  • Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Scores three points Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/21/18) Karlsson scored the first goal and added two helpers in a 7-2 rout of the Kings on Thursday

    The line of Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith was incredible Thursday, racking up a combined 11 points in the first 26:32 of the contest. Obviously, these kinds of nights won't happen often, but the play of Karlsson and his linemates suggests that last year was no fluke.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: In midseason form with two points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/17/18) Karlsson scored on the power play and added an assist in Sunday's 7-2 preseason win over the Coyotes.

    Wild Bill curiously went from a career-high 25 points with the Blue Jackets to an astounding 78 points (43 goals, 35 assists) over a full 2017-18 campaign with the Golden Knights in their fairy-tale run at the Stanley Cup. There could be less pressure on Karlsson to carry so much of the offensive responsibility since the team added bona fide scoring options in Max Pacioretty and Paul Stastny this offseason, but few (if any) pundits are expecting him to maintain his gaudy 23.4 shooting percentage.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Avoids arbitration with one-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/4/18) Karlsson agreed to a one-year, $5.25 million contract extension with the Golden Knights on Saturday, the Las Vegas-Review Journal reports.

    The two sides reportedly were scheduled for an arbitration hearing Saturday morning in Toronto. Basically, this buys more time for a long-term deal to be made for the man who led the Golden Knights in points (78), with his total comprised of 43 goals and 35 assists over 82 games of an incredible inaugural showing for the Vegas franchise.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Seems bound for arbitration

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/2/18) Karlsson and the Golden Knights are $3 million apart in their contract negotiations, which appears to have the sides headed toward Saturday's arbitration hearing, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

    Karlsson's ask ($6.5 million) is relatively reasonable in light of his 78-point 2017-18 campaign; however, the team is no doubt looking at his two prior years in which he logged a combined 45 points. With just over $13 million in cap space, Vegas isn't exactly strapped for cash, but likely wants to see more consistently high numbers out of the 24-year-old before shelling out on a long-term deal.

    Golden Knights' William Karlsson: Elects salary arbitration

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/5/18) Karlsson filed for salary arbitration Thursday.

    Karlsson exploded in 2017-18, leading Vegas with 43 goals and 78 points while posting an impressive plus-49 rating in 82 contests, so he's definitely expecting a big pay day. The Golden Knights can still sign the 25-year-old forward to a long-term deal before his arbitration hearing, and it would hardly be surprising if that ends up being the end result.
