Rookie forward Anders Bjork, knocked out of the lineup Nov. 11 on a heavy hit to his head and neck by Toronto’s Matt Martin, was first on the ice Tuesday morning when the Bruins resumed their workouts in Brighton.
Bjork, a speedy right winger, wore a red sweater while on the ice, indicating he was not cleared to engage in contact. Over the weekend, coach Bruce Cassidy said Bjork would not be available for games this week, including Wednesday night’s Garden visit by Tampa Bay.
A lefthand shot, Bjork played in 16 games prior to being injured, and delivered a line of 3-6—9.
The Bruins, in keeping with standard practices, did not disclose the nature of his injury, although his time on the sideline could suggest he was concussed. Martin spotted the rookie cruising through center ice with his head down and leveled him with a menacing hit.
Following the workout, Cassidy was expected to name his starting goalie against the Bolts. Anton Khudobin is the likely pick, given that he won four straight starts before ceding the cage Sunday to Tuukka Rask, the 4-2 loser to Oilers.
Brad Marchand, sidelined the last six games with an injury, participated in the morning workout and did not wear a red sweater — the first time he has been eligible for contact.
Cassidy said over the weekend he hoped Marchand, the club’s top scorer last season, would be eligible to play vs. the Bolts.
Ryan Spooner, who sat out vs. the Oilers, also participated in the workout.
The Bruins are right back on the road after the visit by Steve Stamkos & Co. They face the Flyers in a 1 p.m. matinee Saturday in Philly and then take on the Predators in Nashville on Monday night.
