Selected by the Minnesota North Stars in the 1978 NHL Entry Draft, Giles had two tours with the North Stars (197986 and 198791). During each tour, his steady defensive play helped guide the North Stars to finals appearances in 1981 and 1991. Giles also played for the New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues.

He had a portion of his left ring finger amputated on March 24, 1986 in order to compete in the 1986 Stanley Cup playoffs. The finger had a tumor in the bone and forced him to miss the end of the 1985-86 regular-season.[1]

He currently serves as the head hockey coach at Edina High School, Minnesota. His team won the state title in 2010, 2013, and 2014.
