Wallace Signs Back in Port Huron

The Port Huron Prowlers have announced the signing of goaltender Ian Wallace. This is his third time signing with the Prowlers.

“It feels good to be back again,” Wallace said. “I love the group of guys we have and it should be a fun season. I’m excited to be back in a Port Huron Prowlers jersey.”

Wallace was rostered by four FPHL teams last season. Besides Port Huron, he made starts for Mississippi and Binghamton while also backing up, but not getting into, a pair of games for the Elmira Mammoth.

The Franklin Pierce University product began the season with the Prowlers before he was traded to the Sea Wolves in November. He signed as a free agent with both the Black Bears and Mammoth before returning to Port Huron as a free agent in March. In his last start of the year, Wallace pitched a 46-save shutout in Watertown. It was the Prowlers’ only shutout of the season.

“Wallace is a pro’s pro,” said Prowlers general manager Matt Graham. “He’s had a great attitude ever since the first time I met him in Port Huron. No matter what circumstances he has faced he’s just kept his head down and kept grinding and working to be ready for any opportunity he might get. When he came back down the stretch last season, I thought he played extremely well for us, and even saw some time in relief in the postseason. To be honest, we didn’t wanna let him go, but I thought he might get a better opportunity elsewhere. It turns out that opportunity was here. We couldn’t be happier to have him back and have all the confidence in the world in him.”

The West Islip, NY native was selected in the expansion draft this offseason by the Blue Ridge Bobcats. He was released Saturday.

The Prowlers’ home opener is Oct. 20 and season ticket packages are still available to see every home game this season. For more information and to purchase, visit phprowlers.com/season-memberships or call the box office at 810-985-6166.
