Calgary Flames Sign Goalie To Contract Extension

The Calgary Flames have decided to bring back goaltender Oscar Dansk.

Recently signing a one-year, two-way contract, Dansk's commitment comes after an impressive season with the Flames' AHL affiliate, the Calgary Wranglers.

In 17 games played during the 2022-23 season, Dansk showcased his skills with an 8-6-2 record, a 2.75 goals-against average, and a .905 save percentage.

Dansk's hockey career began when he was drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the second round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. He later gained valuable experience with the Vegas Golden Knights from 2017 to 2021, appearing in six NHL games and achieving a notable 4-1-0 record.

Now, his decision to extend his stay with the Flames organization is a positive sign for their future goaltending prospects.

Aside from his on-ice achievements, Dansk has also made an impact off the ice. His contributions to the Calgary community were recognized when he received the prestigious IO/American Specialty Man of the Year Award from the Wranglers, further cementing his standing as a valuable asset to the organization.

With Dansk's signing, the Flames can count on his proven abilities as a reliable backup goaltender.

While the team has other goaltending options in Dustin Wolf, Jacob Markstrom, and Daniel Vladar, Dansk's presence adds depth and flexibility to their lineup.

As the upcoming season approaches, Flames fans eagerly anticipate Dansk's return and the contributions he will make both on and off the ice. Photo Credit: Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports
