A pair of college players inked entry-level deals with NHL teams after seeing their school’s seasons end.
Boston locked up former Wild 2009 fourth-round pick and Harvard University standout Alex Fallstrom to his first NHL contract. Fallstrom’s career with the Crimson saw him finish with 70 points in his college career with 33 goals. The 6’2″ 203 pound native of Sweden led the way for the team this year with 21 points. The Bruins acquired him from Minnesota in the 2009 trade involving Chuck Kobasew.
Vancouver did things a bit differently signing college free agent Kellan Lain out of Lake Superior State. Lain, a 6’6″ 22o pound center, finished his junior year with the Lakers with eight goals, eight assists and 111 penalty minutes. That PIM total saw him finish tied for third in the country. In his three years with Lake State, Lain had 39 points and 210 penalty minutes. And here you thought truculence was Toronto’s thing.
