The previous season, Danis won the Aldege “Baz” Bastien Trophy as the AHL’s best goaltender with a 26-14-2 record, a 2.07 GAA and a .924 save percentage during the regular season. He was named a First Team AHL All-Star and represented the Barons at the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic.
Danis has a career record of 140-99-26 with 14 shutouts in 276 AHL appearances. He was the co-MVP of the 2006 AHL All-Star Game, and was a member of Hamilton's Calder Cup championship team in 2007.
