Playing career

Hanley played Junior A with the Newmarket Hurricanes before spending four seasons with the UMass Minutemen ice hockey of the NCAA.[2] Following his college career, he signed his first professional contract with the American Hockey League's Portland Pirates.[2] He spent two seasons (2013–2015) in Portland including a short demotion to the ECHL's Gwinnett Gladiators.[2]

On July 1, 2015, Hanley signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Montreal Canadiens.[3] He began the 2015-16 season with the Canadiens' affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps. On March 20, 2016, the Canadiens recalled him.[4] He made his NHL debut that evening in a 4-1 loss to the Calgary Flames.[5] Two nights later, he recorded his first two career NHL points (two assists) in a 4-3 win over the Anaheim Ducks.[6] He finished the season with six assists in ten games for the Canadiens, and 13 points in 64 games for the IceCaps.

On June 22, 2016, the Canadiens signed Hanley to a one-year, two-way contract extension.[7] He spent the majority of the 2016-17 season with the IceCaps.

On July 1, 2017, Hanley signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Arizona Coyotes.[8] He appeared in five games for the Coyotes during the 2017-18 season, as well as 52 for the American League's Tucson Roadrunners.

On July 1, 2018, Hanley signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Dallas Stars.[9] On February 20, 2019, the Stars signed Hanley to a two-year contract extension.[10] He split the 2018-19 season between Dallas (16 games) and the Texas Stars (60 games). On May 1, 2019, he made his NHL playoff debut in Game 4 of the Stars' second round matchup against the St. Louis Blues.[11] It was his lone postseason appearance, as he suffered an upper-body injury.[12]

On September 10, 2020, Hanley recorded his first career playoff point, assisting on Jamie Benn's goal during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Vegas Golden Knights.[13] On September 19, he scored his first career NHL goal in a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning during Game 1 of the 2020 Stanley Cup Finals.[14]
