Christian Hanson Signs with Leafs
This is Christian Hanson. TSN is reporting the unrestricted free agent will sign with the Toronto Maple Leaf today.
Hanson is a strapping 6'4" 225lb center who is graduating from the NCAA's Notre Dame Fighting Irish. He had 16 goals and 31 points in 37 games this season.
Hanson will be most notably in the headlines today because of his lineage. He is the son of Dave Hanson, a former minor pro ruffian with stints in the NHL and WHA. He is more famous for his role in the movie Slap Shot, where he acts as Jack of the cult hero Hanson Brothers.
