Born in Blenheim, Ontario, Todd Warriner had played ten Junior C games for his hometown Blenheim Blades in 1988-89 before joining the Junior B team in Chatham and played 40 Junior B games in the OJHL. He was then drafted 3rd overall in the 1990 OHL Priority Draft by the Windsor Spitfires. In his major junior rookie season, he scored 64 points. In 1991-92, he scored 82 points in 50 games and was an OHL First Team All-Star. He also won the OHL and CHL Top Prospect awards.

In 1992-93, Warriner played 23 games with the Spitfires before being traded to the Kitchener Rangers for the final 32 games of the season. In seven playoff games, Warrnier scored an amazing 19 points. After a year with Canada's national team, he played one OHL playoff game with the Rangers in 1994.

The first round, fourth overall selection of the Quebec Nordiques in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft, Warriner made his professional debut with the AHL's Cornwall Aces during the team's 1994 playoff run before being traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in the summer of 1994. A grinding winger, Warriner spent his first two seasons split between the Leafs and the team's AHL affiliate in St. John's before becoming an NHL regular in 1997.

After parts of six seasons in Toronot, Warrier was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning where he spent two seasons before joining the Phoenix Coyotes in the summer of 2001. Warriner's stay in Phoenix lasted a mere 18 games before he was acquired by the Vancouver Canucks. Upon his arrival in Vancouver, the former first rounder spent the better part of the remainder of the season with the team's AHL affiliate in Manitoba.

Unable to earn a roster spot with the Canucks, the team dealt the speedy winger to the Philadelphia Flyers early into the 2002-03 season. Warrnier joined his sixth NHL team after only 13 games with Philly, landing in Nashville with the Predators.

On the international stage, Warriner was a silver medalist with Canada's under-18 junior team at the 1991 Phoenix Cup. In 1993-94, after joining Canada's national team and played 50 games in pre-Olympic play. At the 1994 Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer, Warriner helped Canada win a silver medal.
