Oscar Dansk honors Las Vegas shooting victims with new mask
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.
