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.” ---Hannah Becker
