Katie Strang broke it a short time ago that Tim Wallace, a mainstay in Wilkes-Barre since 2006-07, has signed with the Islanders. Wallace adds some veteran presence up front. He has scored 20 goals each of the past two years for the WBS Pens. Brings grit and toughness. He hits hard.
If you’ve been around here for a few years, you probably remember some of those hits: two on Andy Sertich late in the 2007-08 season, one of which got him suspended; one on Mike Iggulden in the 2009 playoffs, which knocked Iggulden out for the series and got Wallace suspended. Bygones are, clearly, bygones.
He has played 304 games for WBS with 75 goals and 62 assists, to go with two assists in 24 games for Pittsburgh. He’ll be 27 in a couple of weeks.
