Rickard Wallin was born April 19, 1980 in Stockholm, Sweden. The sixth round, 160th overall selection of the Phoenix Coyotes in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Wallin came to North America in 2002-03 after spending the early part of his playing career overseas in Sweden.

A member of Sweden's World Junior Team in 2000, Wallin spent the past two seasons with Farjestad of the Swedish Elite League and became property of the Minnesota Wild after being dealt by Phoenix in the summer 2000. Wallin made his NHL debut during the 2002-03 season, seeing action in a handful of games with the Wild while spending the majority of the season helping the AHL's Houston Aeros capture the Calder Cup title.

Coming off a Calder Cup win in 2003, Wallin continued to hone his skills in Houston while seeing limited action with the parent club.
