The Ogden Mustangs have signed Hunter Hansen for the 2017-18 season.
Hansen is yet another to join the Mustangs from the TPH Thunder program out of Nashville. He joins Ian Currie and Kerry Kruzel as new additions this season, along with Ryan Mascali who came to the Mustangs from the Thunder last offseason and will be back in Ogden again for 2017-18.
“I’m very excited for this upcoming season and very excited to be playing for the Ogden Mustangs,” Hansen said. “I can’t wait. I’ve been training all summer and skating quite a bit, just trying to prepare myself for the long season ahead.”
Hansen’s done his homework, and along with being excited about the hockey, he knows what else Ogden can offer.
“I hear Ogden is a beautiful place,” Hansen said. “I’ve never been to Utah, but I’m an avid outdoorsman and love to fish. I hear there’s a lot of great fishing there, so I’m super excited to be able to do a bit of that in my spare time.”
Born in 1999, Hansen still has three seasons of junior hockey eligibility remaining. At 5-feet-10-inches and 160 pounds, he’s a hard-working, two-way forward who’s aggressive and plays hard in the corners. He officially calls Vacaville, Calif., home.
