Vegas Golden Knights Sign Logan Thompson to 2-Year Entry Level Contract

The Vegas Golden Knights general manager Kelly McCrimmon announced on July 13 that the team signed Logan Thompson to a two-year entry level contract.

The Calgary, Alberta native and goaltender appeared in 32 games during the 2019-20 season with the South Carolina Stingrays in the ECHL. He recorded a 2.25 goals-against average and .929 save percentage in just his one season with the Stingrays.

Logan Thompson’s Accomplishments

The newest Golden Knight was named the U Sports OUA West Goaltender of the Year in 2018-19 while playing for Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. During his tenure at Brock University, Thompson had a 2.22 GAA and .934 save percentage in 24 games. Thompson also played four seasons with the Brandon Wheat Kings in the Western Hockey League and helped the team win the WHL Championship during the 2015-16 season. McCrimmon was also the head coach during that season.

The 23-year-old comes into the organization with the possibility of replacing both Robin Lehner and Garret Sparks. Both goaltenders are going to be unrestricted free agents heading into free agency. Thompson’s experience and success in both the ECHL and WHL will give some advantage to hold onto as a young NHL goaltender.
