Wiseman played his first junior Hockey for the Regina Crescents from 1924 to 1928, and then joined the Regina Argos for the 1928-29 season, and then the Regina Pats in 1929-30.
In 1930-31 and 1931-32, Wiseman played for the Chicago Shamrocks of the American Hockey Association / AHA before his NHL rights were transferred to the Detroit Red Wings from the Chicago Shamrocks (AHA) after AHA club owners purchased Detroit (NHL and IHL) franchises, September 2, 1932.

The legendary Eddie Shore, along with $5,000. The Bruins were just looking to dump their aging and increasingly cantankerous star.
The Bruins did not regret acquiring Wiseman. He played well in Boston, especially in the following season. After a strong regular season that saw him score 16 times and assist on 24 others (6th best total in the NHL) for a career best 40 points, he led all NHL shooters with 6 playoff goals as the Bruins won the 1941 Stanley Cup championship, with a four game sweep of the Detroit Red Wings.
Wiseman would play one more year in the NHL before World War II interrupted and, for all intents and purposes, ended his Hockey career. He served with the Royal Canadian Air Force out of Saskatoon while also playing senior Hockey with the Air Force team.
