Wallin made his professional debut with the AHL's Adirondack Red Wings in 1998–99 and in 1999–2000 made his NHL debut when he played in a single game for Detroit. He spent the rest of that year in the AHL with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks. Over the next two years it was much of the same for Wallin, splitting his time with the AHL and the parent club. He was awarded a Stanley Cup ring in 2002, and was included on the team picture. He did not play enough games to get his name on the Stanley Cup. The next season following year he joined Detroit full time.
After five seasons with Detroit organization, Wallin was acquired by the Calgary Flames in the summer of 2003 and was sent back down the AHL to play for the Lowell Lock Monsters. In his first game he suffered a concussion and has since retired from playing the game of hockey.

Famous quotes containing the words career and/or professional:
“It is a great many years since at the outset of my career I had to think seriously what life had to offer that was worth having. I came to the conclusion that the chief good for me was freedom to learn, think, and say what I pleased, when I pleased. I have acted on that conviction... and though strongly, and perhaps wisely, warned that I should probably come to grief, I am entirely satisfied with the results of the line of action I have adopted.”
—Thomas Henry Huxley (182595)
“... a supportive husband is an absolute requirement for professional women.... He is something she looks for, and when she finds him, she marries him.”
—Alice S. Rossi (b. 1922)
