Wild Bill will stay in Vegas

The Vegas Golden Knights have officially signed William Karlsson to an extension.
The 26-year-old Swedish forward is locked into a team friendly eight-year deal with an Average Annual Value of $5.9 Million.
Jesse Granger, The Athletic, reported that deal included a 10 team no move clause.

This move puts the current cap estimate for the Golden Knights at around 89 million. Seven higher than the current expected salary cap.
Karlsson had 24 goals and 32 assists in 82 games last season.

Vegas had until July 1 to work out the extension before Karlsson would become unrestricted.

Karlsson had signed an extension in August 2018 worth $5.25 million to avoid arbitration.

The locking in of Karlsson locks in the Golden Knight’s top-lines until 2021 when Paul Stastny will be an unrestricted free agent.
