It’s that time of year. With training camp right around the corner, goaltenders across the NHL are unveiling their new masks for the 2018-19 season. Wednesday morning, Golden Knights goaltender Oscar Dansk’s new mask was revealed, and a lot more went into it than just glitz and glamour.
Today we have the honor to present Oscar Dansk’s new Vegas Golden Knights mask⚔️. Oscar had a beautiful idea for his new mask, he wanted the mask to be painted as a tribute to all the victims at last years attack in Las Vegas❤️. A Vegas Golden Knight helmet is created on the mask for each and every of the 58 victims . All helmets are placed on the top of the mask, closest to heaven. All the Vegas helmets are created as a part of the design, and the main design is created in a classic way built on the awesome Vegas logos⚔️. And of course the Vegas Strong logo is also a part of the design. Just as usual I really love to work with the details. Thanks Oscar, it was a true honor to create this painting for you. ❤️ @oscardansk @vegasgoldenknights @nhl @daveart #nhl
Very classy move from the 24-year-old.
Prior to suffering a lower body injury early in the 2017-18 season, Dansk went 3-0 in four appearances with Vegas while logging an impressive 1.78 goals against average and .946 save percentage in place of fellow Vegas goaltenders Marc-Andre Fleury and Malcolm Subban.
The Golden Knights signed Dansk to a two-year deal in July. The Swedish netminder is expected to begin the season in the AHL, where he posted a 13-3-4 record with the Chicago Wolves last season.
