Internet sensation Wahlstrom commits to Harvard

From the time he was 9 years old, Yarmouth, Maine native Oliver Wahlstrom was known in hockey circles as the wunderkind who turned in several of the more amazing goals you'll ever see during a Boston Bruins' Mini 1-on-1 competition.

For a refresher, here's a look back at the YouTube video that's clocked more than 5 million views:

Since then, Wahlstrom became the youngest player to give a verbal commitment to the University of Maine as a 13-year-old and was the first year 2000 birthdate recruit to give a commitment to NCAA team.

However, Wahlstrom, who currently plays at Shattuck St. Mary's (Minnesota), withdrew his commitment to the Black Bears in July, and reopened his recruitment. On Thursday, the winger made his decision known via his Twitter account, giving a commitment to Harvard for the 2018 season:

Wahlstrom, whose father played at Maine, played as a seventh grader at North Yarmouth Academy (Maine), scoring 11 goals and adding 18 assists in 22 games. He was Shattuck's second leading scorer last year, netting 68 goals with 46 assists in 65 games for the Tier 1 Bantam team.
