In the 2010–11 season with the Spirit, Szwarz was recognised as the team's Most Valuable Player and was awarded the Heart and Soul Award.[1]

Szwarz made his professional debut with the San Antonio Rampage in the 2009–10 season.

After a career-best year in the AHL with the Providence Bruins in scoring 54 points in 65 games in the 2016–17 season, Szwarz signed as a free agent with Providence's NHL affiliate the Boston Bruins on a one-year, two-way deal on July 1, 2017.[3]
