Steve Eminger (born October 31, 1983 in Woodbridge, Ontario) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He plays defence for the New York Rangers in the NHL.

Eminger, who is also known for his physical play, started his hockey career with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League in 1999. He was drafted in the first round, 12th overall by the Washington Capitals at the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut the next season, but after 17 games in Washington he was sent back down to Kitchener. This proved to be a blessing in disguise, however, as Kitchener was strengthened by Eminger's return, and they won the Memorial Cup as the best team in Canadian junior hockey.

Since leaving junior hockey, Eminger has split his time between the Capitals and their AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates. Despite the lofty projections that came with his first round pick status, Eminger has failed to live up to expectations. Throughout the 2007–08 NHL season, the final season of his contract, Eminger spent a great deal of time as a healthy scratch. However, during the 2008 playoffs the Capitals were decimated by injuries and Eminger was put into the lineup with a larger role. During these playoffs, Eminger suddenly found his niche and proved himself to be a solid defenceman. During the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Eminger, along with the 84th overall pick (Jacob Deserres) were traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for the 27th pick overall (John Carlson).
