Chris Hahn


Chris Hahn has excelled in the classroom at the University of Maine. He has a 3.78 grade point average in Business Administration, with a concentration in Finance. He has posted three consecutive semesters with a perfect 4.0 grade point average. In 2008, Hahn was selected one of three Hockey East Top Scholar-Athlete’s. In addition, he was named to the Hockey East Academic All-Star Team, honoring six student-athletes with top GPAs by position. Hahn is a three-time member of the Hockey East All-Academic Team. He has earned the Dale Lick Academic Achievement Award in each of the past two seasons, for having the top grade point average on the Maine hockey team. Hahn has also been named a Maine Scholar-Athlete Award winner and been named to the Dean’s List. He is a two-time Team Maine selection, which honors the top scholar-athlete in each sport at the University of Maine. Led by Hahn, Maine posted a team grade point average of 3.11 last year, the highest in team history.


Chris Hahn is a person of exceptional character. As one of four seniors on the Maine team this year, Hahn is an outstanding leader. He leads both on and off the ice for the Black Bears. Hahn had a very frustrating junior season, which left him more determined to make the most of his senior campaign. During the 2007-08 season, Hahn broke his hand in a game on Nov. 25. Having recovered from the hand injury and ready to play his first game back, Hahn was hit in the jaw with the puck during a pre-game skate the day he was scheduled to return to the lineup and was sidelined again. Hahn missed 12 games over the span of two months with the two injuries. The Black Bears went 4-7-1 in that time without Hahn. Determined to get back, Hahn returned to the lineup on Feb. 8 and the Black Bears were 5-5-0 in their final 10 games. Hahn had points in four of the final six games for the Black Bears, in which Maine went 5-1-0. It is the same character and determination that Hahn used to return to the lineup last year, that he uses every day in practice and in the locker room to lead a young Maine team that has 19 freshmen and sophomores on its roster.


As part of the Maine hockey team, Hahn takes an active role in the local Orono community. Hahn and the Black Bears complete numerous community service projects each year. This past September, Hahn was the University of Maine men’s ice hockey team’s top finisher in the Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure. He also participates in a pair of “Skate with the Bears” each year, where local children from the community come in and skate with the Maine team. Hahn has also volunteered with Maine Minor Hockey the past four years, where he teaches hockey skills to youth ages 5-14.


Hahn is one of Maine’s top forwards. He is currently second on the team in scoring with a team-best six goals and eleven assist for 17 points on the season. He currently has goals in three straight games for Maine. He scored three goals in Maine’s weekend sweep of Niagara. He scored one of two Maine goals in victory over second-ranked Boston College. Hahn has been named to the Hockey East Weekly Top Performers list each of the past two weeks. He has one game-winning goal and three power play goals. His three power play goals rank tied for third in Hockey East and tied for 10th in the nation.
