More Info
TRADED TO BOSTON BRUINS AS PART OF DEAL FOR CHUCK KOBASEW IN OCTOBER 2009.

Alexander Fallstrom was born and raised in Gothenburg and Stockholm, Sweden. During his early years, he played for three different Swedish teams (Brinken, Lindigo, and Djurgarden) before making the big decision to advance his career by moving to Minnesota.

It was difficult for Fallstrom to uproot from his country and readjust to life in Fairbault, Minnesota, but in the end it really paid off. In Minnesota, Fallstrom found his home at Shattuck St. Mary’s. He was noted for his size and strength among coaches who also noted that he still has much room for improvement and is still learning how to read the game effectively.

By 2008-2009, Fallstrom was a senior captain for Shattuck St. Mary’s and he was first on the team with 40 goals and 87 points in 52 games. He was drafted to the Minnesota Wild in 2009, but his immediate plans are still up in the air. Some say he will be playing for Harvard in the fall of 2009; others envision him returning to Sweden to play in amateur ranks and get his playing to the next level. Whatever the near future holds, it’s clear that the Minnesota Wild will be keeping their eye on Fallstrom to see how he performs and if they need to call him up sooner rather than later.
