The Vegas Golden Knights re-signed forward Nicolas Roy to a five-year contract with an average annual value of $3 million.

Roy was a restricted free agent coming off a two-year deal with a cap hit of $750,000.

The 25-year-old established career highs with 15 goals, 24 assists, and 78 games played this past season. It was his first time playing more than 50 NHL contests since debuting with Vegas in 2017-18.

The Carolina Hurricanes drafted Roy 96th overall in 2015, but he only played seven games over two seasons for the club. The Canes traded him to the Golden Knights in 2019 in a deal that landed them forward Erik Haula.
