Bjorkstrand (ankle) will be ready to play once the NHL kicks off the 24-team playoff, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Bjorkstrand was on a six-game point streak prior to getting hurt in late February in which he notched four goals and three helpers. The winger has struggled with injuries this season and was limited to just 49 regular-season appearances but still managed to reach the 20-goal mark for the second consecutive year. The Jackets are set to clash with the Maple Leafs in a best-of-five play-in series, where Bjorkstrand could find himself logging big minutes in a top-six role.
