Mathieu Dandenault (born February 3, 1976 age 36) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He played for the Detroit Red Wings and the Montreal Canadiens in the National Hockey League.
Dandenault was originally drafted as a right wing, but was converted into a defenceman during the 2001–02 season. After nine seasons with the Red Wings, who drafted him forty-ninth overall in the second round of the 1994 amateur draft, he played for HC Asiago in Italy in 2004–05 (due to the lockout) and upon his return to North America, he signed a 4 year contract with the Canadiens, his hometown team.
A free agent prior to the 2009–10 season, Dandenault was invited to the San Jose Sharks training camp. However, Dandenault was among the final cuts as the Sharks decided to release him on September 27, 2009. On October 21, 2009, the Hartford Wolf Pack, American Hockey League affiliate of the New York Rangers, signed Dandeneault to a Professional Tryout Agreement. On March 4, 2010 the Hartford Wolfpack released Dandenault from his Professional Tryout Agreement.
Mathieu is married to Marie-Christine and has one daughter, Amélia.
