 SPECTOR’S NOTE: Hansen, 27, was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent next summer. He’s entering the final season of a three-year contract at a cap hit of $1.35 million per season, so he’s getting a nice bump in salary on this new deal.

He’s become a versatile play-maker for the Canucks, possessing good speed, two-way skills and can play both wings.

For a club in transition attempting to restock for the future while remaining competitive now, the Canucks needed to keep a player like Hansen in the fold.

  1. Hansen is a good player for sure. Brings intensity every game. Strange enough he was a big scorer in the Dub with Portland WH but it’s just never translated to the NHL. Other players on the team tell he’s scores sick goals in practise to, so who knows what the future brings

  2. Excellent re-signing!
