Christian Hanson has a goal and an assist in the Providence Bruins' 3-2 shootout loss to the Worcester Sharks.

Christian Hanson has been placed on waivers by the Boston Bruins.

Hanson had no points in six games with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2011-12. Even assuming there's no lockout, Hanson isn't likely to get much, if any, playing time with the Boston Bruins in 2012-13.

Christian Hanson feels it is a "do or die time" to jump start his NHL career in 2012-13 with his new team, the Boston Bruins.

He signed with Toronto out of college and played 42 games with the Maple Leafs over three years, while also spending time in the minors. In 2011-12, he skated in 52 games with Washington's AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears. He then signed a two-way deal with the Bruins last month because the team offered him the best chance to crack their roster at training camp. However, we think it will be tough for him to land a spot given how deep Boston is.
