Professional[edit]

Fallon's professional career has seen him playing extensively in the ECHL and AHL. He spent the 2008-09 season almost exclusively in the ECHL, seeing only back-up ice time in the AHL with the Rockford IceHogs for 2 games. 2009-10, he spent completely in the AHL, playing for Rockford and the Peoria Rivermen. 2010-11 was spent splitting time between the AHL and ECHL, playing for the San Antonio Rampage and Las Vegas Wranglers.

On September 16, 2011, the Las Vegas Wranglers announced that they had re-signed Fallon to play for the 2011-12 season.[1] He spent the majority of the season with the Wranglers, with short call-ups to the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers and Houston Aeros, earning All-ECHL second team honors[2] and helping his team in the postseason to the Kelly Cup Finals.
