Playing career[edit]

Beginning his career in Norway for Vålerenga Ishockey of the GET-ligaen, Ask moved to North America and had spells in the CHL with the Laredo Bucks in the 2002–2003 season and the ECHL with the Toledo Storm and the Las Vegas Wranglers. In 2005 he moved to Finland's SM-liiga and spent a season with SaiPa. In 2006 he moved to Sweden and signed with Djurgården where he played until 2007 before moving to EV Duisburg Die Füchse in Germany during the 2007–08 season. After the Insolvence of EV Duisburg Die Füchse signed on July 7, 2009 a contract with Nürnberg Ice Tigers.[1] He then signed try-out contracts with first HC Sparta Praha of the Czech Extraliga, and then with Lørenskog IK of the GET-ligaen, but he wasn't offered an extension with any of the two teams. After failing twice to take a regular spot in a team for the 2011–12 season, Ask signed a two-month contract with HV71 of the Swedish Elitserien (SEL) on November 2, 2011.[2]

On January 7, 2014, he was named to Team Norway's official 2014 Winter Olympics roster.[3] Later in 2014 Ask was featured on the Norwegian TV2's documentary "Iskrigerne", for his play in Vålerenga.
