Left winger Dale Krentz played 30 games over three seasons with the Detroit Red Wings in the late 1980s. He was a solid college and minor pro player who took his game to Europe where he thrived.

Born in Steinbach, Manitoba, Krentz played three years at Michigan State from 1982 to 1985. In June 1985 he was signed as a free agent by the Detroit Red Wings. He was sent to the AHL's Adirondack Red Wings for the 1985-86 season where he enjoyed a solid year with 46 points. Krentz became a valuable member of the AHL club while spending brief periods with Detroit.

In 1987-88 he scored 82 points and was placed on the AHL second all-star team. Feeling that he needed a change of scenery, Krentz left for Germany where he played five years with the Alder Mannheim club and one last year with the Rosenheim Star Bulls before retiring in 1996.
