2008-09: Alexander Fallstrom enjoyed a huge campaign with Shattuck-St. Mary’s. The Swede contributed 87 points in just 57 games for the club. This was a full 20 points higher than his 2007-08 totals.
2009-10: In his freshman season at Harvard University, Fallstrom played in 32 games. He scored 4 goals and added 8 assists for 12 points.
2010-11: Fallstrom appeared in 22 games for Harvard as a sophomore – missing ten games due to injury. He scored 7 goals with 5 assists, including 2 assists in the Crimson's 5-4 win over Boston University in the Beanpot Tournament consolation game. Harvard (12-21-1) advanced to the quarterfinals of the ECAC tournament, falling to Dartmouth in a three-game series. Fallstrom finished with an even plus/minus for the season and accumulated 17 PMs.
2011-12: Fallstrom emerged as one of the leading goal scorers for Harvard as a junior – finishing tied for second along with fellow junior and line mate Marshall Everson with 13 goals behind his other line mate; senior Alexander Killorn (23 goals). Fallstrom also had 12 assists and was plus-eight with 12 penalty minutes in 28 games for the Crimson. Five of his 13 goals were scored on the power play. Despite struggling to stay above .500 for much of the year and tying an unheard of 11 games, Harvard finished third in ECAC Hockey and advanced to the league championship game.
Fallstrom is a highly intelligent player with good all-around ability and size. He plays an industrious game and at times can show good hands and power potential but those moments have been few and far between at the college level thus far. Extremely competent defensively, he reads and anticipates the play well. Still has a lot of work to do in the weight room to fill out his frame.
As of now, Fallstrom projects as a PJ Axelsson-type of defensive specialist in the NHL. But he has a long way to go before he’s NHL ready. Expect him to play out his final two seasons at Harvard and follow that with a few season in the AHL.
