CBJ sign Dansk to 3 yr ELC
The Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday signed goaltender Oscar Dansk to a three-year entry-level contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Dansk, 20, was a second-round pick (No. 31) by the Blue Jackets in the 2012 NHL Draft.
Dansk, a native of Tumba, Sweden, has spent the past two seasons with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League, compiling a 40-32-7 record with a 3.25 goals-against average, .897 save percentage and six shutouts in 85 appearances.
He was the co-winner, alongside fellow Otter Devin Williams, of the Dave Pinkney Trophy for Top Team Goaltending in 2013-14 after Erie allowed a league-low 170 goals in 68 games en route to posting franchise records for wins (52) and points (106) in a season.
Dansk earned Top Goaltender honors at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship after posting five wins, a 1.79 GAA and .928 save percentage in helping Sweden win a silver medal. He also won silver with Sweden at the 2012 IIHF World U18 Championships, recording a 1.98 GAA and .937 save percentage in five appearances.
