While most of the Blue Jackets’ prospects are playing at the professional level, Columbus currently has six players in the CHL. Of those six players, four were drafted in the 2012 draft and the other two in 2011. Leading the pack is former second overall pick Ryan Murray, who recently underwent surgery on his left shoulder and will be missing the remainder of the season. Oscar Dansk is the player to look out for because, much like fellow prospect Lukas Sedlak, the European netminder has come to North America to refine his skills before taking a shot at the professional level.

With a struggling starter and no obvious replacements in the system, the Columbus Blue Jackets looked to bolster their goaltending depth at the 2012 NHL Draft with the selection of two well regarded prospects at this position. One of those picks, Oscar Dansk, was considered by some scouts to be the top goaltender available in the draft.
