Bobby Hanson (b. February 26, 1977) is a former college and professional ice hockey player who played the role of Dave Silk in the 2004 Disney movie Miracle, which was based on the true story of when, in 1980, the United States Ice Hockey team's coach, Herb Brooks, brought a U.S. hockey team up against the legendary juggernaut from the Soviet Union at the 1980 Olympic Games. The movie starred Kurt Russell (Herb Brooks), Patricia Clarkson (Patty Brooks), Noah Emmerich (Craig Patrick), and Sean McCann (Walter Bush). Bobby Hanson played his college hockey at Boston University (NCAA Division I) and professionally in Germany and the United States. His hockey playing career was cut short due to knee surgeries. He also served as a scout for the United States National Development Hockey Program in Ann Arbor, Michigan between 2002-2004.
