Meet the New Worcester Shark.....Sebastian Stalberg!

Meet the new Worcester Shark……. #42 Sebastian Stalberg!

Height: 6-1
Hometown: Gothenburg, Sweden
Previous Team: University of Vermont
The Gothenburg, Sweden native will join the Worcester Sharks after his season at Vermont concluded with a 4-0 loss to Boston College on March 3. His brother Viktor played at Vermont from 2006-2009 and currently plays for the Chicago Blackhawks.
Coming off his freshman season in which he was named to the 2009-10 Hockey East All-Rookie team and recorded 19 points, his coach Kevin Sneddon had high hopes for Sebastian. “Sebastian was one of the top freshman forwards in Hockey East last season and has worked hard to improve his strength during the off-season. I believe Sebastian will become one of our top scorers this season."
Sebastian lived up to that billing his sophomore year by being named to the Hockey East All-Star Honorable Mention and Hockey East All-Academic team. During that season he had many memorable moments including scoring a goal in game 1 of the Hockey East quarterfinals against UNH and notching the game-winning goal on Senior Night against UMass-Lowell. Sebastian recorded eight multi point games that season with six goals and 12 assists in those games.
This season as a junior, Sebastian lead the Catamounts in scoring (12-19-31, 34 GP) and scored two goals in Vermont’s big upset of #4 ranked Minnesota on October 23. He also tied his career high with 3 points in a game during a 5-4 loss to UMass-Lowell on February 4. Stalberg looks to give the Sharks some much needed scoring punch as they push for the playoffs.
“Sebastian is a skilled and versatile forward that improved each and every year at the college level,” said Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson.  “Coach Kevin Sneddon and his staff at the University of Vermont have been tremendous in helping Sebastian’s development and we look forward to him continuing on that path with our organization.”
