Josh Hennessy (born February 7, 1985, Brockton, Massachusetts) is an ice hockey player currently playing in the Ottawa Senators organization of the National Hockey League.


Playing career



Hennessy was drafted 17th overall by the Quebec Remparts at the 2001 QMJHL draft. He finished the 2001โ€“02 season with 40 points, good for the 6th in scoring on his team.

Hailing from New England, Hennessy did not speak French when he arrived. However, during his first year, he made an effort to learn which started to put him in a leadership role. The team rewarded his efforts by giving him the assistant captain's role in his second year with the team. That season Hennessy and his team qualified for the 2003 Memorial Cup but Quebec was eliminated at the after round-robin tournament losing all three games.

During his third year, Hennessy, now fluent in French, was named the captain of the Quebec Remparts. That year Hennessy scored well and put up a decent amount of points. However, an injury ended his season and knocked him out of the playoffs. He was then drafted by the NHL's San Jose Sharks 43rd overall in 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

In the 2004โ€“05 season, coaching staff had high hopes for him and his development. Hennessey recorded approximately the same numbers for the third straight year, but ended up first in team scoring that season. Expectations were higher, especially since he was playing with top prospect, Alexander Radulov.

Josh Hennessy is one of the reasons why so many New England hockey players such as Joey Ryan, Andrew Andricopoulos and Jordan LaVallee joined the Quebec Remparts the following years.


Hennessy started his pro career with the San Jose Sharks' farm team the Cleveland Barons in 2005-06. He led the Barons in goals (24) and assists (39) for 63 points in 80 games. He was one of only two players on the team to play in every regular-season game. Hennessy holds the franchise records for both goals and points in a season by a rookie and was named the Barons Rookie of the Year for the 2005โ€“06 season.

Hennessy was traded by the Sharks, along with Tom Preissing, to the Ottawa Senators via the Chicago Blackhawks on July 9, 2006 in a three-way deal. Ottawa traded Bryan Smolinski and Martin Havlat to Chicago who sent Mark Bell to San Jose while sending Michal Barinka and a 2008 2nd round pick to Ottawa.

Hennessy then spent the majority of 2006-07 season with the Senators AHL's affiliate, the Binghamton Senators. During the season on his second call up to Ottawa, Hennessy scored his first NHL goal on January 7, 2007 against the Philadelphia Flyers.
