Henderson Silver Knights

WATCH: Oscar Dansk makes save-of-the-year candidate



Oscar Dansk might have made the save of the hockey world on Sunday.

The Henderson Silver Knights goalie made a cartwheel-like save off his back, extending his left leg straight in the air and keeping the puck out.

That miraculous save was one of a career-high 48 Dansk made on Sunday for a 3-2 Silver Knights victory against the San Diego Gulls on Sunday.

Henderson improved to 11-2-0 and remain on top of the American Hockey League standings.

“He was outstanding,” said coach Manny Viveiros. “In that first period alone, he kept us in the game.”

There’s something about the Vegas Golden Knights organization and making incredible saves that just seems normal. Marc-Andre Fleury made, arguably, the save of the NHL realm against the Anaheim Ducks on Feb. 11, diving to his left and pushing the puck away from the goal line with his glove.

Fleury has a knack for making these saves, i.e. Toronto last season. I’d bet he doesn’t mind letting Dansk hold the honor for at least one season.
