Junior co-captain Anders Bjork has been an offensive force for the Fighting Irish as the team’s top scorer and one of the nation’s most prolific point producers. Both on and off the ice, Bjork has a unique ability to connect with fans of all ages, especially children. Through that connection, Bjork has made a difference in the Notre Dame community and beyond. He has spent countless hours over the last two seasons just a few blocks south of the Compton Family Ice Arena at the Perley Fine Arts Academy in South Bend, Ind., where he has worked closely with a third-grade classroom, mentoring, teaching and befriending over 30 students. Always a willing listener who has become a permanent fixture in the classroom, Bjork has helped teach important lessons about hard work, overcoming adversity and bullying.
