The Vegas Golden Knights have inked defenceman Brayden McNabb to a three-year contract extension.

McNabb will carry a $2.85 million cap hit in each year of the deal. The defenceman was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old has nine points in 45 games this season for the Golden Knights while leading the NHL with 110 blocked shots. He is the only player in the league to record at least 100 hits and 110 blocked shots.

McNabb was selected by the Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft and has spent the last five seasons with the club. The Davidson, Sask., native was originally selected in the third round of the 2009 NHL Draft by the Buffalo Sabres where he played for two years before spending three seasons with the Los Angeles Kings.

In 552 career games, McNabb has 22 goals and 107 points. He is the Golden Knights' all-time leader in blocked shots with 634 and is second in hits with 824.
