Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jesse Wallin
Born Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Jesse Wallin excelled for four years with the WHL's Red Deer Rebels. He was taken 26th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, then returned to junior where he was named the CHL Humanitarian player of the year in 1997.

Wallin made his professional debut with the AHL's Adirondack Red Wings in 1998-99 and made his NHL debut the following year with the Wings while spending the majority of the 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.
