Dan Woodley was born December 29, 1967 in Oklahoma City, Oklahome. The first choice, 7th overall, of the Vancouver Canucks in the 1986 Entry Draft, Woodley was a product of the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League.

After spending the majority of the 1983-84 season with the Summerland Buckaroos of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League, Woodley played in six games with the Portland Winter Hawks before joining them on a full time basis for the 1984-85 season. He recorded 282 points in 202 games (regular season and playoffs) for the Winter Hawks and was a member of the West Division at the 1987 Western Hockey League All-Star Game.

The 1987-88 season saw Dan Woodley make his NHL debut, with the Vancouver Canucks. Although he spent the majority of the season with the Flint Spirits of the International Hockey League, Woodley played five games with the Canucks, scoring his first career goal on his first shot. Ranking fifth on the team in scoring with the Spirits, Woodley captured the Ken McKenzie Trophy as the IHL's best American-born rookie.

Woodley began the 1988-89 season with the Milwaukee Admirals of the International Hockey League before the Vancouver traded him to the Montreal Canadiens midway through the season where he finished the 1988-89 season with the team's affiliate in Sherbrooke in the AHL. He spent the entire 1989-90 season in Sherbrooke and the early part of the 1990-91 season with Fredericton, where the franchise had moved during the off season. Woodley joined the Kansas City Blades and finished his season with the Albany Choppers, both of the IHL.

The Winston-Salem Thunderbirds of the East Coast Hockey League was Woodley's home for the 1991-92 season before being on the move once again in 1992-93. Joining the Flint Bulldogs of the Colonial Hockey League in 1993-94, Woodley spent only one season in Flint before being on the move once again the following season. The Muskegon Fury of the Colonial Hockey League would be Woodley's ninth team in seven years, although it was also his most productive, with 43 goals and 58 assists for 101 points in 58 games.

A return to Muskegon in 1994-95 with the Mohawks (formerly Fury) in the early part of the season awaited Woodley before ending it with the Saginaw Wheels. At the conclusion of the 1994-95 season, Dan Woodley had played in five career NHL games, scoring two goals
