BREAKING: Golden Knights Sign William Karlsson to an 8-year contract

The Vegas Golden Knights are continuing to skyrocket above the salary cap, as they have just signed William Karlsson to a new contract.
The Vegas Golden Knights have locked up centre William Karlsson to an 8-year contract, carrying an AAV of 5.9 million dollars.

After a breakout season during the Golden Knights inaugural year in the NHL, Karlsson slowed down considerably this year, scoring 24 goals and 56 points with Vegas this season.

This contract will put the Golden Knights total cap hit at around 89 million dollars, 7.5 million above the upper limit. The team still needs to re-sign players like Nikita Gusev and Malcolm Subban, and will likely look to trade away a big-name player like Max Pacioretty or Paul Statsny on July 1st.
