Jesse Wallin (born March 10, 1978 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who played in 49 career National Hockey League games for the Detroit Red Wings. He is currently the head coach of the Red Deer Rebels of the WHL.

Minor league hockey[]

Wallin started turning heads in the WHL while playing for the Red Deer Rebels. From 1994–1997 he helped this team to the playoffs three times with his solid defensive skills. In 1996 he was taken 1st (26th overall) by the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL Draft, then returned to junior league and went on to be named the CHL Humanitarian of the Year in 1997 after winning gold in the Junior World Championship. Wallin also received the Doug Wickenheiser Memorial Trophy back-to-back in 1996–97 and 1997–98 for being the WHL's Humanitarian of the Year.

Professional career[]

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 capturing a Stanley Cup in 2002 before becoming a regular with the Wings the following year.

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.


Coaching Career[]

Wallin was an assistant coach for the Red Deer Rebels from 2005 to 2008. He has been the Rebels' head coach since 2008.
