Laich started playing minor hockey in his hometown. During the 1999–2000 season, he was the top scorer & most valuable player for the midget AAA Tisdale Trojans. He was the runner-up for league MVP.

Laich started his junior hockey career with the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League (WHL) during the 2000–01 season. He played in 71 games with the Warriors, scoring nine goals and adding 21 assists. Laich was awarded the club’s Scholastic Player of the Year for the 2000–01 season. After the season, he was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the sixth round, 193rd overall, of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He started the 2001–02 season with the Warriors but was traded to the Seattle Thunderbirds.

Laich spent the rest of his junior career with the Thunderbirds. He was named the team’s Most Dedicated Player after the 2001–02 season. He was named the WHL’s Western Conference MVP. Laich was also named to the WHL’s Western Conference First All-Star Team and the Canadian Hockey League’s Third All-Star Team.

Brooks attended the Ottawa Senators training camp before the 2002–03 season. He played his first professional game in the AHL for the Binghamton Senators in 2003. He made his NHL debut with the Senators on February 3, 2003, against the New Jersey Devils. Later in the season, he was traded to the Washington Capitals. After the trade, he reported to the Capitals’ AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates. The NHL lockout saw Laich spend the entire 2004–05 season with the Pirates.

During the 2005–06 season, Laich played in the Capitals & their new AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears. After the Capitals’ season was over, Laich rejoined the Bears for their playoff run & helped the team capture the Calder Cup. Laich played the entire 2006–07 season with the Capitals. After the season, Laich & the Capitals went to salary arbitration, where he was awarded a one-year contract worth $725,000.

Laich played in all 82 games for the Capitals during the 2007–08 season. As a restricted free agent after the season, Laich signed a three-year deal with the team on July 9, 2008.

The 2008–09 season saw Laich play in all 82 games for the Capitals again. Laich’s streak of consecutive games played broke in the 2009–10 season, when he missed four games with a cheekbone injury in February 2010. On February 10, shortly after returning from injury, Laich recorded his first career NHL hat trick, against the Montreal Canadiens.

During the 2010–11 season, the Capitals participated in the 2011 NHL Winter Classic against the Pittsburgh Penguins. On June 28, 2011, he signed a six-year, $27 million contract extension worth $4.5 million per season.

Prior to the start of the lockout-shortened 2012-2013 playing season, Laich played for the Kloten Flyers of Switzerland’s National League. He also reportedly suffered a groin injury, which limited his play upon his return stateside with the NHL.

Except for a minor shoulder injury resulting in him missing 16 games, Laich returned to full health in 2014-15. He finished with 7 goals & 20 points in 66 games played.

In the 2015–16 season, Laich’s offensive production rapidly declined. On February 27, 2016, the Capitals placed Laich on waivers for the purpose of sending him to the Hershey Bears of the AHL. The following day, on the eve of the trade deadline, Laich was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, his boyhood team. 

Laich returned to Washington a few days later where the Capitals honored the centreman with a video tribute during the first period & a long standing ovation from the hometown fans & his former teammates. The Maple Leafs lost the game 3-2.

He played for Toronto Marlies in the 2016-17 season.

Laich debuted with Team Canada at the 2003 World Junior Championships. In a game against Sweden, Laich scored Canada’s first goal of the tournament. Canada won a silver medal. His next experience with Team Canada came at the 2010 World Championships, where Canada finished seventh.
