Hockey prodigy scores on a breakaway goal during Bruins pregame. Behind the back! NINE YEARS OLD This is in a mini 1-on-1 tournament. Some people are claiming it’s fake, but it isn’t. Proof:
Oliver Wahlstrom plays for the Portland Junior Pirate Pee-Wee Major 97s, a team of 12-year-old players based in Maine. Except Wahlstrom is JUST 9 YEARS OLD, playing up with older competition. One look at this goal, and you can see why. It also doesn’t hurt that his father, Joakim Wahlstrom, was a 10-year veteran of the Swedish Elite League.
According to NESN, that stunning tally came during the taping of the TD Bank Mini 1-on-1, a series that will debut during the first intermission of the Bruins’ game against the New Jersey Devils on Oct. 29. It’s also shown in-game at the TD Banknorth Garden.
Expect to see this kid in the NHL draft in about 10 years; could be the next Sidney Crosby! He was interviewed on ESPN and said his favorite player is Jeremy Roenick. 9
