SAVANNAH, Ga. – The Savannah Ghost Pirates, ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vegas Golden Knights and the American Hockey League’s Henderson Silver Knights, announced that the team has agreed to terms with goaltender Darion Hanson for the 2022-2023 season.  Hanson becomes the first official signing in Ghost Pirates team history.  

Hanson joins the Ghost Pirates after posting a 20-15-0 record, with one shutout, a 2.24 goals-against average and a .957 save percentage in his senior season at the University of Connecticut last season while earning a spot on the Hockey East Honorable Mention All-Star Team. In addition, Hanson was impressive in his professional and ECHL debut last spring with the Reading Royals stopping 22 of 23 shots in a 4-1 win over Maine on April 8. The 25-year-old played his first three collegiate seasons at Union College for Ghost Pirates Head coach Rick Bennett, earning 50 wins and seven shutouts from 2017-20.
