Golden Knights sign goalie Oscar Dansk to one-year contract


The Vegas Golden Knights added another goalie to their system on Monday with the signing of free agent Oscar Dansk to a one-year contract.

The contract will pay him $650,000 according to the team.

Dansk was drafted in the second-round by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2012 but never played a game in the NHL for the team. He was a restricted free agent this summer but did not receive a qualifying offer from the team, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent.

The 23-year-old goalie spent the past two seasons playing in Sweden for Rogle BK.

His only professional experience in North America has been limited to just the 2014-15 season that he spent split between the ECHL and AHL.

He joins a Vegas organization that so far has Marc-Andre Fleury, Calvin Pickard and Maxime Legace under contract. Fleury is locked in as the starter so the best Dansk can hope for this season is to potentially unseat Pickard as his backup.
