LAS VEGAS (AP) William Karlsson and the Vegas Golden Knights avoided arbitration with a $5.25 million, one-year contract for the high-scoring forward.
General manager George McPhee announced the deal Saturday. Karlsson gets a significant raise from his previous $1 million salary.
"In the arbitration process, it helps to get the deal done," McPhee said. "The parties get sharper and more focused as the hearing nears. We're happy with this deal and we believe that William is as well. He seems to be happy with it. It was a good compromise."
