Brayden McNabb got his first goal of the season on Thursday night in a 4-2 loss to Minnesota.

Brayden McNabb has inked a four-year, $10 million contract extension with the Vegas Golden Knights.

McNabb could have become an unrestricted free agent this summer as this is the final season of his two-year, $3.4 million deal. While he didn't have much of a role with the Kings in 2016-17, he's been a meaningful part of the expansion team. McNabb has averaged 19:30 minutes per game, though his lack of offensive contributions keeps his fantasy value minimal. Through 20 contests he has two assists and a plus-10 rating.

Vegas Golden Knights head coach Gerard Gallant has announced that Brayden McNabb will return to the lineup tonight.

After starting the opening four games of the season, McNabb was scratched for the last two games. He's known more for his work in his own end rather than in the offensive end. Still no word on who will be sacrificed in the lineup to make room for him.

Brayden McNabb is optimistic about the Vegas Golden Knights' chances in their expansion season.

McNabb was Vegas' choice from Los Angeles in the expansion draft. "I think we’re going to be competitive," McNabb said. "There are a lot of good players we selected and some young guys too. We’ve got great goaltending, so it starts there. So it’ll be fun." Vegas' roster is better than your typical expansion team, but it still doesn't look particularly impressive. Vegas might be able to surprise people, but at the end of the day the Golden Knights shouldn't be projected to compete for a playoff spot in their first season.
