A right winger, Oskar Nowak played ice hockey for Austria at the 1936 and 1948 Winter Olympics and played field hockey at the 1948 London Olympics. He skated for Austria at the 1935 and 1938 World Championships but then switched allegiance and was on the German team at the 1939 World Championships and 1940 Wintersportwoche, but he was back with Austria at the 1947 Worlds. He competed at the 1933 Spengler Cup when he was with Wien EKE. Nowak won two bronze medals at the European Championships, in 1939 for Germany and 1947 for Austria, in an era when the Worlds doubled as the Europeans.

He then played for Wiener EV, Wien City, and while in Germany, was with Berlin City and Rot-Weiss Berlin, before returning to Austria after the War with Wien EKE. Nowak retired after the 1947/48 season and was later inducted into the German Hockey Hall of Fame.
