Boston Bruins Eyeing Bjork With Bergeron-Marchand

Published

on

With fans getting excited for rookie Anders Bjork, the craze surrounding the forward has picked up even more. Bjrok’s impact or role on this years squad hasn’t been truly clear heading into camp, but two-days in and it appears a top 6 role is in his future.

Boston Bruins head coach, Bruce Cassidy, believes that Bjork will fit right into a top line featuring Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. While that seems like a tall task, Cassidy believes that Bjork has the skill to be there.

“He’s got a history of scoring at the collegiate level,” Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy said when asked why he believes Bjork can be a fit with the Bergeron-Marchand combination. “He’s got pace to his game. Those are two things right off the bat.”

B’s camp just started this past Thursday. That means there is still a ton of time for things to develop. But Cassidy believes that Bjork is the type of player that is open to fitting the Bergeron-Marchand playstyle.

“Getting to know him as a person, I think he’s receptive to two those type of players,” Cassidy continued. “We’re hoping he can keep his identity as a player with what he’s developed so far in his young career, and do the things he needs to do to be successful, but also work with those guys and respect what they’re trying to do.”

If Cassidy is penciling in Bjork with Bergeron and Marchand. That likely means David Pastrnak, David Krejci, and David Backes will be the line right behind them. That, of course, follows the logic of using Backes as a wing instead of the third line center position.

With Bjork though, he still has a lot to prove to the team and will have to earn a spot on the roster let alone the prestigious first line with two all-star caliber players.

Boston Bruins Already Having Injury Problem

Bruins Injury Updates Have Begun

Today GM Don Sweeney has given an update on a few injured players.

Matt Beleskey who which is not a big deal since he might not even make the team is day-to-day with a foot contusion. This happened is the B’s last preseason game against the Montreal Canadiens

Jakub Forsbacka Karlsson is day-to-day as well with an upper-body injury that he received in the game against Detroit on September 19th. Hopefully, this is nothing because he was a kid that was slotted to make a roster spot.

Last is Torrey Krug who will be out for at least three weeks pending a re-evaluation at that time. He was hit in the jaw with the puck and suffered a non-displaced fracture. It occurred in the game against Detroit.

Also on another note, the team has sent Jack Studnicka and Kyle Keyser back to the OHL.

The biggest injury is with JFK, now some may say Krug but I think the B’s can find a replacement for him. McAvoy will most likely take over on the power play and maybe this opens the door for a guy like Rob O’Gara or Matt Grzelcyk. Other than these few hiccups Boston should be a fun team to watch this season. Especially if they stay as young as they have in camp and the preseason games.

Bruins Grab First Win Of The Preseason

Boston took on the Canadiens last night in Quebec City and came out with a victory. Last nights team was all about the kids. Unfortnitally the game was not aired on TV in Boston. the Bruins defeated Montreal 3-2.

From what I have read from people that saw the game is that the kids were very impressive. Tim Schaller, Anders Bjork, and Jesse Gabrielle were the goal scorers. As the whole, the team seems like they are in a good spot to be competitive this season. Especially with all of the prospects on the roster that are eyeing a spot in the big club.

The most impressive was last years NCAA Hobey Baker Finalist Anders Bjork. Bjork scored his first goal in a Bruins uniform last night. Also, the word on the street is that his chemistry with the team is growing. Look for him to grab a top-six spot on the roster heading into the season.

Here is Anders Bjork on his first goal in. A very hockey guy answer:
