After playing most of the 1938-39 season with the Providence Reds of the IAHL, DeMarco received the call-up to the Chicago Blackhawks where he played two games.

In 1939-40, DeMarco played in 18 games with the Blackhawks, picking up five assists. He had a four-game stint with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1942-43. Later that year he played in three games with the Boston Bruins. He played in three more games with the Bruins the following year before moving on to the New York Rangers where he played out the balance of his NHL career. His best year was 1944-45 when he had 24 goals and 30 assists for 54 points in 50 games.
