After fighting injuries during his first two seasons at Harvard, Alex Fallstrom has been able to stay healthy and has turned himself into a reliable, two-way hockey player at the collegiate level.
During his first two seasons with the Crimson, Fallstrom suffered from not only a high ankle sprain but also a separated shoulder. Last season he was healthy, though, and Fallstrom turned in 13 goals and 12 assists in 25 games for the Crimson.
“Staying healthy last season really helped Fallstrom establish himself,” Harvard coach Ted Donato said of Fallstrom. “Those kinds of injuries can nag and stay with you for months. Alex was poised for a breakout season, and I expect more of the same this year.”
