Roslovic played the 2013–14 and 2014–15 seasons in the United States Hockey League (USHL) as a member of the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (U.S. NTDP).

On April 6, 2017, Roslovic made his NHL debut at his home town of Columbus against the Columbus Blue Jackets. After one game he was reassigned to the Jets AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose. Roslovic ended the 2016–17 season leading the Moose in scoring with 48 points in 65 games.
Roslovic began the 2018–19 season with the Winnipeg Jets in the NHL. He scored his first career hat-trick in a 9–3 win over the Anaheim Ducks on February 2, 2019. All of his goals came on the powerplay. This allowed Roslovic to be named the NHL's first star of the week ending February 4, 2019.
