LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Vegas Golden Knights signed forward Nicolas Roy to a two-year contract extension worth an average of $750,000 a year.
The team's General Manager Kelly McCrimmon made the announcement on Wednesday.
Roy made his Golden Knights debut against Anaheim on October 27 and scored the first goal of his NHL career. He has appeared in 28 games with Vegas this season and has tallied 10 points.
The native of Amos, Quebec, was acquired by the Golden Knights along with a conditional fifth-round draft pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft from Carolina in exchange for forward Erik Haula.
Last season with the AHL's Charlotte Checkers, Roy finished with 36 points in 69 games and ranked third on the team with five game-winning goals. He also appeared in 19 Calder Cup playoff games for the Checkers and helped lead the team to a Calder Cup championship.
The current NHL season remains on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
