Terrance James Brennan was born on April 3, 1989, in Moorestown Township, New Jersey. A product of the Quebec Major Junior League where he played for Saint John, St. John's, and Montreal, he was selected in the second round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres.

Brennan made his professional debut during the 2009-10 season in the American Hockey League with the Portland Pirates, the Sabres' affiliate. In 65 games for the club the defenceman would record 23 points.

Following better than two years at the American League level, Brennan would get his first taste of life in the NHL during the 2011-12 season. On November 23, 2011, Brennan played in his first NHL game for the Buffalo Sabres. He would also record his first NHL goal that same night. He would go on to appear in 11 games for the Sabres during the 2011-12 season.

On June 14, 2013 he was traded from the Panthers to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Bobby Butler, however Brennan was not qualified by the Predators and subsequently became an unrestricted free agent. He signed a one-year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 5, 2013.
