Quote Reply The last Oliver Wahlstrom post on the DBoard
Also pegged to play for the Yanks: ex-BC forward (and Bay State boy) Oliver Wahlstrom, who departed the Heights after one season and signed with the Islanders (three years/$925,000 cap hit if he makes the varsity) in late March.
Wahlstrom, who played 10 games for AHL Bridgeport after flying the Eagle coop — five in the regular season, five in the playoffs — has his eye first and foremost on landing a roster spot with the Islanders. He trained much of the summer in Sweden, his dad’s homeland, with Vastra Frolunda, and played well enough in the AHL that he’ll merit at least as initial look from Islanders coach Barry Trotz.
How fast things change. Wise was neck and neck with Wahlstrom.
TJ - 5'9" 168 pounds
JW - 5'10" 190 pounds
OW - 6'1" 205 pounds
Who taught this kid to play hockey? His current coach is not happy with them.
Another example of rushing a kid....
the frauds that run USA hockey and NCAA teams..
OW Height and Weight along the way..
NTDP : 6'1 205
Boston College : 6'2 209
What a surprise.. AHL Bridgeport now lists him as:
when are scouts and the idiots that run this sport going to realize kids and programs lie about size all the time to get noticed.
Hope OW didn't spend all of his signing bonus..
Hey jealous toolbag - OW is listed as 6-2 and 209 on AHL page.
The only source that actually reports accurate stats is central scouting. I've seen them pull a kid out of the locker room and measure him bare feet right there in the hallway. EVERYONE else lies.
nice to see we are no longer discussing his ability:clap:
The Sound Tigers listing is wrong. We've all seen him play at BC and he is easily over 6' tall. Other places say 6'2" and I would say if not then 6'3"
