The 24-year-old returned to North America last season after spending two seasons in the SHL, joining Vegas as a minor league netminder. However, as both Marc-Andre Fleury and Malcolm Subban went down with injuries, Dansk was thrust into the starting role. He fared quite well in that situation, posting a 1.78 GAA and a .946 SV% before suffering a lower-body injury that cost him nearly half the season.
Upon getting the green light to return late in January, he went back to AHL Chicago where he put up solid numbers as well with a GAA of 2.44 and a save percentage of .918. However, short of a brief stint as an emergency recall, he didn’t spend any more time with the Golden Knights.
Next season, it’s likely that Dansk will battle for playing time at the AHL level with Maxime Lagace and recently-signed netminder Zach Fucale. Youngster Dylan Ferguson can also turn pro but Vegas could opt to keep him in junior hockey instead where he’d be guaranteed more playing time.
