Anders Bjork’s promising rookie season with the Boston Bruins has been cut short.

Bruins head team physician Dr. Peter Asnis revealed in a statement Thursday that Bjork underwent a successful left shoulder arthroscopy and labral repair earlier this week. The expected recovery time is approximately six months, meaning the 21-year-old winger’s first NHL season is over.

Bjork, a fifth-round pick in 2014, totaled four goals and eight assists for 12 points in 30 games with Boston this season. He hasn’t appeared in a game since Jan. 30 after being involved in an awkward collision with Anaheim Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin.
