Adam Bennett (born March 30, 1971 in Georgetown, Ontario) is a former professional ice hockey defenceman and coach. He was selected in the first round of the 1989 NHL Entry Draft, 6th overall, by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Playing career[edit]

Bennett played junior with the Sudbury Wolves of the OHL. In his first season, he was drafted by the Blackhawks, but he played two more years in junior, culminating in an all-star selection at the end of the 1990–91 season. He turned professional immediately after the junior season ended, fitting in three games with the Indianapolis Ice of the IHL. Bennett spent the next two seasons splitting time in the IHL and the NHL, before finally being dealt to the Edmonton Oilers at the start of the 1993–94 NHL season. He played a career high 48 games for the Oilers, in what would be his last NHL season. He played just two more years of professional hockey, with the Cape Breton Oilers of the AHL and the Richmond Renegades of the ECHL.

Post-playing career[edit]

Bennett joined the Mississauga Ice Dogs of the OHL as an assistant coach for the 1998–99 season. He currently runs his own business, called "3 on 3 Hockey by Adam Bennett".
