|Assets:||Is a big goalie with a very projectable frame and a lot of confidence in his puck-stopping ability. His athleticism, especially for his size, is also quite impressive.|
|Flaws:||Needs to develop more consistency in his game, which should come with greater professional experience. Still needs to work on positioning for best results.|
|Career Potential:||Talented goaltender with big upside.|

Jackets sign draft pick Oscar Dansk | 05/08/2014 3:57 PM
NewsColumbus has reached a three-year, entry-level contract with Oscar Dansk.
ImpactIn 42 games this past season with the OHL's Erie Otters, he posted a 29-9-1 record to go with a 2.39 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage. Dansk was chosen in the second round (31st overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Blue Jackets.
Dansk, Forsberg get SWE into gold-medal game | 01/04/2014 3:37 PM
NewsOscar Dansk made 26 saves in a 2-1 win over Russia to get Sweden into the gold-medal game of the World Junior Championship.

Oscar Dansk returned to the OHL | 09/19/2013 7:09 AM
NewsThe Columbus Blue Jackets have sent goaltender Oscar Dansk back to the Erie Otters of the OHL.
ImpactIt's no surprise as Dansk needs plenty of playing time. He was selected with the first pick of the second round in the 2012 Draft and the Blue Jackets are looking at him as their goalie of the future. He struggled last season with a 4.11 GAA and a .888 save percentage but it was his first year in North America after coming over from Sweden so he gets a mulligan.
Oscar Dansk improves on Sunday with win | 09/09/2013 6:46 AM
NewsOscar Dansk kicked out 21 of 23 shots as the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the New York Rangers at the NHL Prospects Tournament Sunday.
ImpactDansk was very spotty in the first two games of the tournament as he managed to give up eight goals on only 40 shots. The Swedish netminder played with the Erie Otters of the AHL last season but struggled with a 4.11 GAA and a .888 save percentage. He was drafted with the first pick of the second round in 2012 and many scouts thought he was the best goalie available despite being the third netminder taken, behind Andrei Vasilevski (Tampa Bay) and Malcolm Subban (Boston). But he was much better in leading the Blue Jackets to the win on Sunday. He is still highly regarded but with Sergei Bobrovsky ahead of him in Columbus, it may be a few years until Dansk is in a Columbus uniform during a regular season game.
Oscar Dansk uses struggles as motivation | 09/06/2013 9:40 AM
NewsOscar Dansk hopes his rough 2012-13 campaign with the OHL Erie Otters will help him going forward.
ImpactDansk had a 4.11 GAA and .888 save percentage in 43 games after being taken with the 31st overall pick by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2012. "It was motivation, for sure, all of that," Dansk said of last season's struggles. "I really got into working out quickly after the season ended. I had a lot of thinking time, too. I have a positive outlook this season. I think we're going to be a better team. We have an older group, a group that's been together."
