Daniels was the 136th draft pick overall, for the Hartford Whalers, in 1989, but did not play his first National Hockey League (NHL) game until 1993. Daniels stood out to his coaches in his debut game by accumulating nineteen minutes in penalties however, he continued to play in the American Hockey League (AHL) for the Springfield Indians until his second NHL game, in the 1994-95 season, again for the Hartford Whalers. In 1996 Daniels was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers, and later to the New Jersey Devils in 1997 where he played for two years before retiring from the NHL.
