K-WINGS & MONSTERS (AHL) SWAP BJØRGVIK-HOLM FOR CAJAN

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets, announced Monday that the Cleveland Monsters have recalled the loan of defenseman Ole Julian Bjørgvik-Holm and have reassigned goaltender Pavel Cajan to the K-Wings. 

Cajan, 20, owns a 2.26 goals-against average (GAA), a .939 save percentage (S%) and a 5-2-0-0 record in seven games played for the K-Wings this season.

In 19 games with the Monsters, the Pribram, CZE native owns a 7-8-2-0 record with a 3.55 GAA and .873 S%. Cajan also helped lead the Kitchener Rangers to the OHL playoffs last season, finishing with a 3.61 GAA, a .901 save percentage and a 21-18-4 record.

Bjørgvik Holm, 20, scored one goal and three assists in 19 games played for Kalamazoo this season, and has recorded two assists and six penalty minutes in 25 games for Cleveland this season. 

The Oslo, Norway native played two seasons in the OHL with Mississauga after a highly successful junior career in Norway, including winning the Norway U18 Gold Medal with Manglerud in 2016-17 and the Silver Medal the following year. Bjørgvik Holm was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 5th Round of the 2020 NHL Draft.
