Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Joel Hanley
Joel Hanley was born on June 8, 1991, in Keswick, Ontario. A product of the OJHL, he attended University of Massachusetts Amherst and was undrafted by an NHL club and signed with the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League upon completion of his collegiate career.

In the summer of 2015, Hanley signed a two-way contract with the Montreal Canadiens and would begin the 2015-16 season with the club's AHL affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps. He would appear in 64 games for the IceCaps before a string of injuries to Canadiens' defenders earned him his first trip to the NHL. Hanley mage his NHL debut on March 20, 2016, and would appear in 10 games for Montreal as the 2015-16 season came to an end. On July 1, 2017, as an unrestricted free agent, Hanley signed with the Arizona Coyotes. He would spend the 2017-18 season predominantly with the Tucson Roadrunners of the AHL, but would see action in five games for the Coyotes. A free agent again in the summer of 2018, Hanley signed with the Dallas Stars.
