The Vegas Golden Knights have re-signed forward Nicolas Roy on a five-year contract, worth $15 million ($3 million AAV), the team announced Monday.

The 25-year-old Quebec native was a restricted free agent this summer, coming off a two-year, $1.5-million deal with Vegas.

Drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in the fourth round (96th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft, Roy spent two seasons in the organization before being traded to the Golden Knights in June 2019.

Roy’s 2021-2022 season with Vegas, his third with the team, saw him reach career-highs in games played (78), goals (15), assists (24), and points (39).

With Vegas failing to make the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Roy joined teammates Zach Whitecloud and Logan Thompson, representing Team Canada at the IIHF World Championships in Finland this summer.

In 163 total career games, Roy has collected 26 goals and 38 assists. He also has five goals and 12 assists over 39 playoff games, all with the Golden Knights.
