Kolesar started the notable part of his hockey career with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL in 1991. Kolesar did not start producing until his second year, but by his third year with the team he was scoring at a point-per-game clip. This offensive production got the attention of the Toronto Maple Leafs who signed him to a contract on 24 May 1994.
Kolesar played the next season with Toronto's AHL affiliate, the St. John's Maple Leafs, and managed to get 30 points in his first pro season. The next year, the 1995–96 season, would be Kolesar's best year in hockey. He played 21 games with the Leafs, and managed to play 3 games in the playoffs, even scoring a shorthanded goal in the club's playoff series against the St. Louis Blues.
Kolesar only played 7 games with the Leafs the next year, however, and he never played in the NHL again after that. He did not retire, though, he continued to play in England, Germany, and then a one-game stint in Italy. He finished up his career in 2003–04 in the Central Hockey League with the Wichita Thunder.
