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.[1] In the 2013-14 season, Darling enjoyed his most successful AHL season earning 13 wins in 26 games with the Milwaukee Admirals.[2]

On July 1, 2014, the Chicago Blackhawks signed Darling as a free agent to his first NHL contract on a one-year deal.[3] Darling made his NHL debut on October 26, 2014, starting in goal against the Ottawa Senators, making 32 saves in the 2-1 win.[4][5] Darling became the first former Southern Professional Hockey League player to play in an NHL game.[6]
