year-old is slated to be a full-go for training camp this fall. Before being shut down last season, the 2014 fifth-rounder saw action in 20 games with the Bruins, logging a goal and three points. He fared better at the AHL level, with 10 points in 13 contests for Providence. If he's truly past his shoulder woes, Bjork - who brings skating speed and quick hands to the table - has the necessary skill to make a run at a top-six role with the big club. Read Past Outlooks
$The Bruins signed Bjork to a three-year, entry-level contract in May of 2017.
Headed to AHL
LWBoston Bruins  Minors
September 30, 2019
Bjork has been assigned to AHL Providence.
ANALYSIS
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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
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.
