Jamie McBain was born on February 25, 1988 in Edina, Minnesota. A product of the University of Wisconsin, McBain twice represented the United States at the World Junior Championship and was named the WCHA Player of the Year in 2009.

Drafted in the second round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Carolina Hurricanes, McBain joined the club's AHL affiliate, the Albany River Rats, in 2008.

Because of his strong offensive play in the AHL, McBain got the chance to make his NHL debut during the 2009-10 season. He would appear in 14 games for the Hurricanes, putting up an impressive 10 points and even scored his first NHL goal in dramatic fashion - in overtime against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins.

As a member of the Hurricanes, McBain would continue to develop as an NHL defender. In 2010-11 he recorded 30 points and followed that up with 27 points the following year. His strong play did not go unnoticed. McBain was named to represent the United States at the 2013 World Hockey Championship, where he helped capture the bronze medal.

On June 30, 2013, McBain's time in the Hurricanes' organization would come to an end. He was traded to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Andrej Sekera.

McBain would leave the Sabres organization as a free agent, signing a professional try-out contract with the Los Angeles Kings prior to the 2014-15 season. He would spend begin the season in the American Hockey League with the Manchester Monarchs and would go on to appear in 26 games for the Kings. After just one year with the Kings, McBain was once again a free agent. This time he signed with the Arizona Coyotes and would join the club for the 2016-17 season.

McBain spent the majority of the 2016-17 season in the AHL with the Tucson Roadrunner. In 74 games for the club he recorded eight goals and added 35 assists. As a free agent once again in the summer of 2017, he signed a deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
