Irwin grew up in Toronto, Ontario playing minor hockey for the AA North Toronto program in the Yonge-Eglinton area of the city. He went to high school at Upper Canada College in Toronto, a member of Bremner's house. Irwin's family were the founders of the Irwin Toy Corporation. Irwin was selected in the 2003 OHL Draft out of AA hockey by the Brampton Battalion. He chose to pursue an NCAA scholarship and eventually signed with the St. Michael's Buzzers Jr.A. club of the OHA
He played hockey at the University of Vermont and in his senior year Irwin led Vermont in scoring during the 2009–10 season. Upon completion of his four-year collegiate career Irwin signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 29, 2010. With the Leafs out of playoff contention, Irwin immediately made his NHL debut at the end of the 2009–10 season on April 1, 2010.
In the final year of his entry level contract with the Leafs, due to injury and lack of form Irwin was reassigned to ECHL affiliate the Reading Royals by the Toronto Maple Leafs on November 11, 2011. After one game with the Royals, Irwin was then loaned to ECHL rival the Florida Everblades for the remainder of the season, where he became instrumental in helping capture the Kelly Cup.
On September 5, 2012, he was re-signed to a one-year ECHL contract with the Everblades.
