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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
