2013-14 Season Stats: 6 GP, 1 G, 0 A, plus-2

Analysis: The 14-year veteran is one of the bigger bodies on the back-end for the Sharks, standing at 6’1″ and weighing in at more than 220 pounds. When San Jose needs a forward leaned on or pushed around a bit, they send out this hulk of a man to do the work. He isn’t there to score goals or produce points, so the early tally against the St. Louis Blues was fun.

He’s finished as a minus player twice though, which is mildly concerning for a guy who’s supposed to be a defensive-defender. Hannan is averaging nearly 18 minutes of time, typically against the opposition’s top forwards, so we can allow the mediocre showing on the plus-minus side of things.

Grade: B+
