Drafted by the Washington Capitals, Walter played there for a few seasons and became the captain before being traded to Montreal in 1982. That year, he made the All-star team.

His first season with the Habs was his most productive, as he scored 29 goals and had 75 points. Although he never again reached the 50-point plateau with the Habs, his defensive play was a great help to the team.

In 1986, he won the only Stanley Cup of his career with the Canadiens.

After he finished his hockey career, he became a broadcaster for TSN and later went on to become an assistant coach with the Vancouver Canucks.
