|LAS VEGAS (AP) — William Karlsson and the Vegas Golden Knights avoided arbitration with a $5.25 million Morgan Rielly Jersey , one-year contract for the high-scoring forward.
General manager George McPhee announced the deal Saturday. Karlsson gets a significant raise from his previous $1 million salary.
“In the arbitration process, it helps to get the deal done,” McPhee said. “The parties get sharper and more focused as the hearing nears. We’re happy with this deal and we believe that William is as well. He seems to be happy with it. It was a good compromise.”
The 25-year-old Karlsson set career highs with 43 goals and 35 assists in 82 games last season, helping Vegas win the Pacific Division and reach the Stanley Cup Final. He won the Lady Byng Award for sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct with a high standard of play.
Karlsson was hoping for a long-term contract, but instead gets a one-year deal before becoming a restricted free agent once again next season.
“There are cases like this one where sometimes both sides need a little more time to evaluate what that value is Brett Favre Jersey ,” McPhee said. “He’s being paid very well, similar to his linemates. We talked about being happy that we have the deal done and both sides are looking forward to getting going next year and at some point next year getting a deal done.”
Karlsson played on Vegas’ top line with Reilly Smith and Jonathan Marchessault last season. The trio combined to score 92 goals.
The Golden Knights selected Karlsson from the Columbus Blue Jackets in the expansion draft in the summer of 2017. He had 18 goals and 32 assists in 183 NHL games before last season.
The Browns quickly stuffed a hole in their backfield with Carlos Hyde.
Cleveland reached a contract agreement with the free agent running back, who will replace Isaiah Crowell and give the Browns a bruising runner to complement Duke Johnson, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The team is expected to announce the deal after 4 p.m., when teams are permitted to finalize contracts negotiated during the NFL's two-day "legal tampering period Womens Deryk Engelland Jersey , said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity for that reason.
NFL Network reported the Browns will give Hyde a three-year, $15 million deal.
The 27-year-old Hyde, who played at Ohio State, spent the past four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. He's started 36 games, rushed for 2 Womens Alejandro Villanueva Jersey ,729 yards, averaged 4.2 yards per carry and scored 21 touchdowns. Hyde also has 109 catches for 634 yards and three TDs.
Hyde has rushed for over 900 yards the past two seasons, and his addition will offset the probable loss of Crowell, who has been in talks with the New York Jets.
The Browns are also exploring a long-term contract with the versatile Johnson, who was their best offensive player last season when they went 0-16.
With the signing of Hyde Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey , it's unlikely the Browns will use either the No. 1 or No. 4 overall picks in this year's draft on Penn State's Saquon Barkley, considered the top running back in this year's class.
Browns general manager John Dorsey has spotted quality running backs deeper in the draft. Just last year with Kansas City, he selected Kareem Hunt in the third round and the speedy Hunt rushed for 1,327 yards as a rookie.
