Before coming to North America, Rask played for Ilves in the then Finnish SM-liiga. On 23 March 2012, Rask opted to sign a two-year entry level contract with the Nashville Predators. In the following season, Rask remained in Finland as he was loaned to Jokerit by the Predators. Upon completion of the Finnish season Rask then moved to North America to end the 2012–13 season, appearing in 2 games with the Predators, contributing with an assist.
In the last year of his contract with the Predators, Rask was assigned to American Hockey League affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals for the duration of the 2013–14 season. In a disappointing transition to North American hockey, he produced just 14 points in 58 games with the Admirals.
