Left winger Steve Maltais has been a useful part time player in the NHL since debuting in 1989-90. In junior and the minors he was an explosive performer and led the IHL in goal scoring five times in six seasons during the 1990s.

Born in Arvida, Quebec, Maltais moved to Toronto to play for the Wexford Hawks in 1985-86. This was followed by three fine seasons in the OHL with the Cornwall Royals. After scoring 53 goals in 1988-89, he was named to the league's second all-star team. Selected 57th overall by the Washington Capitals in 1987, Maltais was strictly a high scoring AHL farmhand for the club.

Maltais moved on to the Minnesota North Stars and Quebec Nordiques but continued to spend most of his time in the minors. After being claimed by the Tampa Bay Lightning at the 1992 expansion draft, he played 63 games and took a regular shift for the first year club. Following the season, he was traded to the Detroit Red Wings for Dennis Vial but spent most of the 1993-94 schedule in Adirondack.

Beginning in 1994-95, Maltais embarked on a dominant six-year stretch with the Chicago Wolves of the IHL. During that period he led the league in goal scoring five times and topped the 50-goal mark on three occasions. The clever sniper also helped Chicago win the Turner Cup in 1998 and was named to the league's first all-star team three times and was a two-time selection to the second unit. On the eve of the 2000-01 season, Maltais was signed as a free agent by the expansion Columbus Blue Jackets and played 26 games, his first taste of the NHL in nearly seven years.
