The Vegas Golden Knights have re-signed restricted free agent forward William Karlsson to one-year, $5.25 million contract, avoiding arbitration.

Karlsson, 25, exploded onto the scene last season, registering 43 goals and 35 assists for 78 points in 82 games with the Golden Knights.

In 265 career NHL regular-season games with the Anaheim Ducks, Columbus Blue Jackets and Golden Knights, Karlsson has accumulated 61 goals and 67 assists for 128 points, along with 30 penalty minutes.

Karlsson, a native of Marsta, Sweden, was originally drafted by the Ducks in the second-round, 53rd overall, of the 2011 NHL Draft.
