Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Funneled back to Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk was moved back to AHL Chicago on Wednesday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Dansk got a breather during the All-Star break, but he'll retake his spot in the minors Wednesday, with Max Lagace replacing him on the NHL roster. The Golden Knights aren't short on capable replacements in net, but Dansk is likely fourth in line overall on the organizational depth chart. As such, it would likely take multiple injuries for him to see consistent time with Vegas.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Called up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk was promoted from AHL Chicago on Thursday.

The fact that Dansk will sit on the roster during the All-Star break instead of Max Lagace -- who will play for the Wolves in the minors -- is a good indication of how the organization ranks the two netminders. Even if Malcolm Subban (illness) remains unavailable versus Carolina on Feb. 1, look for Dansk to be shipped down to the minors prior to that clash, rather than serving as the backup.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Exposed to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk was placed on waivers by Vegas on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Dansk was terrific for the Golden Knights in their inaugural campaign, as he went 3-0-0 with a 1.78 GAA and .946 save percentage over four games. It had taken a litany of injuries to the Golden Knights netminders -- including Marc-Andre Fleury -- for the Swede to see action at hockey's highest level in the first place. Still, if Dansk clears waivers, he'll likely report to AHL Chicago, which is the top development affiliate for Vegas.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Concedes twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk stopped 17 of 19 shots Thursday, earning the win in a 7-2 rout of the Kings.

Dansk was serviceable but not outstanding in this one; however, it's also easy to lose focus when you're on the positive end of a 7-2 blowout. But this perhaps wasn't the kind of night he was hoping for in his efforts to start the year as Marc-Andre Fleury's backup.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: In goal Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk will start between the pipes in Thursday's road exhibition game against the Kings, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Dansk was fantastic in limited action last season, posting a 3-0-0 record while registering an impressive 1.78 GAA and .946 save percentage in four appearances. However, despite that eye-popping performance, Dansk may begin the 2018-19 campaign in the minors, as Malcolm Subban is expected to get the first crack at backup duties behind Marc-Andre Fleury.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Inks two-year deal with Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk signed a two-year, $1.35 million contract with the Golden Knights on Friday.

The 24-year-old, who made his debut with Vegas last season after being selected by the Blue Jackets 31st overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, posted a 3-0-0 record -- including a shutout -- in the club's inaugural season. Dansk also fashioned a 1.78 GAA and .946 save percentage in that limited action.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Friday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

Dansk was only with the big club for one game, when he backed up Malcolm Subban against San Jose on Thursday. His demotion likely means that starter Marc-Andre Fleury (undisclosed) is nearing a return after reports indicated Flower will join the team Saturday against the Avalanche.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Promoted to NHL roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk was recalled from AHL Chicago on an emergency basis Wednesday.

Dansk will join the Golden Knights on the heels of news that primary netminder Marc-Andre Fleury -- who exited Tuesday's game against Vancouver with an undisclosed injury -- will not depart with the team as it leaves on a two-game road trip. There's no word yet on the extent of Fleury's injury, but Dansk will likely remain with the club as a backup option to Malcolm Subban in the meantime. Subban will guard the goal Thursday, but Dansk could start Saturday if he hangs with the team for the matchup against the Avalanche.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Wednesday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Dansk's demotion was expected after he was taken off injured reserve, considering he is firmly cemented behind Marc-Andre Fleury and Malcolm Subban on the organization's depth chart. Barring an injury, the youngster Dansk should remain with the Wolves for the rest of the 2017-18 campaign.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Cleared to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk (lower body) has been taken off injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Dansk will almost certainly be reassigned to AHL Chicago now that he is healthy, as he is firmly cemented in the third netminder role behind Marc-Andre Fleury and Malcolm Subban. In his four outings for the Golden Knights, the 23-year-old posted a perfect 3-0-0 record -- including registering the first NHL shutout of his career.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Ruled out of road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk (lower body) will remain sidelined for at least the next two games, Tuesday in Edmonton and Thursday in Vancouver.

The rookie netminder took the league by storm, winning each of his first three starts while allowing just three goals, but suffered a lower-body injury in his fourth appearance that will now keep him out for at least eight contests. With Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) set to miss the next two games as well, and Malcolm Subban (lower body) appearing the closest of the team's injured goalies to a return, it will be interesting to see which role each player ends up filling once the dust settles on the Golden Knights' injury crisis.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Designated for IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Dansk becomes the third Vegas netminder on injured reserve along with Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) and Malcolm Subban (lower body). With just two remaining goalies under contract, the Golden Knights were forced to make an emergency recall of Dylan Ferguson from his junior team. Prior to getting hurt, Dansk was off to a phenomenal start, winning each of his three appearances in goal -- including a 32-save shutout over Colorado. By placing the Swede on injured reserve, he will miss at least a week, with Nov. 6 against Toronto the earliest he could return to action.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Leaves Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk (undisclosed) left Monday's game against the Islanders during the second period and is not expected to return, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

This was Dansk's fourth game appearing as the starter, as Vegas continues to deal with goaltending injuries. The 23-year-old slipped and came down awkwardly while trying to make a save on John Tavares, and looked to be noticeably uncomfortable after the play. Dansk is unlikely to return and should be considered day-to-day, and more information should be released by the team before Tuesday's matchup against the Rangers.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Patrolling blue paint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk led the team onto the ice and will guard the cage on the road against the Islanders on Monday.

Dansk continues to get better and better to start the season, recording his first career shutout Friday against Colorado. The 23-year-old remains undefeated in his career -- albeit with just three outings under his belt -- with a 1.35 GAA and .959 save percentage. New York's offense (3.45 goals per game) is eighth best in the league, but Dansk is backed up by the third-ranked squad (3.78 tallies per outing).

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Earns first career shutout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk stopped all 32 shots in a 7-0 win over Colorado on Friday.

Dansk didn't need to be perfect with his team's explosion, but he was perfect anyway, earning his first career shutout in the process. Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) will remain the top option when he returns, but Dansk is showing he can be effective when thrust into the starter's role.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Tending twine Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk will patrol the blue paint at home against Colorado on Friday.

Dansk is undefeated in his NHL career -- all two appearances. While it is certainly impressive that the netminder has recorded wins in two straight outings, he is still a relatively untested player. If the 23-year-old does struggle, he has the benefit of playing behind an offense that is netting 3.38 goals per game -- third best in the league.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Shines in first career NHL start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk stopped 29 of 31 shots in his first NHL start Tuesday against Chicago.

This was quite an impressive showing from Dansk, who backstopped the Golden Knights to their fourth consecutive win and a 7-1-0 record overall. The 23-year-old has emerged as the starter for Las Vegas with Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) and Malcolm Subban (lower-body) injured, so he's worth a look while the team tries to continues this miraculous start to their franchise. Dansk hasn't put up very strong numbers with stints in various leagues, including the OHL, AHL and SHL, but he's looked good at the NHL level and is pretty much all the Golden Knights have to turn to at this moment.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Starting Tuesday against Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk will get his first NHL start in goal Tuesday against the Blackhawks.

Dansk was solid in relief of the injured Malcolm Subban in Saturday's game against the Blues, turning aside 10 of the 11 shots he faced en route to a 3-2 overtime win. However, there's reason to believe Dansk will struggle Tuesday, as he wasn't great while playing in the SHL last season, compiling a 6-16-0 record while posting a 3.00 GAA and .903 save percentage in 24 appearances with Rogle BK. The Blackhawks are also a tough matchup for any NHL netminder, let alone one making his first career start, as they're averaging 3.56 goals per game this season, seventh in the league.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Earns victory in NHL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk picked up a win appearing in relief during his NHL debut against the Blues on Saturday night.

Malcolm Subban left Saturday's game with an apparent lower-body injury, and with Vegas already missing starter Marc-Andre Fleury, the Golden Knights were down to their third-string goaltender. He did allow one goal on 11 shots, but he guided Vegas to an overtime victory. Should Subban have to miss significant time, the Golden Knights will have little choice but to turn to Dansk, though Max Lagace down in the minors is also an option.

Golden Knights' Oscar Dansk: Called up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dansk was recalled from AHL Chicago on Thursday.

The Swede was called up as an insurance option with Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) on injured reserve and a home game against the Blues to be played Saturday. Dansk posted a 6-16-0 record along with a 3.00 GAA and .903 save percentage with Rogle BK last season, not to mention a six goals allowed stinker of a performance with the AHL's Wolves already this season, so it'll be hard to trust Dansk from a fantasy perspective even if he does get a chance to make his NHL debut soon.
