Dansk was placed on waivers by the Golden Knights on Monday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
It's no secret that the Golden Knights will deploy Robin Lehner and Marc-Andre Fleury as the team's top two netminders this season. However, Dansk demonstrated in the team's inaugural season that he can be relied upon in a pinch, as evidenced by his robust .946 save percentage and a shutout through four games. The Swedish backstop was blitzed for six goals allowed in his lone NHL appearance last season, but Vegas still rewarded him with a one-year, $700,000 extension last June.
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.
Dansk will start in Monday's road game against the Flyers, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
It has been nearly two years since Dansk's last NHL start, but the Golden Knights need to rest Marc-Andre Fleury, who has played in all nine games and started eight of those contests this year, with Malcolm Subban (lower body) still out. Dansk was solid with AHL Chicago last year, posting a .913 save percentage and 27-13-2 record, and a matchup against the 2-3-1 Flyers is a good time to get him action with the big club.
Dansk was recalled by the Golden Knights on Saturday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
Since Malcolm Subban (lower body) will be out for a few games, Dansk was brought up to serve as Marc-Andre Fleury's backup. However, there's a chance he gets a start right away with back-to-back games Saturday and Sunday.
Dansk will make a road start versus the Kings on Thursday, Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
The Golden Knights sent Dansk between the pipes for just four games last season, but the Swede skated off with three wins to complement a robust 1.78 GAA and .946 save percentage. He's a quality insurance option behind NHL regulars Marc-Andre Fleury and Malcolm Subban, but newcomer Garret Sparks and 20-year-old prospect Dylan Ferguson figure to give him a run for his money in the preseason.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
