|Bjork! Bjork! Bjork!|
The good news is that Bjorkstrand is not at all alone on this team, with Sonny Milano, Kerby Rychel there to help him, while TJ Tynan adds the leadership to the group. It is really exciting to see this prospect group performing so well, and they will match up against the Rangers prospects tomorrow.
Because of the depth on the parent club, many of this group will end up playing in Cleveland this year for the Lake Erie Monsters.
These young players are focused on trying to make the NHL squad, but there isn't much room up there, especially for forwards. These things don't play out on paper, they have to play out on the ice, but there is no shame for a prospect being unable to crack this Blue Jackets line up. But for now, this group of young players is looking VERY strong! Which is a great thing for the CBJ down the road. Keep in mind that there are two expansion teams coming into the league over the next couple of years. These players are going to find opportunity soon. They will be best prepared for it with a good year of AHL play under their belt. It's a good time to be a Jackets fan!
