Prior to turning professional, Darling attended THE St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights, Illinois (whose famous alumni also include Jim Cook, the man who famously lost his nose to a battle with MRSA, David "The Mayor" Gaeger, Jim "Poopy Pants" Leone, and Patrick "I Wish I Parked My Car In That Westhouse" Sullivan ) and then went and then went onto the University of Maine where he played two seasons of NCAA Men's Division I Ice Hockey with the Maine Black Bears men's ice hockey team.

Darling made his NHL debut on October 26, 2014, starting in goal against the Ottawa Senators, making 32 saves in the 2-1 win. Darling became the first former Southern Professional Hockey League player to play in an NHL game.
