MacIver was not drafted by an NHL franchise and instead took the university route in order to reach the NHL. The defenceman played four seasons with the University of Minnesota Duluth, where he was a two-time All American and a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, awarded to the NCAA's top player, for the 1985-86 season. While playing at the University of Minnesota - Duluth, MacIver earned a communications degree and signed as a free agent with the NHL's New York Rangers upon graduation.
He played 500 regular season games in the NHL, scoring 55 goals and 230 assists for 285 points and collecting 350 penalty minutes. A career highlight came during the Ottawa Senators' debut season of 1992-93, when Maciver led the team in scoring with 17 goals and 46 assists for 63 points in 80 games. In the spring of 1996, he scored the final goal in Winnipeg Jets' history prior to the team's relocation to Phoenix in the sixth game of a first round playoff series against the Detroit Red Wings.
In 2006, Maciver was hired by the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks to serve as the club's director of player development, and was promoted to director of player personnel in 2011. After Marc Bergevin left the club to become the general manager of the Montreal Canadiens for the 2012-13 season, Maciver was promoted to assistant general manager.
