He is the son of Bryan Hextall, brother of Bryan Hextall Jr, and uncle of the 1987 Conn Smythe Trophy winner goalie Ron Hextall and sportscaster Leah Hextall.

Dennis played two years at the University of North Dakota followed by brief stints in the EHL, CSHL, and American Hockey League. The left-winger broke into the NHL with the New York Rangers during the 1968 playoffs. The next few years he jumped back and forth between the AHL and NHL, spending time with the Rangers, Los Angeles Kings and California Golden Seals. He would secure a spot with the North Stars in 1972. Hextall played five seasons with the North Stars followed by another four with the Detroit Red Wings. His final two seasons were spent with the Washington Capitals where he retired with 681 games under his belt. In his thirteen NHL seasons he recorded a total of 153 goals, 350 assists, 503 points, and 1398 penalty minutes.
