Recruited locally, Malakellis made nine appearances for Geelong in 1990, all in the second half of the season.[2] On his debut that year, against Carlton at Princes Park, Malakellis earned a Brownlow Medal vote for his 23 disposals and two goals.[2] He played only five games in 1991 and didn't feature at all in the 1992 AFL season.[2] Sydney secured his services in 1993 but he spent just one year at the club, before moving to South Australia and signing with Port Adelaide.[3] He played 70 games for Port Adelaide, until retiring in 1998, and was a member of their 1994 and 1995 premiership teams. In 1994 he came runner up in the SANFL Magery Medal count. [4]
