|NHL Draft||125th overall, 2002
He was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the 4th round (125th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft after establishing himself at his original local club, Malmö Redhawks of the then Elitserien. Björk plays pretty secure defense, but can contribute offensively as well. He is a rather tough defenseman and plays a good physical game. Björk, who is quite agile and mobile, has also a good release and he passes the puck well.
On June 6, 2014, Björk left Malmö of the HockeyAllsvenskan for a second time, in agreeing to a one-year contract with Austrian club, HC TWK Innsbruck of the EBEL. He returned to the Redhawks later in the season, and helped the club gain promotion to the SHL.
