The first player born in 2000 brought out a wide range of reaction from college hockey fans, writers and coaches.

North Yarmouth Academy (Maine) 7th grader Oliver Wahlstrom reportedly committed Thursday night to the Black Bears for the 2019 season. While several players have made verbal commitments when they are freshmen in high school or even younger, Wahlstrom's promise to play for Maine five years down the line was different.

Coming on the heels of 1999-born Keith Petruzzelli doing the same for Quinnipiac, the first-ever NCAA hockey commitment from a player born in 2000, brought out a wide range of reaction from college hockey fans, writers and coaches. To see what the community is thinking, we've compiled some tweets below.

(For the record, the first 3 14 year-olds were Jon Merrill, Cam Fowler to Notre Dame - he de-committed for the OHL - and UND redshirt sophomore Colten St. Clair, who de-committed from Colorado College)
