Golden Knights Sign Four Players

The Golden Knights were strapped for cap space yesterday, having to give up Max Pacioretty to the Hurricanes for...future considerations. 

The Golden Knights still made a flurry of signings, as they still have a team to put together. 

Vegas signed goaltender Michael Hutchinson to a one-year two-way deal, worth $750K annually ($400K AHL). The thirty-two year old only played two games for the Leafs this past season, playing the rest with the Toronto Marlies. In 28 games in the AHL, Hutchinson posted an 11-10 record and a very poor .899 save percentage, with a 3.23 goals against average. 

Vegas signed forward Byron Froese to a two-year two-way deal, worth $762.5K annually ($462.5K AHL). The thirty-one year old spent this past season with the Stockton Heat, playing 55 games and scoring a respectable 20 goals and 17 points. In 13 playoff games, Froese put up one goal and nine assists.

The team re-signed forward Jonas Rondbjerg to a three-year deal, worth $766,667K annually. The twenty-three year old appeared in 30 games for Vegas this past season, scoring two goals and four assists. 

The Golden Knights also signed forward Sheldon Rempal to a two-year two-way deal, worth $762.5K annually ($450K AHL). The forward enjoyed an impressive season in the AHL this past year, playing 55 games with the Abbotsford Canucks, scoring 33 goals and 36 assists for 69 total points. 

The Vegas Golden Knights' cap space currently sits at -$1,394,643. They'll need to make some more moves to free up cap space before the start of the regular season.
