Scott Walker is a Canadian winger on the Washington Capitals.
Walker was drafted by Vancouver in 1993, and joined the club in 1994. He played parts of 4 seasons with the Canucks before being picked up by Nashville in the 1998 expansion draft. He had his best years in Nashville, including a 25 goal, 67 point season in 2003-04. He was traded to Carolina in 2006. He holds the dubious NHL record of playing the most games in his career before ever playing in the playoffs. He was traded to Washington at the 2010 trade deadline, to add some energy and defensive abilities to their offensively stacked lineup.
Walker played for Canada at the 1999 and 2001 World Championships.
