The Vegas Golden Knights officially signed newly acquired forward Mark Stone to an eight-year extension worth $9.5 million annually.
Stone, 26, was recently acquired by the Golden Knights from the Ottawa Senators at the 2019 Trade Deadline. The Senators acquired Erik Brannstrom, Oscar Lindberg and a 2020 second-round pick.
So far Stone has two assists in five games for his new club. This season he has 28 goals and 64 points in 64 games.
The extension includes a no-move clause. Also, $48 million of $76 million is the signing bonus. In the 2020-2021 season, he will be receiving a $7 million bonus. This gives Stone financial protection in what could be a potential lockout season.
