Vegas Golden Knights

The Golden Knights have re-signed Deryk Engelland to a one-year contract.

Engelland had 12 points (2G / 10A) in 74 games in his second season with the Golden Knights. While his point totals aren’t impressive, Engelland led Vegas in blocked shots (152), was fourth in hits (165) and ranked first among defensemen in SH TOI/GP (3:12). Engelland brings a reliable defensive game to the Vegas top-4 and was a priority for them this offseason.

Engelland received a match penalty for his hit on Justin Abdelkader in Saturday's win and faces certain further punishment after being offered an in-person hearing by the NHL Department of Player Safety.

in-person hearings allow for suspensions beyond five games. Engelland is a repeat offender, having been suspended for three games in December of 2011 for another illegal check to the head. The Penguins will have to recall a defenseman to fill the void that will be left by Engelland's potential suspension.
