Coming into October, Anders Bjork had a lot to prove. Notre Dame alum, Anders Bjork was a stranger to good luck his first two seasons. Both seasons would end with unfortunate shoulder injuries. The 2019-20 season was much different.
Bjork had put on a considerable amount of weight over the offseason. It appeared that he knew bulking up was essential to his success in the NHL. His season started in Providence. He got the call-up to Boston in October, which I, a self proclaimed Anders Bjork stan was in attendance for.
In 59 games, Bjork amassed 19 points. Nine goals and ten assists for the 23 year old was enough to keep him on the Boston roster, even though he ended up in Bruce Cassidy’s dog house right before the pause.
Sure when you trade for players, they need a spot in the line up. However, there were a few others that Bjork can play in front of on a consistent basis.
When talking to the media on Wednesday, Bjork discussed his journey through his first healthy season.
“I think my game wasn’t exactly where it needed to be right before this pause,” so I have time now to try to work on it as much as I can. That’s definitely helped me stay motivated, kept me working out and training through all this.”
Anders Bjork is doing hill repeats on rollerblades. That does not sound like a fun workout.

Speed is one of the most important elements to Bjork’s game and it appears that he is still working on it.
Anders Bjork: "What's going on in the world right now is a lot bigger than hockey."

This is a nice reminder since some people seem to forget this.
“I feel like I gotta put my work in to earn my spot back. That’s the culture on the team for sure”

At least he’s aware.
Anders Bjork is going to come back with a vengeance when the season resumes. With his roster spot essentially gone, he has got to prove that he deserves to be in Boston and not ending his season early once again.
