McNamara played with his only Stanley Cup winning team in Toronto as a member of the Blueshirts squad of 1913-14. He stayed in Toronto to play the following year with the Shamrocks and then returned to the Blueshirts before joining the Canadian Army during the World War I.

He was a member of the 228th Battalion team that participated in the National Hockey Association before having to drop out of the league when they were ordered overseas on February 10, 1917.

George and his brother, XXX, were known as the "Dynamite Twins" during their playing days because of their bone-crunching body checks.
