The Boston Bruins were finally healthy... It did not last long.
The team has just confirmed that forward Anders Bjork will undergo his second shoulder surgery and will be out for five to six months.
The Bruins revealed that the 22-year-old underwent a successful surgery on his left shoulder, performed by Dr. JP Warner at Massachusetts General Hospital. His season is consequently over.
Bjork underwent season-ending shoulder surgery last February and the story has repeated itself this year.
The speedy forward was a call-up candidate on several occasions this season, and was expected to be one down the road until the end of the regular calendar, however this serious injury is getting him back in recovery. He will eventually have to re-prove his health and get back into a scoring groove in the American Hockey League before he suits up for the Bruins again.
In 20 games with the Bruins this season, Bjork collected a goal and three points. In 13 contests with the team's affiliate in Providence, he recorded a goal and 10 points.
