Perhaps better known as a head coach than a player, Maxwell was a true journeyman blueliner. Drafted by the North Stars from the Medicine Hat Tigers in 1975, Maxwell was also drafted in the WHA entry draft of the same year, being picked second overall by the Cleveland Crusaders and opted to play in the still-fledgling league. In 1978 the Stars got their man though, this time as a free agent, but only for 42 games.
Maxwell was traded to St. Louis, then the Winnipeg Jets, then Pittsburgh claimed him from waivers before he retired in 1985. Maxwell then moved into coaching, first returning to the Medicine Hat Tigers for a season, where he coached the team to the Memorial Cup in 1987, then to the Spokane Chiefs. The Ontario native spent five seasons in Washington with the Chiefs, lifting the cup again in 1991.
Maxwell would spend five seasons behind the bench in Spokane, then another six with the Lethbridge Hurricanes. After a brief stint with the Victoria Salmon Kings, Maxwell retired from coaching.
