Forward Tomas Nosek has agreed to a new one-year contract with the Vegas Golden Knights, reports Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

The deal is reportedly worth $962,500, per CapFriendly. Nosek is coming off a two-year contract that carried a $612,500 annual cap hit.

In signing with the Golden Knights, Nosek avoids an arbitration hearing that was set for July 30. He will be a restricted free agent once his new agreement expires.

In 67 games with the Golden Knights last season, Nosek notched seven goals and eight assists. The 25-year-old then upped his production in the postseason, tallying six points across 17 appearances, including the game-winning goal in the opening match of the Stanley Cup Final.

The Golden Knights claimed Nosek from the Detroit Red Wings in last summer’s expansion draft.
