The Bruins made the roster move many fans have been seeking, recalling Anders Bjork from Providence on an emergency basis.

Bjork will take the roster spot of David Krejci, who was placed on injured reserve this morning.

With Karson Kuhlman, Joakim Nordstrom, and Par Lindholm all varying degrees of "banged up," it seems likely that Bjork finds his way into the lineup tonight.

With Krejci out, it probably makes sense to play Charlie Coyle at 2C again and let Bjork play as his right wing.

However, they could also elect to put Bjork back with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron, which is where he was to start last season.

The possibilities are endless!

Bjork leads the Providence Bruins with 3 goals and 5 assists in 7 games.
