Iafallo played major junior hockey with the Fargo Force in the United States Hockey League before embarking on a collegiate career with the University of Minnesota Duluth of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference.
Undrafted, Iafallo registered a team leading 21 goals, 30 assists and 51 points as a senior in the 2016–17 season. He was named a First Team All–American and MVP of the NCHC All-Tournament Team. Having recorded 121 points in 152 games over the course of his four-year tenure with the Bulldogs, Iafallo was signed as a free agent to a two-year, entry-level contract with the Los Angeles Kings on April 19, 2017.
Having impressed throughout the Kings rookie and main roster training camp, Iafallo made the opening night roster for the 2017–18 season. He stepped straight into the NHL in making his debut for the Kings in a 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on October 5, 2017. He scored his first NHL goal on November 5, 2017, in his 14th career game, against the Nashville Predators. This helped erase a three-goal deficit but the Predators won in overtime, 4-3.
At the age of four, Iafallo began skating but was held back from joining the local mite travel team for a year per his parents request. His father Tom, a restaurant owner and a coach, built a roller rink in their backyard for Iafallo and his sister Julianna to practice on. Julianna is also a professional hockey player. She plays for the Buffalo Beauts in the National Women's Hockey League.
