Just got back from the game in Saskatoon. Bjorkstrand had an excellent game...super glad he was rewarded with some points. Some thoughts:
- Not very physical but definitely not afraid (and in fact, very willing) to go to the dirty areas.
- Great shot. I tracked 4 SOG, one of which was a beautiful snipe. Two of the others Makarov had a hard time controlling, which is a good sign for a shooter.
- Great passer. Sometimes tried forcing a play that was't there down low, but all in all he seems to have tremendous vision.
- Very strong on the puck down low; confident while carrying it up ice too.
I'd be curious to hear Mr. Cody Nickolet's thoughts on his game tonight.
