Career highlights
Sources: AFL Tables,

Urquhart was the 21st pick in the 2006 AFL Draft, and made his senior debut on 31 May 2008, in round 10. Urquhart received a Rising Star nomination after his round 18 performance against Brisbane, when he had 22 possessions.[1] Urquhart signed a two-year deal with North Melbourne in August 2008.[2]

The 2010 season was a poor one for Urquhart, as he struggled to overcome niggling injuries, and he could only manage eight senior games.[3] During trade week, rumours surfaced that North Melbourne were going to trade Urquart, but Kangaroos coach Brad Scott dismissed the rumours only days later, declaring that "he's a required player".[3]

At the end of the 2012 season, Urquhart was delisted by the Kangaroos. Subsequently, in 2014 he signed with Essendon District Football League team Airport West.
