Fraser Wallace – Junior Review


Recommended Posts

Ice Hockey in Scotland is a niche watched by few and played by even fewer but that none if that affected Fraser Wallace’s love for the game and his desire to be the very best. There aren’t very many junior hockey teams in Scotland so he started off his career playing for the Kilmarnock Thunder junior teams (u12 all the way to u19) where he was a major success posting multiple 2+ points per game seasons.


This caught the eye of local SNL team the Paisley Pirates who wanted to have Wallace join them in their push for the SNL title. In his first and only season for the pirates, Wallace went a point per game, a big reduction from the highs of his junior career but this time he was playing against adults and that lack of game experience limited his abilities but the signs were very promising.


His performance in the SNL was noticed by team all over the UK in the EIHL (the UK’s top flight) and it was clear that someone was going to snap him up but the question was who did Wallace want to sign with. It came down to 2 teams, the Cardiff Devils and the Glasgow Clan. Despite the allure of the Champions hockey league that he would get with Cardiff, he chose to remain in Scotland and play with his favourite team, the Glasgow Clan.


He played 2 seasons with the Clan. In his first season, he played 52 games putting up 7 goals and 13 assists for 20 points. It was clear that he had a hard time adjusting to the quality of the league and he was now playing against professional player, some who have had great careers and played in top leagues all over Europe and even the NHL but again you could see the promise was there with Wallace. With rumours of him heading over to the VHLM, there was one goal before he left… the playoff championship.


In that second season, Wallace went a point per game to help take the Clan to #1 n the standings and secure them a favourable match up in the quarter finals. The Glasgow side battled their way to the final, defeating rivals the Fife Flyers in the quarter final 8-3 (over two legs) and the Belfast giants in a hard fought 5-4 overtime win with Wallace getting the game winning goal. In the final they face the Cardiff Devils and it was time for Wallace to give the Glasgow faithful his farewell. Wallace bagged all 3 goals in a 3-2 win to seal the clubs first playoff title.


He is currently playing with the Las Vegas Aces in the VHLM where he is looking to win another championship and he is looking to show off his skills for the upcoming VHLM draft
