The Vegas Golden Knights signed forward William Carrier to a four-year contract extension with an average annual value of $1.4 million, the team announced Thursday.

Carrier, 25, is on the final year of his current deal and was set to become a restricted free agent on July 1.

The 6-foot-2 winger has recorded seven goals and a career-best 18 points through 65 games this season, his third with the Golden Knights. He also ranks second on the club and sixth in the league with 199 hits.

Vegas selected Carrier during the 2017 expansion draft.

With Carrier signed, forwards Chandler Stephenson, Nick Cousins, and Nicolas Roy, along with defenseman Zach Whitecloud, are the team's remaining restricted free agents heading into this summer.
