Three-game point streak for Bjork

Anders Bjork has been one of Providence’s best forwards so far this season. Most think it’s almost a matter of time before Boston calls him up.

Bjork had an assist on the game-tying goal against Laval, and this extended his points streak to three games. In those three games, Bjork had two goals and two assists.

Bjork now has six points in five games this season for Providence. He’ll look to continue his hot start this weekend.

One reason for Bjork’s play this year is his role on the left wing. In his two stints in Boston, Bjork played primarily on the right side. Mark Divver notes that this switch looks like it made a big difference.

The Bruins look set on the left wing, but right wing remains an issue. Bjork seems like the easy fix.

That said, Divver alludes to how it won’t be the smartest move for Boston to call up Bjork and move him back to the right wing. Instead, since he looks comfortable in that role, Bjork needs to stay on the left side.

Bjork is one of Boston’s best forward prospects, and he remains a big part of the future and soon the present. That is, as long as Boston continues to put him in the best position to succeed.
