Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Joey Tenute
Joey Tenute was born April 2, 1983 in Hamilton, Ontario. The eighth round, 261st overall selection of the New Jersey Devils in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Tenute is a graduate of the OHLs Barrie Colts and Sarnia Sting.

A diminutive, yet offensively gifted forward, Tenute played four seasons in the OHL registering 271 points (95-176-271) before making his professional debut with the ECHLs South Carlolina Stingrays in 2004-05.

Following an impressive rookie season in the ECHL, Tenute signed as a free-agent with the Washington Capitals organization in the summer of 2005. Upon his arrival with the Caps organization, Tenute spent the majority of his first season with the club's AHL affiliate in Hershey, however, impressed the Caps brass enough to earn his first taste of the NHL in the latter stages of the 2005-06 season.

A key player in Hershey's run to the 2006 Calder Cup title, Tenute tallied five points (2-3-5) in the club's playoff drive. The following year as a free agent, Tenute signed with the Phoenix Coyotes.
