BostonBruins.com - When last Bruins fans saw Anders Bjork, he was raising eyebrows at the team's Development Camp back in July. The forward's skill and scoring touch was apparent.

Now, some two months later, the 20-year-old is making sure his talents show when it matters most.

Bjork, a 2014 fifth-round pick of the Bruins, is leading the nation in scoring with 16 points (seven goals, nine assists) in eight games for seventh-ranked Notre Dame. Over the weekend, in a split with Connecticut, the junior tallied two goals and two assists.

His three-point game (two goals, assist) in a 6-2 win over the Huskies Friday night gave him four multi-point games this season and 16 for his career.

Notre Dame is off this upcoming weekend, but resumes play here in Boston on Nov. 12-13 with a two-game set with Northeastern.

 

 

Here's a look at what some of the other Bruins prospects across college hockey and juniors were up to this past weekend:

Jack Becker, Sioux Falls (USHL)

The forward had an assist in a 2-1 win over Muskegon on Friday and followed up with a team-high four shots on goal in a 4-3 loss Saturday. The 2015 seventh-round draft pick will play at the University of Wisconsin next season.

Ryan Donato, Harvard (NCAA)

The 2014 second-round pick of the Bruins helped the Crimson kick off their 2016-17 with a bang by scoring two goals - one on the power play and one shorthanded - in a 7-0 win over Arizona State Friday night.

Wiley Sherman, Harvard (NCAA)

The defenseman also had a strong performance in Harvard's opener, registering two assists, including a helper on Donato's first tally of the evening.

Ryan Fitzgerald, Boston College (NCAA)

The forward tallied a goal and an assist in BC's 7-4 victory over the University of Massachusetts Saturday night. A 2013 fourth-round pick of the Bruins, Fitzgerald has three goals and four assists in eight games this season, his seven points ranking second on the Eagles.

Trent Frederic, Wisconsin (NCAA)

The 29th overall pick in this year's draft had a goal (shorthanded) and an assist in the Badgers' 5-2 win over St. Lawrence on Friday. Frederic has eight points (three goals, five assists) in six games this season.

Cameron Hughes, Wisconsin (NCAA)

Frederic's teammate at Wisconsin had two assists in a 5-4 win over Clarkson the following night. The junior has a goal and five assists this season.

Jesse Gabrielle, Prince George (WHL)

The winger notched two assists in a 5-2 win over the Kootenay Ice last Wednesday. Gabrielle has registered six goals and eight assists in 11 games, good for second on the Cougars.

Emil Johansson, Djugardens IF (Sweden)

The defenseman (2014 seventh-rounder) potted his first goal of the season over the weekend with a rocket wrister from the point.

Jakub Zboril, Saint John (QMJHL)

The defenseman had single assists in wins over Charlottetown and Moncton last week. The 2015 first-rounder has two goals and five assists in nine games.
