DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings today signed right wing Cross Hanas to a three-year entry-level contract.

Hanas, 20, has skated in 53 games for the Western Hockey League's Portland Winterhawks this season and ranks among the team leaders with 22 goals (4th), 48 assists (1st), 70 points (1st), six power-play goals (4th), a plus-24 rating (5th), 65 penalty minutes (2nd) and 179 shots on goal (5th). The 6-foot-1, 174-pound forward has appeared in 186 career games in four seasons with the Winterhawks, totaling 145 points (54-91-145), 167 penalty minutes and a plus-49 rating. While the 2020-21 WHL campaign was on hold, Hanas also skated in 27 games with the Lincoln Stars in the United States Hockey League, logging 16 points (3-13-16) and 99 penalty minutes.

Originally drafted in the second round (55th overall) of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft by the Red Wings, Hanas developed in the Dallas Stars youth hockey organization prior to making the jump to major junior hockey, scoring at a point-per-game pace with 36 points (17-19-36) in 36 games in his final season with the program in 2017-18. The Highland Village, Texas, native made his debut with the U.S. national team by skating in four games during the 2019 Hlinka Gretzky Cup, where he tied for second in team scoring with three points (1-2-3) in four games.
