Maple Leafs, Hanson agree on one-year deal
Toronto Maple Leafs sign Christian Hanson.
Restricted free-agent forward Christian Hanson signed a one-year contract Tuesday to remain with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Hanson, 24, split last season between the Leafs and their AHL affiliate. In 31 NHL games, the 6-foot-3, 202-pound center had 2 goals and 7 points. In 38 games with the AHL Toronto Marlies, Hanson was fourth on the team with 31 points.

He finished his season playing for the U.S. at the World Championship. In six games, he had 1 assist and a plus-2 rating.

Hanson made his NHL debut when he joined the Leafs for five games last season after finishing his college career at Notre Dame. In four NCAA seasons, Hanson had 36 goals and 64 points in 140 games.


Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
