Acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins with Kenny Agostino and the Penguins' first-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft in a trade for Jarome Iginla on March 27, 2013, Hanowski has 12 goals and 14 assists (26 points) with Abbotsford in his first full season as a professional.
Hanowski signed an entry-level contract with the Flames on April 12, 2013 and played five games with Calgary last season, when he scored his first NHL goal in his debut. He was Pittsburgh's third-round pick (No. 63) in the 2009 draft.
It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
