He was drafted second overall in the 2019 European CFL Draft by the Blue Bombers and was added to the roster on May 15, 2019.[1][2] He played for the Flensburg Sealords in the Oberliga before joining the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes in 2012.[3] He played for the Hurricanes for seven years and was the club's all-time leading tackler.[3] He then joined the Potsdam Royals in 2019 before getting the invitation to try out for the CFL just before the start of the 2019 GFL season.[3] Hansen had spectacular start to his CFL career, going to the 107th Grey Cup with the Blue Bombers. In the Grey Cup he had a thunderous hit on special teams taking out both a blocker and the returner, a hit for which he received national acclaim.[4] Hansen and the Bombers would go on to win the game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats ending a championship drought of 28 years for Winnipeg.
