Mathias Bau Hansen (born 3 July 1993) is a Danish professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing for the Dornbirn Bulldogs in the Austrian Hockey League (EBEL).

Playing career[edit]

Bau Hansen made his Superisligaen debut playing with the Rødovre Mighty Bulls during the 2011–12 AL-Bank Ligaen season.[1]

After three successful seasons with the Frederikshavn White Hawks, Bau Hansen captured the attention of North America, agreeing to a one-year AHL contract with the Hershey Bears, affiliate to the Washington Capitals on June 20, 2017.[2] In his debut North American season with the Bears in 2017–18, Bau recorded 13 goals and 23 points in 58 games and notched five game-winning goals, tied for the most on the team.

On May 9, 2018, he was rewarded for a solid season by signing a one-year, two-way contract with the Washington Capitals.[3]

After suffering a serious injury while participating with Denmark during the 2018 World Championships, Bau Hansen was initially ruled out of the beginning of the 2018–19 season, placed on the Capitals injured non-roster list.[4] While taking a long recovery from broken ribs and a tear in his spleen, Bau Hansen was ruled out from the remainder of the season during February 2019 and returned to his native Denmark to continue his return to fitness.[5]

With his contract concluded with the Capitals, Bau Hansen was not tendered a qualifying offer and was released as a free agent. On July 16, 2019, Bau Hansen returned to Europe in agreeing to a one-year contract with Austrian club, Dornbirn Bulldogs of the EBEL.[6]
