Jim Wiemer was selected in the 4th round, 83rd overall in the 1980 draft by the Buffalo Sabres. He played for three seasons with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League and was a member of the 1978-79 group that won the Memorial Cup. In his final year playing junior, Wiemer scored 41 goals and had 54 assists for 95 points.

It took him two full years of playing in the minor leagues with Buffalo's AHL farm team in Rochester before getting called up to the big team for 64 games in 1983-84. He tallied five goals and 15 assists. From there, much of his pro career was spent criss-crossing between NHL clubs and minor-league teams.

Wiemer had brief stints with the New York Rangers, Edmonton Oilers, and Los Angeles Kings over the following five years before managing to stick with the Boston Bruins for four seasons from 1989 to 1993. Wiemer's professional career ended after the 1994-95 season, playing the entire year for the Rochester Americans.
