The Bruins announced Monday that they have signed former Maple Leafs center Christian Hanson to a one-year, two-way deal. Hanson, 26, last played in the NHL [1] in the 2010-11 season and spent last season playing for the Hershey Bears, the Capitals’ AHL affiliate.

Hanson will make $600,000 in the NHL [2] or $105,000 in the AHL next season for the B’s. The 6-foot-4, 228-pounder had 10 goals and 11 assists for 21 points and 42 penalty minutes in 52 games for the Bears last season.

The Notre Dame [3] product has played 42 career NHL [1] games, all of which were with the Maple Leafs, and has three goals and nine assists for 12 points and 22 penalty minutes at the NHL [2] level.

Hanson’s father is Dave Hanson, a former player who totaled 33 NHL games between the Red Wings and North Stars between 1978-1980, but is better known for playing Jack Hanson in the film “Slap Shot.”
