We took an in-depth look at likely first-rounder Oliver Wahlstrom (Quincy, Mass.) and his circuitous path to college hockey. Hint: Wahlstrom has been banging in goals left and right for the U.S. National Team Development Program. Many NHL teams are after his services.
We also broke down New England’s top 14 draft prospects, many of whom have roots in prep schools. Jordan Harris (Haverhill, Mass.) of Kimball Union Academy and Jay O’Brien (Hingham, Mass.) of Thayer Academy are especially worth keeping an eye on.
Outside of the NHL Draft, we look back upon Strauss Mann’s (Greenwich, Conn.) incredible USHL season. The goaltender, who’s a Michigan commit and former Brunswick School standout, led the Fargo Force to the Clark Cup.
