Bruins Sign Christian Hanson To One Year, Two-Way Contract

The Bruins announced today that they signed Christian Hanson to a one-year, two-way contract. The 6'4, 220 pound center from Glens Falls, NY started his career with the Maple Leafs, playing primarily in their farm system for the AHL Marlies. He spent last season with the Hershey Bears, where he picked up 10 goals and 11 assists in 52 games. Don't expect to see Hanson up with Boston, and if you do, the situation is probably pretty dire. He's a depth signing to help in Providence. Interestingly enough, the press release issued by the team directly states: " Hanson’s contract will be worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the AHL level." It's pretty nice that teams are revealing contract numbers now instead of saying that the numbers will not be disclosed at this time. (And yes, he is related to Dave Hanson, who played one of one of the Hanson brothers from Slap Shot. Expect the number of Chiefs jerseys at Providence games to bump up a little.)
