Nick Bjugstad struggled this season and got a D- at the end of the season on The Puck Under The Sun’s Player Grades from the year. However in the playoffs he has earned an A. Nick Bjugstad has done magnificent in the playoffs while filling in for Vincent Trocheck with Reilly Smith. Smith and Bjugstad have combined for 11 points and 6 goals. So Nick I apologize for my mean comments about your play in the regular season and keep up your performance in the playoffs. When Vincent Trocheck comes back it is a question up in the air whether Bjugstad will return to his 3rd line or stay on the 2nd. If he does go back to the third line hopefully he can get Hudler and Purcell’s performances up. Go 27!
