In 2000, Ian signed with the Victoria Shamrocks, a Senior A team in the Western Lacrosse Association, where he played for three seasons. His time with the Shamrocks led to a career with the National Lacrosse League where he played for the Columbus Landsharks, Toronto Rock, Minnesota Swarm and the Rochester Knighthawks. With the Toronto Rock, Ian played on three championship teams; 2002, 2003, and 2005. Along the way he also represented Canada in a Heritage Cup game.
