The Hanson Brothers are the only cool thing in the 1977 cult hockey movie Slap Shot.
They are so fn’ cool!!
The Hanson Brothers provide several humorous moments in the film and are best remembered for:
- starting fights
- interrupting the coach in the locker room during pre-game speeches with overzealous shouting
- wearing extremely thick glasses
- playing with toy cars and trucks in their hotel room, although the brothers range in age from 18 to 20
In the film, The Hansons are brought in by the front office as part of an inexpensive deal, also as enforcers for the fledgling Charlestown Chiefs during their 1976 (and final) season in the Federal League. They are in order of their numbers:
- Jack Hanson (portrayed by David Hanson) – #16 Left Wing, age 19
- Steve Hanson (portrayed by Steve Carlson) – #17 Center, age 20
- Jeff Hanson (portrayed by Jeff Carlson) – #18 Right Wing, age 18
