THE NOTTINGHAM Panthers have a new Head Coach – Tim Wallace.

The former NHLer joins the Panthers after lengthy discussions with Director of Hockey Gui Doucet.

Wallace was a player-coach at Milton Keynes last season and says he jumped at the chance to join the Panthers and start a new chapter in his career.

Wallace played in more than a hundred NHL games for Pittsburgh, New York Islanders and Carolina. He also iced in nearly four hundred AHL games in North America. He has more than a hundred top flight games in Sweden on his resume, another 45 games in Germany’s top flight DEL and most recently more than a hundred Elite league games at Sheffield and Milton Keynes.

He tasted coaching at the Lightning last season and says he can’t wait to get to Nottingham.

Wallace has a host of contacts in the sport from his playing experience and will work alongside Director of Hockey Gui Doucet on recruitment for what he’s aiming to be an exciting Panthers line up for season 2019-20.

The 34-year-old, currently at home in Alaska has his coaching badges and will head to Europe in a few weeks’ time before arriving in Nottingham in early August, but will be working on the recruitment front as of now.
