Kirk Maltby
Pro Scout

Kirk Maltby returns for his sixth season as a pro scout with the Detroit Red Wings. The Cambridge, Ontario, native is responsible for evaluating players at both the National Hockey League and American Hockey League levels currently playing on clubs based in the central United States and Canada. Maltby’s input is used by Detroit’s management team when considering potential trades and free agent acquisitions. He also assists Detroit’s coaching staff with advanced scouting reports on upcoming opponents. 

Maltby played 16 NHL seasons before retiring on Oct. 12, 2010, and moving into his current role. He was originally a third-round draft pick (65th overall) of the Edmonton Oilers in the 1992 NHL entry draft. He spent parts of three seasons in Edmonton before a trade deadline deal in 1996 brought him to Detroit in exchange for defenseman Dan McGillis.

Maltby spent the rest of his career in the Motor City, playing 908 games in a Red Wings sweater, tied for eighth-most in franchise history with Sergei Fedorov. Maltby finished his career with 128 goals, 132 assists, 260 points and 867 penalty minutes. He also appeared in 169 postseason games for the Red Wings, fifth-most in team history. He won four Stanley Cups with Detroit (1997, 1998, 2002 and 2008) and became a fan favorite thanks to his agitating style. He was a member of the infamous ‘Grind Line’ in Detroit along with teammates Kris Draper and Darren McCarty. Maltby became the 239th player in NHL history to play in 1,000 career games on Feb. 27, 2009, when the Red Wings played the Los Angeles Kings at Joe Louis Arena.

Kirk and his wife, Wendy, reside in Grosse Pointe, Michigan with their three children, Ella, Landon and Leighton.
