Dan Gendur (born May 21, 1987) is a professional ice hockey winger currently playing for the Rapid City Rush of the CHL. Gendur played junior hockey in British Columbia, spending one season in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) before four seasons in the major junior Western Hockey League (WHL), split between the Prince George Cougars and the Everett Silvertips. While in the WHL he was selected in the seventh round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL). Gendur turned professional in 2008 with the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League (AHL), a minor league affiliate of the Canucks, before being reassigned to the Victoria Salmon Kings of the ECHL, another Canucks affiliate. Gendur would also play for the ECHL's Johnstown Chiefs. In 2010 Gendur was involved in a trade between the Canucks and Nashville Predators. As a result he started the 2010–11 season with the Predators AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals, before joining the Killer Bees.
A native of Vancouver, Gendur played Junior A hockey for one season in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) with the Cowichan Valley Capitals. The following season, in 2004–05, he joined the major junior ranks with the Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League (WHL). In his draft year, in 2006–07, Gendur was traded to the Everett Silvertips and accumulated 49 points between the two teams. He was then drafted in the off-season by the his hometown team, the Vancouver Canucks in the 7th round, 206th overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Gendur returned to the Silvertips upon being drafted and recorded a team-leading 84 points, eighth overall in league scoring and good for WHL West Second Team All-Star honours.
In 2008–09, Gendur turned pro and was assigned by the Canucks to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League (AHL). After a brief stint with Manitoba, he was re-assigned to the Victoria Salmon Kings of the ECHL. On December 10, 2009 Gendur was reassigned to the Johnstown Chiefs after only playing eight games with Victoria in the 2009–10 season.
Prior to the 2010–11 season Gendur was traded, along with Shane O'Brien to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Ryan Parent and Jonas Andersson. With the intention of joining the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees of the Central Hockey League before the trade, Gendur travelled via the Milwaukee Admirals before rejoining the Killer Bees with the Predators permission.
In his second season with Rio Grande, Gendur lead the team in scoring with 73 points to finish 7th amongst the league leaders. With the Killer Bees rendered defunct at years end, he signed a one-year contract with inaugural ECHL club, the Evansville IceMen on July 30, 2012.
