The Golden Knights signed goaltender Dylan Ferguson to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Thursday.
Ferguson, 19, was the winning goalie in the Knights’ 9-4 victory at Vancouver in the preseason opener Sept. 17. He was returned to his major junior team two days later and will play this season with Kamloops of the Western Hockey League.
Ferguson was acquired by the Knights in June as part of the deal that sent defenseman Marc Methot to Dallas. He was selected by the Stars in the seventh round (No. 194 overall) of the 2017 draft.
