During the 2011–12 season, he made his NHL debut with the Maple Leafs on March 23, 2012 in a 4-3 win against the New Jersey Devils, registering an assist.[4]

After Hamilton was named MVP of the 2013 AHL All-Star Game, he was recalled to the NHL a few days later.[5] On July 5, 2013, the Edmonton Oilers signed him to a two-year deal where he was reunited with former Toronto Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins.[6] He scored his first NHL goal on February 10, 2015, in a 3–2 loss to the New York Islanders.[7]

After three seasons within the Oilers organization, Hamilton opted to remain with affiliate, the Bakersfield Condors, signing a two-year AHL contract on April 27, 2016.[8]

Upon completing his third season with the Condors in 2017–18, Hamilton ended his 12-year professional career in accepting a pro scouting position with the San Jose Sharks on July 31, 2018.[9]
