Undrafted, Garbutt attended Brown University, playing four years of collegiate hockey in the ECAC. He began his professional career in the Central Hockey League during the 2009–10 season with the Corpus Christi Icerays. In his second professional season, Garbutt signed in the ECHL with the Gwinnett Gladiators before he was loaned to and remained with the Chicago Wolves on an American Hockey League contract to end the 2010–11 season.
On July 1, 2011, Garbutt's prominent rise through the professional ranks continued when he was signed to his first NHL contract on a one-year two-way contract by the Dallas Stars as a free agent. In the 2011–12 season, Garbutt was recalled by Dallas from AHL affiliate, Texas and scored his first NHL goal on February 21, 2012, against Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens.
On July 16, 2012, the Stars re-signed Garbutt to a one-way, two-year contract worth $1.15 million.
