Playing CareerEdit

Dennis was drafted in the sixth round (172nd overall) by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

After spending three years with Adler Mannheim of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) in his native Germany, he signed with the Flyers in 2002.

Dennis spent the next two seasons bouncing between the NHL team and the American Hockey League (AHL)'s Philadelphia Phantoms, but he played the entire 2004–05 season with the Phantoms during the lockout, winning the 2005 Calder Cup.

In both seasons after the lockout, Dennis was involved in a midseason trade. On January 20, 2006, Dennis was sent to the Phoenix Coyotes for Petr Nedved. The following year on January 8, 2007,the Coyotes sent him to the Carolina Hurricanes on January 8 in exchange for center Kevyn Adams.

On September 14, 2009, Dennis signed a one-year $2.25 million contract with the Florida Panthers.

On March 3, 2010, Dennis and Matt Bartkowski were traded to the Boston Bruins for Byron Bitz, Craig Weller and a second round draft pick.

In June of 2010, Dennis was re-signed by Boston to a four-year contract worth $13 million.

In 2010–11, Dennis had a career-high 32 points during the regular season.[ He then had 11 points in the playoffs to help the Bruins win the Stanley Cup. He drew attention for his outstanding play during the playoffs, at one point being cited as a potential Conn Smythe Trophy winner.

Dennis is the second German-born player to win the Stanley Cup, following his favorite player growing up, Uwe Krupp,

On December 27, 2013 during an away game against the Ottawa Senators, Dennis was taken down by an Ottawa skater that resulted with his ACL and MCL knee ligaments being injured, ending his play for the season with 6 to 8 months away from hockey following surgery to repair the ligaments.
