Kenneth Scott Hannan (born January 23, 1979) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League. Hannan was born in Richmond, British Columbia, but grew up in Surrey, British Columbia.
Hannan was selected in the first round of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, 23rd overall, by the San Jose Sharks from the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL. Hannan made his professional debut at the start of the 1998–99 season with the Sharks, playing in five games before returning to the Rockets for his last year of juniors. Hannan then split the 1999–2000 season, his first full professional season, with the Sharks and AHL affiliate Kentucky Thoroughblades.
Hannan became a mainstay on the Sharks blueline from the 2000–01 season and evolved as an effective, gritty shut down defensman, earning selection as an NHL All-Star for the Western Conference in the 2003–2004 Season. Hannan emerged as a premier defenceman during the 2003–04 playoffs gaining praise for his performance in shutting down star center Peter Forsberg in the conference semi-final win against Colorado. Hannan played his 500th NHL game at the end of the 2006–07 season in a 4-3 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on March 18, 2007.
On April 3, 2013, Hannan returned to the Sharks via a trade in exchange for a conditional 7th round pick in the 2013 Draft. Hannan became an unrestricted free agent after the season's end, and on July 5, 2013, Hannan resigned with the Sharks on a one-year deal.
Scott and wife Kristina have one son, Gage Douglas, born January 28, 2010.
