More on the goal-scoring phenom

It's a goal you have to see -- again and again -- to believe.

Words struggle to do it justice, but here's the quick synopsis if you somehow have not seen it already.

The player, breaking in on the goalie in a shootout-style format, suddenly does a half-spin in between the faceoff circles, lifts the puck onto his stick, and with a lacrosse-style backhand, flips it airborne and stick-side past the frozen goalie.

It would be a highlight for a hockey player of any age. But the scorer here, Oliver Wahlstrom of Cumberland, Maine, happens to be just 9 years old.

Based on the goal alone, it's tempting to describe him as a prodigy -- he is the youngest player on a team made up of mostly 12-year-olds in the Portland Junior Pirates program.

What is certain is that he has excellent hockey bloodlines.

His father, Joakim Wahlstromspent the 1988-89 season playing for the University of Maine. He also briefly played soccer and football for the Black Bears.

Joakim Wahlstrom is currently the general manager for the Portland Junior Pirates program as well as the Maine Hockey Group.

And undoubtedly a very proud dad as well.

Congrats to Oliver, but is it just me that thinks offering scholarships to 7th grader is a little crazy.

They don't and they can't by rule. This is a verbal commitment. Remember Connor Anthoine and UUVM a few years back? Gagne a few years back? Neither ended up happening.

Sorry but scholarships and commitments are two completely different things. I can guarantee you this kid will never put a umaine jersey on.. strike that, he'll have one on in the stands.

Yarmouth-native makes USA World Junior Showcase team

...Wahlstrom was a star during his time in Maine, committing to the University of Maine at age 13. The now-17-year-old has since changed his commitment to Harvard, though he will be NHL Draft eligible next summer. He recently scored four goals for the Team USA U18 squad in this year's world championships.
