Crisp played four seasons of major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) with the Erie Otters and Sudbury Wolves, registering a total of 55 goals, 42 assists, and 208 penalty minutes, in 184 regular season OHL games. Although his usual position is centre, on March 5, 2012, Crisp was pressed into duty as an emergency replacement goaltender for the Otter's when starting goaltender Ramis Sadikov was knocked unconscious soon after the start of the game. In his only appearance in net, Crisp blocked 33 shots, and was named the game's first star, in the 13-4 loss to the home team Niagara IceDogs.
Making his professional debut in the American Hockey League on April 2, 2014, Crisp played seven games with the Hamilton Bulldogs near the end of the 2013–14 AHL season while signed to a try-out agreement, and on April 24, 2014, the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL) signed Crisp to a three-year, entry-level contract.
He is a cousin (not a nephew as frequently reported) to former NHL player and coach Terry Crisp.
