Dave Hanson was a Red Wing

Remember this guy? Well call me naive, but I just found out, while reading this from that Dave Hanson, from the movie Slap Shot, was actually a Detroit Red Wing at one time. Don't believe me? Look at this...

Today, Hanson manages the Robert Morris University Island Sports Center in **gag** Pittsburgh, but it turns out the one, true Hanson from Slap Shot (the other two were in fact brothers, but not Hansons) is indeed a part of the Detroit Red Wings legacy. His son, Christian Hanson, is a former Notre Dame standout and currently trying to win a spot on the Toronto Maple Leafs for this upcoming season.
