  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Earns helper against old team

    Bjorkstrand notched an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Bjorkstrand intercepted a clearance from the Blue Jackets and set up Eeli Tolvanen for the Kraken's third goal. With two goals and two assists over his last three outings, Bjorkstrand has rounded into form again. He's up to 26 points, 126 shots on net, 38 hits, 29 blocked shots and a plus-9 rating through 49 contests. He's well off the pace that saw him rack up 28 goals and 57 points in 80 contests last season, but he's still on pace to top the 40-point mark for the fourth time in his career.

    Bjorkstrand logged an assist in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.

Over his last 11 contests, Bjorkstrand has four goals, four assists, 31 shots and a plus-5 rating. The Kraken's third line was the only one that went untouched as head coach Dave Hakstol mixed things up to account for Matty Beniers' (upper body) absence Friday. Bjorkstrand has nine goals, 16 helpers, 125 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 48 outings.

    Bjorkstrand scored two goals on four shots and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Canucks.

    Bjorkstrand opened the scoring on a rebound in the first period and added another tally for good measure in the second. He snapped a four-game point drought with his first two-goal game with the Kraken.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Slings assist Thursday

    Bjorkstrand posted an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Bruins.

    Bjorkstrand got the puck to Eeli Tolvanen in the slot, who blasted in the Kraken's second goal late in the second period. This was Bjorkstrand's second assist in as many games, and he's up to four points through seven contests in January. The winger has 20 points, 104 shots on net, 32 hits, 27 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 41 outings. While he's been on the third line lately, the Kraken's offense is humming with contributions from all parts of the lineup, so Bjorkstrand should maintain some fantasy value in deeper formats.

    Bjorkstrand notched an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.

    Bjorkstrand helped out on linemate Yanni Gourde's equalizer in the second period. While not a central contributor in the Kraken's six-game winning streak, Bjorkstrand has earned two goals, one assist and a plus-5 rating in that span. The 27-year-old winger is up to 19 points, 102 shots, 30 hits and a plus-6 rating through 40 contests overall.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Opens scoring in blowout win

    Bjorkstrand scored a goal on four shots in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Senators.

    Bjorkstrand has three goals and a helper over his last seven contests. Those three tallies represent half of his goal total this season, but it appears the 27-year-old is starting to trend in the right direction. He's up to 18 points, 98 shots, 30 hits, 26 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through 38 appearances overall, mainly in a middle-six role.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Deposits goal Sunday

    Bjorkstrand scored a goal on four shots and blocked three shots in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Islanders.

    Bjorkstrand scored on a rebound at 13:04 of the second period. The winger had a rough December, logging just one goal and three assists over 12 contests, so this is an encouraging start to January. His prolonged scoring slump has seen him drop into a middle-six role lately, though he remains in the mix for power-play time, which could be key to him turning things around. Bjorkstrand has five goals, 17 points, 92 shots on net, 26 hits, 26 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through 35 outings.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Nets second-period tally

    Bjorkstrand scored a goal and drew an assist during a 6-5 shootout loss to the host Canucks on Thursday.

    Bjorkstrand, who notched his first tally since Nov. 29, was finally rewarded for his strong recent efforts. The 27-year-old right winger registered five shots against the Blues on Tuesday, his most since he generated six shots in back-to-back games Oct. 21-23. Bjorkstrand, who gave the Kraken a 2-1, second-period lead Thursday, turned in another six-shot performance and added a plus-2 rating in 16:22 of ice time.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Lends helper Sunday

    Bjorkstrand recorded an assist and three shots on goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Panthers.

    Bjorkstrand made a pass to Yanni Gourde before going off for a line change. One pass later, Andre Burakovsky scored a go-ahead goal midway through the second period. The helper was Bjorkstrand's second in the last three games, but he hasn't scored in five December outings. For the season, the 27-year-old winger is at 14 points, 68 shots, a minus-1 rating, 20 blocked shots and 19 hits in 27 appearances.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Sets up Wright's first goal

    Bjorkstrand notched an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Canadiens.

    Bjorkstrand set up Shane Wright's first NHL goal at 15:30 of the first period. The helper was also Bjorkstrand's first point in three games, but he saw a season-low 10:08 of ice time. He's been slipping down the lineup lately, playing on the third line in recent contests amid an inconsistent run on offense. The 27-year-old winger has three goals, 10 assists, 64 shots and a minus-1 rating through 25 outings.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Lights lamp Tuesday

    Bjorkstrand scored a goal and added two PIM in Tuesday's 9-8 overtime win over the Kings.

    Bjorkstrand capitalized on a turnover to create the game's first multi-goal lead -- at 7-5. The 27-year-old has struggled with finishing for much of the year, but he has two goals and an assist over his last four contests. He's up to three goals, 12 points, 60 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating in 22 outings overall.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Provides helper

    Bjorkstrand notched an assist in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Ducks.

    Bjorkstrand found Vince Dunn wide open for the Kraken's third tally late in the first period. The assist was Bjorkstrand's second points in his last five games. The winger is up to two goals, nine helpers, 59 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 21 contests, but he's struggling to be consistently goal-dangerous while playing in a third-line role.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Ends lengthy goal drought

    Bjorkstrand scored a goal on two shots in Wednesday's 8-5 win over the Sharks.

    Bjorkstrand scored in the third period to end a 17-game goal drought. He last scored on Opening Night. The winger's lack of finishing has started to cost him ice time -- he's finished with less than 13 minutes in three of the last four games. Bjorkstrand has two goals, eight assists, 57 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through 19 contests, but he'll have to show a bit more to regain a top-six role.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Puts up assist Sunday

    Bjorkstrand logged an assist in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Jets.

    Bjorkstrand was bumped down to the third line in a shuffle by head coach Dave Hakstol. That trio connected for the Kraken's second goal, as Bjorkstrand took a pass from Yanni Gourde and set up Brandon Tanev for the tally. Seattle lacks a true scoring force, but its balanced offense means a third-line assignment probably won't dig into Bjorkstrand's chances to put up points. The 27-year-old winger has a goal, eight assists, 52 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 16 contests. He's shooting just 1.9 percent this year, but he hasn't finished a campaign lower than 12.6 percent since 2017-18, so there's a good chance he bounces back at some point.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Sends helper in win

    Bjorkstrand recorded an assist, two shots on goal, three blocked shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Predators.

    Bjorkstrand helped out on a Jordan Eberle goal just 38 seconds into the game. With four assists in his last four games, including two on the power play, Bjorkstrand has bounced back from a recent five-game slump. The 27-year-old winger is up to eight points, 48 shots on net, a plus-1 rating and nine blocked shots in 14 contests.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Notches power-play assist

    Bjorkstand had a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Wild.

    Bjorkstrand ended October with no points in the last five contests, but he's bounced back with three helpers in two games to begin November. The 27-year-old winger has seven points (three on the power play), 45 shots on net, nine hits and an even plus-minus rating while playing in a top-six role in his first year with the Kraken.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Dishes pair of assists

    Bjorkstrand recorded two assists and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Flames.

    Bjorkstrand's offense went quiet recently, as his performance Tuesday snapped a five-game point drought. The winger still hasn't scored since Opening Night. He's at one goal, five assists, 41 shots on net and a minus-1 rating in 11 appearances. The recent slump has also cost him playing time, as he's been under 16 minutes of ice time in three of the last four games.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Records six shots Sunday

    Bjorkstrand racked up six shots in Sunday's 5-4 loss to Chicago.

    Bjorkstrand is mired in a six-game goal drought despite having tallied 23 shots over the stretch. Given his high shot volume, the 27-year-old Dane should find the back of the net sooner rather than later. During his goal slump, Bjorkstrand has picked up a trio of helpers, including a two-assist performance versus St. Louis on Oct. 19.

  • Kraken's Oliver Bjorkstrand: Contributes pair of assists

    Bjorkstrand had a pair of secondary helpers in the contest to put an end to a two-game mini-slump. The 27-year-old winger has been one of the Kraken's most productive forwards so far, picking up a power-play goal and three assists in five contests. He's added 18 shots on net, though he was held without one in Wednesday's contest. He should continue to put up solid numbers in a top-six role.
