Oliver Bjorkstrand comments on the Kraken mentality

Published May 15, 2024 at 8:22 PM

Despite the Seattle Kraken's disappointing 2023-24 campaign, which saw them fail to make the postseason after a Cinderella run the previous year, star winger Oliver Bjorkstrand remains optimistic about the team's prospects for the upcoming season.

"We need to recapture our hunger," Bjorkstrand comments

The 27-year-old Swede, who was an absolute workhorse for the Kraken last season, playing in 81 of 82 regular-season games and representing the team at the All-Star Game, believes the key to success lies in recapturing the team's "hunger."

Bjorkstrand's unwavering commitment and work ethic were on full display throughout the 2023-24 season, as he nearly achieved "Ironman" status by suiting up for all but one of the Kraken's regular-season contests. His consistent presence on the ice and his selection to the All-Star Game in Toronto were testament to his exceptional talent and the respect he has garnered from his peers and coaches alike.

However, despite Bjorkstrand's individual accomplishments, the Kraken fell short of their ultimate goal – a return to the playoffs. This disappointment has only fueled Bjorkstrand's determination to help the team bounce back stronger in the upcoming season.
