Golden Knights lock up three players for future

It was a busy off day Sunday as Vegas General Manager Kelly McCrimmon announced that the team signed Brayden McNabb, Michael Amadio, and Logan Thompson to contract extensions.

McNabb’s extension is for three years and carries a cap hit of 2.85 M. McNabb has been with the Golden Knights from the start after being selected in the expansion draft. In his five years with the club, he’s been a reliable option up and down the defensive lineup wherever he’s needed. So far this season, he has two goals and seven assists in 45 games played with a +8 +/- rating.

The second extension was Amadio signing a two-year extension with an AAV of $766,667. After being claimed off waivers early in the season from Toronto, the 25-year-old filled in nicely in the bottom six while the Golden Knights struggled through injury and COVID-19 issues. He’s contributed three goals and four assists in his 25 games so far.

The last of the signings saw the organization extend Henderson Silver Knights goaltender Logan Thompson. This was a three-year contract carrying an AAV of $766,667 as well. The 24-year-old won the AHL’s goalie of the year honors last season, going 16-6-2 with a 1.96 GAA and a save percentage of .943. He’s posted very respectable numbers so far this season as well, possessing a record of 11-7-4 with a .928 save percentage and a 2.62 GAA. When he made his first career start in January vs. Nashville, Thompson became the first former USports goalie (Canadian University) to start a game since 1990.
