HANSON BROTHER IN THE FROZEN FOUR
“Yeah, sure. Old-time hockey! Like Eddie Shore.”
Great story in today’s Tribune about young Christian Hanson, the junior defenseman on the Irish hockey team. His dad just happens to be Dave Hanson, from the hilarious movie “Slap Shot”.
“His father, playing with the World Hockey Association’s Birmingham Bulls in the mid-1970s, was about to square off on the ice with Bobby Hull, the Golden Jet himself. Preparing to throw a punch, Hanson’s father grabbed the top of Hull’s head, then abruptly lost his grip.
Seconds later, Dave “Killer” Hanson realized he had a fistful of Hull’s toupee.”
Great article about both father and son. Christian Hanson will be playing in the Frozen Four for the Irish. Maybe like Eddie Shore.
