A defenceman, Chambers was selected by the Minnesota North Stars in the 1987 NHL Supplemental Draft. He played parts of four seasons with the North Stars, including the 1991 improbable run to the finals. He is well-known for a play in which he was beaten one-on-one by Mario Lemieux for one of the most memorable goals in Stanley Cup Finals history when the Penguins captain sifted the puck through Chambers' skates, went around him, and scored on North Stars goaltender Jon Casey.
Chambers was traded to the Washington Capitals prior to the 1991–92 NHL season, however he only played two games with the Capitals due to injuries. Left exposed in the 1992 NHL Expansion Draft, he was claimed by the Tampa Bay Lightning. After playing two and a half seasons with the Lightning, he was traded to the New Jersey Devils, and his strong defensive play helped guide the Devils to their first Stanley Cup in 1995.
Chambers would join the Dallas Stars prior to the 1997–98 NHL season, and a year later he would help guide the Stars to their first Stanley Cup Championship in 1999. He retired after only playing four games for the Stars the next season.
