Right-winger Corb Denneny enjoyed a solid NHL career that lasted parts of nine years. The younger brother of the legendary Cy Denneny also excelled in the NHA and various minor pro leagues.

Born in Cornwall, Ontario, Denneny first made a name for himself in the NOHA with the Cobalt and O'Brien Mines teams. He then spent three years as a solid offensive player in the NHA with the Shamrocks and Blueshirts of Toronto as well as the Ottawa Senators. In 1917-18 he joined the Toronto Arenas for the NHL's inaugural season and scored 20 goals in 21 games before helping the club win the Stanley Cup.

During the early 20's Denneny was a scoring star on the Toronto St. Pats. In 1919-20 he scored 24 goals and notched a league high 12 assists. He then registered consecutive 19-goal season and helped the St. Pats win the Stanley Cup in 1922. On January 26, 1921 he became the fifth NHLer to score at least five goals in a game when he victimized Howie Lockart of the Hamilton Tigers. He later spent a year with the PCHA's Vancouver Maroons where he was a second team all-star before returning to the NHL with Hamilton in 1923-24.

The talented winger ventured west in 1924 and played two years with the Saskatoon Crescents of the WCHL. After scoring 18 goals and a league best 16 assists in 1925-26, Denneny was named to the league all-star squad. Denneny was lured back east for the Toronto Maple Leafs' first season in 1926-27 and formed a solid combination with George Patterson and Hap Day. After playing briefly with the Chicago Black Hawks the next season, the veteran scorer led the Prairie League in goals as a member of the Saskatoon Sheiks. Denneny retired in 1931 after spending the majority of his last three seasons with the Minneapolis Millers and Chicago Shamrocks of the AHA.
