Oscar Dansk

Aaron Vickers

He is a big, modern type goalie with a sense of calmness to his game. He plays with confidence and uses his natural frame to cover the lower portion of the net well. He gets down early and plays a covering style — a really effective one. He has lateral mobility as well as good anticipation, which helps him keep his calm, even when the play is uncontrolled. Dansk has got great size to cover the net naturally and is very confident and mature in goal. He has some strong balance and the fluid economical ability to slide post-to-post and drop into a butterfly, all in one smooth motion. He has strong determination as seen by his willingness to come to North America in his formative years and better his game with the storied Shattuck St. Mary’s prep school. He has good focus and tracks the puck well through traffic. He keeps his upper half up and does not slouch, taking away openings in the upper portion of the net. When he does have to scramble, which is rare, he shows an ability to quickly recover and get back into position. (May 2012)
