Muzzin played his early minor hockey in the Woodstock Minor Hockey Association before moving on to play AAA in Brantford.
Muzzin was drafted 141st overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins. At age 16 Muzzin required herniated disc surgery. Unsigned by the Penguins from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League, Muzzin later signed as a free agent to a three-year entry level contract with the Los Angeles Kings on January 4, 2010.
Following the Kings' training camp and pre-season games, Muzzin made the Kings opening night roster for the 2010-11 NHL season. On November 3, 2010 Muzzin was assigned to the Kings' AHL affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs. However on November 9, 2010, the Kings recalled the defenseman to the NHL for a brief stint before again given a reassignment to the Monarchs in favor of defenseman Alec Martinez on November 23. In 2012, he was recalled during the playoffs, and was on the roster as a healthy scratch when they won the Stanley Cup. He did not appear in any games that season. Although he did not qualify to have his name engraved on the cup, he was included in the team picture.
On July 12, 2013, Muzzin and the Kings agreed to a new two-year contract.
