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.
He has won the Stanley Cup three times (1997, 1998 and 2002), all with the Detroit Red Wings.

On March 4, 2010 the Hartford Wolfpack released Dandenault from his Professional Tryout Agreement.
