Son of the Hanson Brothers

Everyone knows the greatest hockey movie in history is "Slapshot", and the greatest thing in the movie is the Hanson Brothers. So, it was amusing to read this story today in the NYT
The son of one of the famed Hanson brothers from the movie “Slap Shot” scored his first N.H.L. goal on Tuesday night, and Martin Gerber had 47 saves as the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the suddenly inconsistent Devils, 4-1, at Prudential Center.

Christian Hanson, the son of Dave Hanson, a former hockey player who became an actor, capped a three-goal first period as the Maple Leafs prevented the Devils from wrapping up their eighth Atlantic Division title, and third in four years.

It didn't mention if he was involved in any fisticuffs, or knocked the toupee off the organist with an errant slap shot. I wonder if he plays with Hotwheels.
