Patrick Bjorkstrand, RW: 8 GP, 0 G, 2 A.
Few would have thought that the Danish national team player would bring such an impact to the team. Primarily seen by many just as a necessary signing to satisfy the required number of U-22 players on the roster, he slowly started proving everyone wrong as soon as training camp started. Bjorkstrand has just excelled in these 8 games making excellent use of his ice time. He found a way to contribute in each line he was put in (and he has been moved around a lot, having played on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th line). Bjorkstrand has a high hockey IQ, great hands and on ice vision which make him valuable in a more offensive role, but also has the speed, grittiness and physicality required to play bottom six duties. He was heavily relied upon on the penalty kill, establishing himself as a main stay on the 2nd PK unit (quite a lot of responsibilities for a 21-year-old). Hard to knock of the puck and showing maturity way beyond his age, we are exited to see how he will contribute in the future.

Grade: A+
