    Smith’s three-year deal with Vegas, which he reportedly verbally agreed to in late June, was confirmed Wednesday on the first day of free agency. “I feel like I’ve put my heart and soul into this organization,” he said on Thursday. “I’m very fortunate that they noticed that and they’re giving me the opportunity to come back here and chase the goal we started five years ago. ... There was no doubt in my mind that this is where I wanted to play. You know, pretty much finish out my career here.”

  • VGK Left Wing #19
    Reilly Smith has signed a three-year deal worth $15 million with the Vegas Golden Knights.

He had 16 goals and 38 points in 56 games last season and will look to get to the 55-60 point mark next season if he can stay healthy.
