Blue Jackets and Swedish goaltender Oscar Dansk agree on a 3-year, entry-level contract

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed goaltender Oscar Dansk, the 31st pick in the 2012 NHL draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract.

A native of Tumba, Sweden, Dansk has spent the past two seasons with Erie 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.

Dansk was chosen as the top goaltender at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championships after posting five wins, a 1.79 GAA and .928 save percentage in helping Sweden win a silver medal.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
