The Vegas Golden Knights have signed winger Reilly Smith to a three-year contract extension worth $5 million per season.

The news comes after the Golden Knights dumped Max Pacioretty's $7-million cap hit on Carolina for future considerations.

Smith is coming off of a 38-point season where he, had he remained healthy, likely would have hit the 50-point mark for the sixth time in his career. Smith had a career-high 60 points with the Golden Knights in the team's debut season in 2017-18 and led the team in playoff scoring with 23 points that year.

The Golden Knights are in a tough spot where the roster they built to win immediately has ended up forcing them to move many of the key pieces to make cap space. The Golden Knights aren't done yet, either.
