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.
