Anders Bjork has been looking to get his feet back underneath him after some struggles in his first professional season. This isn’t going to help.

Ouch. It looked like Francois Beauchemin of the Anaheim Ducks was trying to clamp down on Bjork with his stick, and Bjork took the stick right in the arm.

He was doubled over as he left the ice, and needed to be helped down the tunnel.

It’s clearly an upper-body injury; the only question is whether it’s his arm or midsection/ribs.

It certainly doesn’t LOOK like he’s going to return, but we’ll keep you posted.
