Van Riemsdyk played high school hockey for Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft, New Jersey. He left the school before his senior year to play for the New Hampshire Junior Monarchs of the Eastern Junior Hockey League (EJHL).
Van Riemsdyk played college hockey with the University of New Hampshire in the NCAA Men's Division I Hockey East conference. In his sophomore year, van Riemsdyk's outstanding play was rewarded with a selection to the 2012–13 All-Hockey East First Team.
On November 9, 2014, van Riemsdyk earned his first NHL point with an assist in a 5–2 victory over the San Jose Sharks. On February 25, 2015, van Riemsdyk was moved from the Blackhawks to their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs, after recovering from a fractured patella suffered on November 19. Shortly after recovering, van Riemsdyk injured his wrist in April 2015 while playing for Rockford. He underwent successful surgery but missed two months whilst rehabilitating. Van Riemsdyk was recalled by the Blackhawks on May 22. He made his playoff debut on June 8 in game three of the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals. Van Riemsdyk won his first Stanley Cup in his rookie season, as the Blackhawks defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in six games.
On July 7, 2015, van Riemsdyk signed a two-year contract extension to remain with the Blackhawks. In the 2015–16 season, on October 10, 2015, van Riemsdyk scored his first NHL career goal against Jean-François Bérubé of the New York Islanders.
Having been exposed by the Blackhawks at the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, van Riemsdyk was selected by the Vegas Golden Knights on June 21, 2017. The following day, he was traded by the Golden Knights along with a seventh-round pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. On July 5, 2018, he signed a two-year, $4.6 million contract extension with the Hurricanes.
He is the younger brother of James van Riemsdyk who plays in the NHL for the Philadelphia Flyers. A third brother, Brendan van Riemsdyk, joined the University of New Hampshire program as a freshman forward in 2016–17.
