BDN, Press Herald Report on 13-Year-Old Committing to UMaine Hockey Team
The Bangor Daily News and the Portland Press Herald reported seventh-grader Oliver Wahlstrom of Yarmouth, Maine, has committed to play hockey at the University of Maine, making him the youngest player to commit to an NCAA college hockey program. When Wahlstrom was nine years old, he became an Internet sensation for making a shootout goal during a skills competition hosted by the Boston Bruins. Wahlstrom said he chose UMaine because he likes the campus, training facilities and coaches, as well as the outdoors. Wahlstrom’s father, Joakim Wahlstrom, is a former Black Bear forward.
