Bischoff, Lagace head to Vegas

The Chicago Wolves announced Wednesday that defenseman Jake Bischoff and goaltender Max Lagace have been recalled from loan by the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights while goaltender Oscar Dansk has been returned on loan to the Wolves.

Bischoff, 24, spent most of the first three weeks of this season with Vegas, but did not make his NHL debut. Since joining the Wolves full-time on Oct. 25, the Grand Rapids, Minnesota, native has appeared in 39 games and contributed two goals and nine assists. He scored his most recent goal Saturday at Cleveland. For his AHL career, Bischoff owns 11 goals, 26 assists, 52 penalty minutes and a +21 plus/minus rating in 114 games.

The 26-year-old Lagace appeared in one game during his week-long stint with the Wolves — a 4-3 overtime loss Saturday at Cleveland during which he made a season-high 39 saves. Lagace has posted a 9-6-3 record with a 2.79 goals-against average and an .899 save percentage in 18 appearances for the Wolves this season. He already has spent two weeks on Vegas’ active roster this month, but has yet to appear in a game.

Dansk, 24, joined Vegas’ roster on Jan. 23, but the Golden Knights did not play a game during the Stockholm native’s time with the club. In 23 games for the Wolves during 2018-19, Dansk has compiled a 14-6-3 record with a 2.80 goals-against average and an .898 save percentage.

The Wolves play their first game after the AHL All-Star Break at 7 p.m. Friday at Rockford, which will be televised on The U Too. Chicago’s next game at Allstate Arena is 7 p.m. Saturday against the Manitoba Moose for Brandon Pirri Bobblehead Night, presented by CW50.
