He was considered a very promising talent, but injuries were a problem early in his career. Previously billed with "immense potential" ever since the Quebec Nordiques drafted him fourth overall in 1992, but never played for them. A shoulder injury incurred during the Leafs' 1994-95 training camp delayed Warriner's progression and forced him to spend practically the whole season in AHL. Overall, he played for several teams in the NHL, as well as the AHL, OHL, the Finnish SM-liiga and the Swiss league.

Warriner is also notable for having scored the first goal in the history of the then newly opened Air Canada Centre on February 20, 1999 as a member of the home Toronto Maple Leafs. Internationally, he spent 54 games with the Canadian national team and competed in the Lillehammer Olympics. He was also a member of the Canadian team that won the 2005 Deutschland Cup.
