On Tuesday the Toronto Maple Leafs signed forward Christian Hanson to a two-year, entry-level contract. Hanson helped the Peters Township hockey team win the 2002 Penguins Cup and state championship. He spent the last four years playing at Notre Dame.
Hanson, a Venetia native, might be more famous for his father, Dave, who formed part of the trio of Hanson brothers from the "Slap Shot" movies.
This season, Hanson posted career numbers of 16 goals and 15 assists in 37 games with the Irish.
