Holzer was drafted in the fourth round, 111th overall, of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs. Drafted from playing in his native Germany with EC Bad Tölz, he made his debut in the top Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) with the DEG Metro Stars.
Holzer began the 2010–11 season with the Maple Leafs' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Toronto Marlies. On 3 November 2010, he was recalled from the minors to make his NHL debut on 6 November 2010.
In the 2012–13 season, Holzer was recalled by the Maple Leafs on 5 February 2013, and scored his first NHL goal on just the fourth shot of his NHL career against Michal Neuvirth of the Washington Capitals.
In the 2014–15 season, on 6 October 2014, the Maple Leafs waived Holzer. Unclaimed, he was later returned to the Toronto Marlies before on 15 November, the Maple Leafs recalled Holzer on an emergency, only to send him back down to the Marlies on 16 November. One week later, Holzer was recalled and remained with the Leafs to replace injured defenceman Roman Polák. On 2 March 2015, Holzer was traded by the re-tooling Maple Leafs to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenceman Eric Brewer and a fifth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft (traded to Washington Capitals).
On 26 June 2017, Holzer continued his tenure with the Ducks in agreeing to a two-year contract extension.
On 20 June 2019, Holzer agreed to continue to return for his fifth season within the Ducks organization, after he was re-signed to a one-year $850,000 contract extension. In the following 2019–20 season, Holzer remained on the Ducks roster, establishing a regular third-pairing role on blueline. In a career-high 46 games with the Ducks, Holzer added 1 goal and 4 points.
With the Ducks out of playoff contention at the NHL trade deadline, Holzer was traded by Anaheim to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Matt Irwin and a 2022 sixth-round draft pick on 24 February 2020.
