Vegas Calls Upon Dansk
GLENVIEW, Ill. - The Chicago Wolves announced Wednesday that goaltender Oscar Dansk has been recalled from loan on an emergency basis by the Vegas Golden Knights.
The 24-year-old Swede spent the last 56 days on the Wolves roster and, in that time, compiled an 8-1-1 record as well as a .925 save percentage and 2.28 goals-against average.
In his 10 games with the Wolves, Dansk collected his first American Hockey League shutout on March 2 versus the San Antonio Rampage and his first North American point, an assist, on March 9 against the Milwaukee Admirals. Additionally, Dansk registered a seven-game win streak - Feb. 15 to March 9 - and a nine-game unbeaten streak - Oct. 7 to March 11.
Dansk spent time with Vegas earlier this season. The Stockholm native made his NHL debut on Oct. 21 against the St. Louis Blues when he replaced the injured Malcolm Subban in the third period. He gave up a goal on the first shot he faced, but went on to make 10 saves through regulation and overtime to help the Golden Knights secure the victory.
He appeared in three more games for Vegas, including his first NHL start on Oct. 24 against the Chicago Blackhawks. Through four games and three starts, Dansk compiled a 3-0-0 record with a 1.78 goals-against average and .946 save percentage. Then Dansk suffered an injury that sidelined the netminder from Oct. 30 until his return to the Wolves net on Feb. 15.
The Wolves will rely on the tandem of Kasimir Kasksiuo and Max Lagace in the season-series finale against the Cleveland Monsters on Thursday, March 22, at Quicken Loans Arena. Puck drop is set for 6 p.m. and the game will stream on AHLLive.com. For complete game and broadcast schedules, visit ChicagoWolves.com.
