The Smithers boy comes home! Hamhuis fans in Smithers have been wishing for this day for a long time. There was talk about Hamhuis being reluctant to play in a freaky media organization, but he has obviously looked past that. A 6 year deal worth $4.5 million per season. TSN was saying he was offered more elsewhere but chose Vancouver. Now, that may seem like a big chunk of change, as he only scored 5 goals and 24 points in 78 games last season. But he can log over 22:00 per game. I think he is going to be given a bigger offensive role in Vancouver and his output will increase.
Has only missed 9 games in 6 NHL seasons.
His fave all-time player? Scott Stevens.
He was very active in the Nashville community. Soft-spoken, but can be a beast on the ice. Loves the hip check.
Around here his last name is pronounced Ham-hyoos
