Hansen speaks on the phone after the trade deadline
Jannick Hansen speaks on the phone with the media following his trade to the San Jose Sharks
Jannik Hansen on joining the San Jose Sharks:
"What I've seen from San Jose the last couple of years, they seem to be on a roll and it's nice to join a dressing room that seems like they're in sync."
Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson on Hansen:
"You have to integrate in pretty quickly so first we look at the playing style, fit and need, and then just making sure he's a great teammate and he came back highly respected that way."
Head Coach Peter DeBoer on Hansen:
"Our goal was to acquire depth and good depth and have competition up here every night."
Captain Joe Pavelski on Hansen:
"We've got a good group and a lot of confidence in each other. To add a player like that, it only builds that confidence."
Alternate Captain Logan Couture on Hansen:
"He's very difficult to play against. You notice him when he's on the ice, he's got speed. He's a guy that fits anywhere in our lineup. This team and organization are in a "win now" mode so I think it's a great pickup by Doug."
