Corbett Charles "Corb" Denneny (born January 25, 1896 in Cornwall , Ontario , † January 16, 1963 in Toronto , Ontario) was a Canadian ice hockey player (center), who from 1917 to 1928 for the Ottawa Senators , Toronto Maple Leafs and Chicago Black Hawks played in the National Hockey League (NHL).


Denneny always stood in the shadow of his older brother Cy Denneny . But no other player was on so many top teams in Toronto.

After two years with the Cobalt McKinley Mines in the CoMHL, he joined the Toronto Shamrocks in the National Hockey Association . A year later, in 1915, he moved to the Toronto Blueshirts , the then top team in Toronto. After there were repeated disputes between Blueshirts owner Edward J. Livingstone and the NHA, the Toronto team was excluded and Corb Denneny moved to the Ottawa Senators in his hometown . To resolve the disputes in the NHA, the owners of four teams formed the National Hockey League and expelled Livingston. Nevertheless, they wanted to have a team in Toronto and so the Toronto Arenas were founded. Denneny played for the team and scored 20 goals in 22 games in the first NHL season 1917/18 . He reached the final series of the Stanley Cup with the team and scored three goals in the final tournament. In doing so, he helped his team to become the first Stanley Cup winner in NHL history.

The team was renamed Toronto St. Patricks after two seasons . With 24 goals he was the most successful player of his team in the first season. He was also able to win the Stanley Cup with the St. Patricks in the 1921/22 season.

Then he moved to the West Coast of Canada, where he played for the Vancouver Maroons in the Pacific Coast Hockey Association . Toronto received Jack Adams in return . He also reached the final tournament for the Stanley Cup with this team, but already for the 1923/24 season he returned to the NHL. Now he played for the Hamilton Tigers . There followed two seasons with the Saskatoon Crescents in the Western Canada Hockey League and WHL before he returned to Toronto. The team was now called Maple Leafs and he played in a row with Hap Day and George Patterson .

In the following years he came to 18 missions with the Chicago Black Hawks , but also played for the Saskatoon Sheiks in the Prairie Hockey League , in which he was the top scorer in 1927/28. Until 1931 he was still active and played in the AHA for the Minneapolis Millers and the Chicago Shamrocks, but also for a year with the Newark Bulldogs in the Canadian-American Hockey League .
