Playing career

Denis was drafted 25th overall by the Colorado Avalanche at the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He mainly played for Colorado's AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, and played a total of 28 regular season games in 3 seasons for the Avalanche. On June 7, 2000, Denis was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets for a second round pick in the 2000 draft (Tomas Kurka). During the 2002–03 NHL season, he set the NHL record for most minutes in a season with 4,511, playing 77 regular season games that season.

On June 30, 2006, he was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Fredrik Modin and Fredrik Norrena. On December 28,2007, due to his sub-par and inconsistent play, the Lightning waived Denis. After he cleared waivers, Denis was sent down to the Lightning's AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals.The Tampa Bay Lightning recalled Denis from Norfolk of the American Hockey League on Mar 26, 2008. Denis replaced goalie Jonathan Boutin, who was reassigned to Norfolk Admirals a day after the Tampa Bay Lightning recalled him from the minor league team on an emergency basis because starting goalie Mike Smith had a sprained left ankle. He was released by the Tampa Bay Lightning on June 24, 2008, and then signed a contract with his hometown Montreal Canadiens on July 3, 2008. On October 5, 2008 he was placed on waivers. After not being claimed, he currently plays for Montreal's AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs.
