Falkenberg jumped to the new WHA for its inaugural (1972–73) season, where he consistently played the next five seasons with the Alberta Oilers (renamed Edmonton in their second season), then the Mariners. He retired from hockey after a brief two games, back with the Oilers, at the start of his sixth WHA season (1977–78).
