A week ago, we shared with you Jannik Hansen’s unique response to spotting Gene Simmons at the glass during a warmup skate, when the Danish winger went full honey badger, ignoring all manner of decorum and asking the KISS frontman to sign his stick then and there. It was in keeping with what we’ve come to learn about Hansen over this season and last: that dude don’t care. If he sees something he wants, be it a puck or an autograph or a plate of delicious cheeseburgers (speculation), he’s simply going to take it.
That in mind, can you imagine Hansen’s reaction if he had known local legend Pamela Anderson was at Tuesday night’s game? He wouldn’t have just approached her for an autograph; he’d have leaped into the stands mid-shift, thrown her over his shoulder and climbed into the rafters. Unfortunately for Hansen, he didn’t learn about Anderson’s visit — not only to the game but to the Canucks dressing room — until it was too late.
But his reaction was still money. Here it is, courtesy our pals at the Team 1040:
I love that Hansen doesn’t even bother trying to act like his brain isn’t exploding at the thought of being in the same room that Anderson was just in. Clearly, they got Baywatch in Denmark.
Okay, I’m resisting the urge to make a million Jannik Hansen stick-lifting jokes. Instead, here’s the best animated gif from Canucks superskills.
Never change, Jannik Hansen.
