PERSONAL: “Hanner” lists these favorites: Pork chops (food); Surf and hang out with his buddies (offseason activity); Football (sport besides hockey); Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight and Man of Steel (movies); The Wire (TV show); Pearl Jam (band); Hawaii (vacation spot); Mama’s Fishhouse in Maui (restaurant); Doug Lidster (hockey idol); Getting drafted and winning the World Cup (hockey moments); Chicago (road city); Chicago Blackhawks (non-Sharks jersey).  Has the hidden talent of being an excellent juggler. His first job was working construction with his step-dad at 15. Would be arguing with somebody (“Probably be a lawyer”) if he wasn’t playing hockey professionally. If he could hang out with one person in history it would be Nelson Mandela (“His book was phenomenal”). If faced with the situation of fighting one horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses, he would want to fight 100 ducksized horses. Biggest influence on his hockey career was his family. Names Sidney Crosby the most exciting player to watch in the NHL. In his hometown of Surrey, BC, Scott Hannan enjoys hanging out with his family.
