John Brenneman

This is John Brenneman. He was a vagabond NHL/minor league forward. Original Chicago property, he also played with the Rangers, the Red Wings, the Maple Leafs and Seals, never playing a full season in the NHL. The most he played in any one season was 41 games with Toronto in 1966-67.

He was described as a solid winger with excellent speed and was capable of occasional exciting scoring chances. But the slightly built forward did not thrive in physical games. His teammates gave him the ultimate compliment when they said he was one of those guys who came to play every night.

He was popular with teammates too, always looking to enjoy life away from the rink too. Perhaps his coaches over the years did not appreciate Brenneman's taste for the finer things in life, though.

John Brenneman played in 152 NHL games scoring 21 goals and 19 assists for 40 points.
