He has appeared in 504 games during his 11-season NHL career with the Anaheim Ducks, Vancouver Canucks, Vegas Golden Knights, and Islanders, collecting 103 points (18G, 85A). He played in 12 games for Vegas when they won the Western Conference and went to the Stanley Cup Final in 2018.

Sbisa has appeared internationally for Switzerland on several occasions, including the 2010 Olympic Games and 2011 and 2012 World Championships. He also played for Team Europe under Jets head coach Paul Maurice at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Sbisa was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round, 19th overall, in the 2008 NHL Draft.
