Biography

Denny, 29, joined the Devils last February having been on the radar of the EIHL champions for two years. Prior to that he was at Bolzano in the Austrian league, where he ended the season as third-highest points scorer.

New Hampshire-born Denny spent four seasons with Yale University, helping them win the league title in his second season and finishing in the top 4 scorers on his team in every season.

2012 saw him get his first taste of the European game since turning professional, with ESV Kaufbeuren in Germany before a move to Briançon in France for a season which saw the team win the championship; he was the club’s leading goalscorer with 21 goals and 27 assists in 25 fixtures.

Denny is a gritty player to play against, with great hands and an excellent finish around the net. He is strong down low on the powerplay and his experience will be vital to us - Peter Russell

In 2014 Denny was the leading goalscorer at IF Frisk Asker in Norway, picking up 68 points in 45 games – a season which saw his talent recognised with a move to Tingsryds in Sweden’s Allsvenskan league for 2015.  Then last season he was a part of the triumphant Cardiff Devils roster which topped the Elite League and EIHL Earhardt Conference as well as winning the EIHL Cup – and now he brings that experience to EIHL newcomers the Lightning.
