Observations

April 2018 – Wahlstrom has done nothing but improve his draft stock this season. The dynamic winger currently leads the U18 USNTDP in nearly every statistical category by producing 40 goals, 83 points and 243 shots on goal in just 54 games. Wahstrom is big, strong, lethal from the circles down and loves driving into the dirty areas to finish a play. His chemistry with fellow 2018 draft-eligible prospect, Joel Farabee and 2019 uber prospect, Jack Hughes has been incredible. Wahlstrom appears destined for a top 10 selection this June and could force his way into the top five. Cam Robinson

January 2018 – Owns some of the best pure puck skills in the draft. The goal scoring forward doesn’t shy away from attacking dangerous scoring areas and boasts strong speed and quick feet. He’s been on fire with the USNTDP this fall, clicking well-above a point-per-game. He heads to Harvard in the fall of 2018. Cam Robinson

Lately, he’s been finding a great deal of chemisty next to fellow 2018 draft-eligible prospect, Joel Farabee and über 16-year-old prospect, Jack Hughes on the U18’s top line. They seem to create literally every time they step on the ice.
