Anders Bjork has had an eventful weekend.
He played for the Bruins last thursday night against the Senators, was sent back down to Providence to play against the Hershey Bears and Springfield Falcons, then after said break is right back up in Boston again, per Mike Loftus of the Patriot Ledger, and the team release:
Brad Marchand and Noel Acciari are missing from practice this afternoon, as is Charlie McAvoy, who skated on his own before the session.— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) January 29, 2018

Really, this is the best thing for the guy, as he is one of those highly touted rookies the B’s system has been gathering since Sweeney’s taking of the reigns, and for a guy who seems so used to the pro game already, it would do him well to have as much ice time as they can physically give the guy.
He’ll likely slot in as Bergeron’s left wing again when the B’s take on the Ducks tomorrow
