A hardworking winger, Maltby played a gritty, physical game. In his prime, he was one of the NHL's top agitators and penalty-killing forwards. For most of his Red Wings career, he formed an excellent shutdown duo with center Kris Draper. Playing right wing on that line was first Joey Kocur, but later Darren McCarty took his spot on the famous "Grind Line."
