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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
