Dansk signed a one-year, $700,000 contract extension with the Golden Knights on Thursday. Dansk has only appeared in one game with the big club this campaign, and it was a disaster with him surrendering six goals on 37 shots en route to a blowout loss to the Flyers on Oct. 21. The 2012 second-round pick has, however, been decent in the minors, compiling an 18-12-4 record while posting a 2.57 GAA and .908 save percentage in 35 appearances with AHL Chicago. The 26-year-old Swede will likely once again spend most, if not all, of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors.
Dansk was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Friday. Dansk served a backup role behind Malcolm Subban for Friday's game against the Hurricanes. Marc-Andre Fleury's one-game suspension for skipping the All-Star Game is complete, so Dansk will return to his role as AHL Chicago's starter.
The Golden Knights recalled Dansk from AHL Chicago on Thursday. Marc-Andre Fleury will serve a one-game suspension Friday for skipping the All-Star Game, so Dansk will be on hand to serve as Vegas' second netminder against the Hurricanes. The 25-year-old backstop will almost certainly be sent back to the bus league ahead of Saturday's matchup with Nashville.
The Golden Knights assigned Dansk to AHL Chicago on Wednesday. The Golden Knights were playing back-to-back games so they cast Dansk to start Monday against the Flyers. Dansk had a tough outing, though, allowing six goals on 37 shots en route to the team's fourth loss of the year. The 25-year-old will return to the minors to continue his development, and Garret Sparks, who played 20 games with the Maple Leafs last year, will serve as Marc-Andre Fleury's backup for as long Malcolm Subban (lower body) is sidelined.
Dansk allowed six goals on 37 shots in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Flyers. It was a night to forget for every player on the Golden Knights roster, especially Dansk. Making his season debut, the 25-year-old was beaten half a dozen times in this game, as Dansk was in goal to give Marc-Andre Fleury a night off. While not entirely his fault, Dansk certainly didn't do himself any favors with his performance, and it could be a while before we see him between the pipes again.
