The last Oliver Wahlstrom post on the DBoard



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.

Wise - and TJ Walsh - were way ahead of Wahlstrom at 12-14. Good lesson to be learned there.

TJ - 5'9" 168 pounds

You are so wrong about this. Neither of them could ever touch Ollie. The kid's only problem was he was so far ahead of his age group that he rarely tried. Could score at will back then.

Well, I guess a lack of intensity and competitive drive are as good a reason as any to be considered below other elite players.

But, my kid played with and against all three. OW was good, don't get me wrong, but wasn't considered as good as the other two at the peewee level.
