Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Noah Hanifin
Noah Hanifin was born on January 25, 1997, in Norwood, Massachusetts. Hanifin is a product of Saint Sebastian's School, where he played on their varsity team as an eighth-grader, and starred for three seasons. After graduating from high school early, Hanifin then attended Boston College. At just 17-years-old he became the second youngest player in the team's history

Hanifin continued to show signs of stardom at Boston College. He recorded 23 points in 37 in his lone collegiate season and drew the interest from NHL scouts. Going into the 2015 NHL draft, he was the top-rated defender and was subsequently selected fifth overall by the Carolina Hurricanes.

Hanifin would make the leap directly to the NHL to start the 2015-16 season. In 79 games for the Hurricanes he tallied four goals and 18 assists while acclimatising himself to life as an NHL defenceman.

In 2016-17, Hanifin appeared in 81 games for the Hurricanes, scoring four times and adding 25 assists. His goal total would reach double digits for the first in 2017-18. He finished the season with 10 goals to go along with 22 assists.

On June 23, 2018, after three seasons with the club, Hanifin's time in Carolina would come to an end. He was traded along with Elias Lindholm to the Calgary Flames in exchange for Dougie Hamilton and Micheal Ferland.

On the international stage Hanifin helped the United States to gold at the 2014 World U17 Hockey Challenge and 2014 IIHF World U18 Championship. He also represented his homeland at the 2015 World Junior Championship and at the 2016 World Championship at the age of just 19.
