As the 2023 second round pick settles into his second season in the WHL with the Brandon Wheat Kings, the young goalie revealed an emotional part of his life that has contributed to his success.

While speaking with Flyers inside reporter Dylan Robillard, Bjarnson revealed the important role that his grandfather held in his life, and how he is able to represent his grandfather while playing on the ice night in and night out.
Bjarnson revealed that he changed his number from 31 to 64, to represent his grandfather who was a prominent athlete in Canadian sports history.

«My grandpa played professional baseball, Team Canada and lots of regional stuff. He definitely helped me out a lot, he passed away a few years ago, and that's the reason I wear the number I do today.»
