This Mainer Is A Hockey Prodigy

Oliver Wahlstrom became an Internet sensation by scoring a single goal.

We reported on Oliver Wahlstrom in our March issue after his verbal commitment to play ice hockey for the University of Maine Black Bears made headlines across the state (he’s believed to be the youngest player ever to make such a commitment). But this middle schooler at North Yarmouth Academy has been in the news before: in 2009, at nine year’s old, Wahlstrom scored a masterful goal during a Boston Bruins pregame competition.
