Playing careerEdit

Chosen in the 7th round of the 2008 Entry Draft (188th overall) by the Toronto Maple Leafs, he would make his NHL debut on March 11, 2015, recording 1 point in a 4–3 Toronto victory over the Buffalo Sabres. He was also named 3rd star of the game and went on to finish the season with the Toronto Maple Leafs, playing a total of 12 games.[1] MacWilliam wore number 57 during his time with the Maple Leafs, becoming the first player in franchise history to wear the number.

On July 3, 2015, MacWilliam signed as a free agent to a one-year, two-way contract with the Winnipeg Jets.[2] On July 1, 2016, as a free agent for a second consecutive season, MacWilliam left the Winnipeg Jets to sign a one-year, two-way deal with the New Jersey Devils.[3]

On July 4, 2017, having left the Devils as a free agent, MacWilliam with slim NHL interest opted to continue in the AHL, signing a contract with the Rochester Americans.[4]
