Prospect Report: Fallstrom

by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins -- As a member of the Harvard Crimson, Boston Bruins prospect Alex Fallstrom has had the unique experience of playing regular season games in TD Garden as part of the annual Beanpot Tournament, which pits Boston’s premiere hockey programs against each other in a fight for city bragging rights.

This season, Fallstrom and the Crimson defeated Boston University to take third place in the 59th installment of the Beanpot. Fallstrom recorded two assists in Harvard’s 5-4 win.

“It was a fun game to play, in the Garden, that’s really special,” Fallstrom said after the game.

The 6’ 2”, 203-pound forward was drafted by Minnesota in the fourth round (116th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. The Bruins acquired Fallstrom’s rights on Oct. 18, 2009 in a trade that send Chuck Kobasew to Minnesota. 

As a member of the Bruins’ organization, Fallstrom said playing a game in TD Garden was extra special. 

“That’s a big dream, to one day maybe play in a Bruins jersey here. But I’m with Harvard now and that’s what matters,” he said.   

In his two seasons with Harvard, the 20-year-old sophomore has a 7-12-19 scoring line to go along with 40 penalty minutes. 

As a freshman Fallstrom skated in 32 of Harvard’s 33 games, registering 12 points. 

Before attending Harvard, the Stockholm, Sweden native spent two years at Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in Faribault, Minn.  He captained the squad his senior season and led the team in scoring with 40-47-87 totals.

In the same season, Fallstrom helped his team win the 2008 USA Hockey Tier I 18 and Under National Championship. 

Since his rights were traded to Boston, Fallstrom has had the opportunity to participate in the Boston Bruins developments camp.

“It’s a really fun week, you get to know a lot of good guys and skate with a lot of great players,” Fallstrom said of his participation in the camp. “It’s an overall great experience both mentally and physically.”
