McCarron was rated as a top prospect who fulfilled the expectation to be a first round selection at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He trained with the USA Hockey National Team Development Program team from 2011 to 2013, and won a Silver Medal with Team USA at the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships.
McCarron initially committed to play for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Western Michigan Broncos men's ice hockey team in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC), before opting out to continue his development through Canadian junior ranks with the London Knights in the Ontario Hockey League. Originally playing (and drafted) as a right winger, McCarron made the switch to center during his first OHL season. On July 11, 2013, McCarron was signed to a three-year entry-level contract with the Montreal Canadiens.
In the midst of the 2014–15 season, McCarron was traded by the Knights to OHL contenders, the Oshawa Generals on January 1, 2015, with whom he won the J. Ross Robertson Cup and the Memorial Cup.
After a surprisingly good start in his first professional year in 2015–16, he was called up by the Canadiens and played two games in the NHL, though without picking up any points. He was later called up again by the Canadiens on February 26, 2016, after forwards Dale Weise and Tomáš Fleischmann were traded to the Blackhawks. On the 27th, he recorded his first NHL point, an assist on a Devante Smith-Pelly goal.
