Oliver Wahlstrom became the youngest player to ever make a college hockey commitment.

What were you doing in seventh grade? It probably wasn't what Oliver Wahlstrom is doing -- in fact, it's basically a guarantee.

Wahlstrom, a 13-year-old seventh grader, just committed to play his college hockey in his home state at the University of Maine, making him the youngest player to ever make a college hockey commitment.

Walhstrom's hockey fame really began four years ago, when at 9, his shootout skills in the Bruins Mini 1-on-1 intermission contest at TD Garden went viral for a pair of amazing goals.

Walhstrom won't be playing his college puck until 2019, which gives him enough time to avoid the next NHL lockout, should his game progress to professional heights.
