The Golden Knights have signed Marcus Kallionkieli to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Kallionkieli was a fifth-round pick in this summer’s draft after scoring 29 goals and 24 assists (53 points) in 58 games with Sioux City (USHL).
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.
The Golden Knights have acquired Garret Sparks from the Maple Leafs for a 2020 fourth-round pick and David Clarkson.
Sparks is expected to go to Vegas to be their third string netminder after going 8-9-1 with a 3.15 GAA and .902 SV5 in 20 games with the Maple Leafs last season. It will likely take an injury to Marc-Andre Fleury and/or Malcolm Subban for Sparks to reach the NHL in 2020.
The Golden Knights have signed Jake Bischoff to a three-year contract.
Bischoff had two goals and 11 assists (13 points) in 60 games with Chicago (AHL) last season. The 24-year-old doesn’t bring a lot of offence to the table but is sound in his own end but remains a bit of a stretch to play for Vegas in the near future.
The Golden Knights signed Jaycob Megna to a one-year, two-way contract.
The Golden Knights signed Tyrell Goulbourne to a two-year contract worth $1.4M ($700K AAV).
The Golden Knights signed Brett Lernout to a one-year, two-way contract.
The Golden Knights have signed Malcolm Subban to a one-year extension worth $850K.
The Golden Knights have re-signed Brandon Pirri to a two-year contract worth $1.55M ($775K AAV).
The Golden Knights have re-signed Tomas Nosek to a one-year deal worth $1.0M.
The Golden Knights have signed Patrick Brown to a two-year, two-way contract.
The Golden Knights acquired Nicolas Roy and 2021 conditional fifth-round pick from the Hurricanes for Erik Haula.
Roy was selected in the fourth-round (No.96 overall) in the 2015 NHL draft. Since then, Roy has appeared in just seven career NHL games but is coming off of a 17-goal, 19-assist (36 points) season with Charlotte (AHL). Roy will likely start in Chicago (AHL) given the depth of the Golden Knights lineup.
The Golden Knights have signed William Karlsson to an eight-year contract extension worth $47.2 million ($5.9M AAV).
In his second season with the Golden Knights, Karlsson expectedly saw his shooting percentage drop from 23.4% to 14.2% which led to him scoring just 24 goals with 32 assists (56 points) in 82 games. Over the last two seasons, Karlsson ranks 17th in goals (67) and tied for 45th in points (134). His new cap-hit is the same last Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov, which is tied for 109th highest in the NHL—extremely reasonable for a player who is in the top-50 in scoring.
The Golden Knights signed Jonas Rondbjerg to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Rondbjerg, 20, was selected in the third-round (No.65 overall) in 2017 and had two goals and four assists (six points) in 45 games with Vaxjo HC of the Swedish Elite League.
Fleury allowed two goals on 29 shots in the Golden Knights double-overtime loss in Game 6. Fleury has had a solid series, posting a .912 SV% and one shutout through six games and brings a ton of Game 7 experience to the crease on Tuesday. Fleury is 3-3- with a 1.86 GAA and .923 SV% in six career Game 7 starts.

Fleury will start Game 6 vs. the Sharks.
Fleury will start Game 5 in San Jose.
Brown is expected to draw into the Hurricanes lineup in Game 4.
Brown will make his season debut in Game 4 of the first-round because Micheal Ferland is out with an upper-body injury. Brown spent the entire season with Charlotte (AHL), where he was tied for fourth on the team in goals (19) and 11th in points (35) through 70 games.
The Hurricanes have recalled Patrick Brown from Charlotte (AHL).

Fleury will start Game 4 vs. the Sharks.
Fleury allowed three goals on 28 shots in the Golden Knights 6-3 win over the Sharks in Game 3. Fleury has not been at his best, allowing at least three goals in all three games and posting a .897 SV%, but he has outplayed Martin Jones and that has been enough. He should be able to do the same in Game 4 and that should give Vegas a 3-1 series lead.
