He comes with a $3.6 million annual cap hit, which isn't great for him, but it's only for one more season before he'll become an unrestricted free agent, so the Golden Knights don't have any long-term concerns there.

Luca Sbisa (hand) had five hits in his return to the Canucks' lineup on Sunday.

Sbisa also logged 19:33 minutes of ice time to help Vancouver earn a 2-1 shootout victory over the New York Islanders. It was his first game since Dec. 1. "That was definitely a battle," said Sbisa. "But it’s good to have one like this the first game back and have everything you could ask for. The shots were lopsided (48-26) but we battled and I felt better as the game wore on. The first two (periods), I was gassed. A lot of it had to do with a little anxiety in the first game back. You waste a lot of energy because you’re so excited."
