The Vegas Golden Knights have signed goaltender Adin Hill to a two-year worth $9.8 million, with an AAV of $4.9 per year; this deal carries him through the 2024-25 season. Hill’s contract also has an eight-team no-trade clause next season and a five-team no-trade clause the year after. This is a well-deserved payday for the 27-year-old goaltender who led the Golden Knights to their first Stanley Cup Championship in franchise history and had an AAV of $2.175 when he signed his two-year deal with the San Jose Sharks. In 26 games last season with the Golden Knights, Hill had a 16-7-1 record with a 2.50 GAA and .915% in the regular season; in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, he went 11-4 with a 2.17 GAA, .932%, and two shutouts.
Vegas will have some decisions to make in net as Robin Lehner is expected to be healthy next season, and Logan Thompson still has two years left on his contract at under a million per season. It wouldn’t be a shock for Vegas to test the market to see what they could get for Thompson, as the goalie market this Summer is very slim. Thompson has a record of 31-18-6 with a 2.65 GAA, .915 SV%, and three shutouts in 57 games with the Golden Knights.
