08:23 AM ET 08.10 | If the name sounds familiar, you're a hockey fan. The past seven months, Christian Hanson has had a lot of unwanted time on his hands. Hanson, a Peters Township High School graduate, saw his season with the AHL's Hershey Bears come to an end in February when he took an opponent's skate to the right wrist. Now, the 26-year-old Pittsburgh native is anxious to get back on the ice. Hanson signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Boston Bruins earlier this month. ... "I'm not old, but at the same time, I'm not coming right out of college or juniors. It's do or die time for me." Hanson said he had a few teams approach him when free agency began July 1, but the Bruins offered him the best chance to make the NHL roster out of training camp.

I was more thinking it was, "I am eyeing up seconds" look

He's too busy lobbying the NFL to outlaw man-on-man defense.

I haven't been a Bruins fan since Bobby Orr was traded, but I would love to see him make the team.

He could dangle,
He could score,
Who else?
Bobby Orr

Is that anything like "Son of a window dressser"?

When he scored
The crowd roared,
And when he fought
the crowd said wow
Who else
But Gordie Howe

Have to admit it would be pretty funny if the kid came out for warmouts adorned in the Chiefs gear complete with glasses
