Charles "Chay" Genoway (born December 20, 1986) is a Canadian ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing for Finnish club, Jokerit in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Genoway was born in Morden, Manitoba, but grew up in Swan River, Manitoba.

Playing career[edit]

An undrafted free agent from Morden, Manitoba, Genoway graduated from the University of North Dakota as the fourth-highest-scoring defenceman in Fighting Sioux history[1] with 127 points in 168 career games. His 168 games are tied for the most by a UND defenceman, and he also ranks tied for second all-time among Sioux rearguards in game-winning goals (seven), fourth in power-play goals (14), fifth in assists (101), and seventh in goals (26).[2]

Upon completion of his collegiate career, Genoway was signed to a one-year entry level contract with the Minnesota Wild on April 12, 2011. In the 2011–12 season, his first as a professional, Genoway was assigned to AHL affiliate the Houston Aeros. In 72 games as a fixture on the Aeros blueline he scored 7 goals and 36 points. He received his first NHL recall at the tail end of the season and made his NHL debut, registering an assist, in a solitary game for the Wild against the Phoenix Coyotes on April 7, 2012.

On June 29, 2012, he was re-signed to a one-year extension with the Wild.[3] After 52 games with the Aeros during his second season within the Wild organization in 2012–13, he was traded to the Washington Capitals in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick on March 14, 2013.[4]

On August 1, 2014, having left the Capitals organization as a free agent, Genoway signed abroad on a one-year deal with Dinamo Riga of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).[5] After a year in Riga, he moved on to fellow KHL team HC Spartak Moscow, where he spent the 2015-16 season. In May 2016, he signed with Jokerit, a Helsinki-based KHL team.[6]
