Las Vegas–The Vegas Golden Knights today announced that they have re-signed forward William Carrier to a new two year contract.

Carrier’s new contract has an AAV of $725,000 per season and runs thru 2019-20.

His fellow linemate Tomas Nosek recently extended his stay in Vegas by avoiding going thru with his salary arbitration hearing as he inked a new one year deal with the team.

With Nosek and Carrier both signed on for at least one more season with the Golden Knights this keeps “The International Line” intact along with Pierre-Edouard Bellemare.

This past season, Carrier skated in 37 games with the Golden Knights and in that span, he scored one goal, two assists for three points and finished out the regular season with a +3 rating.
