Osborne played his junior career for the Niagara Falls Flyers of the OHL for three seasons, between 1979 and 1981. After his second year there, he was selected 46th overall by the Detroit Red Wings in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft.
As a rookie in the 1981–82 season he scored an impressive 26 goals and totaled 67 points, which would prove to be the second highest point total of his career, behind his 73 in the 1989–90 season as a Toronto Maple Leaf.
During the 1983 off-season he was traded to the New York Rangers in the trade that saw popular Ron Duguay leave the Big Apple.

At the 1987 trade deadline he was shipped to the Toronto Maple Leafs for his first stint there that lasted five and a half seasons. In Toronto he played on a line with Gary Leeman and Ed Olczyk called the GEM line. At the 1991 trade deadline he was sent to the Winnipeg Jets, but returned to the Leafs
