Originally a San Jose Sharks‘ 2nd round pick in the 2003 draft (#43 overall) forward Josh Hennessy(11) only spent one season in their system with Cleveland Barons before he was involved in a big trade that sent him to Ottawa Senators.
For the 2011/2012 season, he was offered the opportunity to come home (he’s originally from Brockton, MA) and signed a one-year, two-way deal with Boston Bruins.
He was recently recalled to the NHL for the first time in a couple of years and skated 7:54 in his first game (an unfortunate 4-2 loss) with 2 penalty minutes for roughing.
Look for him to get another chance as the Bruins continue to fight off the injury bug.

After spending a year in North America, he headed back overseas playing a few years in the KHL with moderate success.
The 30-year old was considered pivotal in the team’s success and offered another two year deal to continue.
