INDEPENDENCE, MO. – Forward Nolan Walker has signed with the Kansas City Mavericks for the 2023-24 season, the organization announced today.
“Nolan is coming off a great season under contract with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies and assisting Newfoundland to the conference finals,” said Mavericks General Manager and Head Coach, Tad O’Had. “Nolan is an elite-level skater and his speed is a major asset.
