Hamilton signed his first professional contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs for approximately $4,000 a year and donned the Blue and White sweater for the first time during the 1935-36 season. He played only seven games for the Leafs that year, spending most of his time with the IHL Syracuse Stars. He was back for 39 games the following year, and every year thereafter through the 1944-45 he played in Toronto. Hamilton was part of the 1942 "Miracle" squad that won the Stanley Cup after going down three games to none against Detroit. He lifted the Stanley Cup again in 1945 while still with the Leafs.

In July of that year he was traded to Chicago for cash and future considerations. He played the whole season for the Hawks in 1945-46, and ten games the following season, before being named playing coach of the Hawks minor league affiliate in Kansas City. He took that team to the USHL championship that year and spent two more years with Kansas City before moving on to coach the Toronto Marlboros.
