On September 16, 2011, the Las Vegas Wranglers announced that they had re-signed Fallon to play for the 2011–12 season.[3] 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[4] and helping his team in the postseason to the Kelly Cup Finals.

On May 23, 2013, it was confirmed that Fallon was signed to play the 2013–14 season in Norway's GET-ligaen with Lillehammer IK.[5]
