    Last season with the Winterhawks, he scored 22 goals and 27 assists in 60 games with a +20 plus/minus rating.

    His scouting report:

    “He's such a gifted, creative puck-handler. He doesn't instinctually look pass, but finds the trailer, cross-slot opportunities, and players behind the net. Hanas keeps his feet moving off the puck and isn't shy about going to battle on offensive zone puck retrievals. He also uses a dangerous lane-altering spin-pass that should have success at higher levels.”
