Golden Knights sign Schmidt to 6-year extension

Golden Knights sign Schmidt to 6-year extension The Vegas Golden Knights inked defenseman Nate Schmidt to a six-year contract extension with an average annual value of $5.95 million, the club announced late Wednesday night. The deal is front-loaded and includes a 10-team no-trade clause, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun. Schmidt is currently serving a 20-game suspension for violating the NHL/NHLPA performance-enhancing substances program. The 27-year-old is suspended without pay, but when he returns, he'll be in the final season of the two-year, $4.45-million pact he inked with the Golden Knights after being plucked from the Washington Capitals in the expansion draft two summers ago.

The Golden Knights defenseman will be back in the lineup Friday at T-Mobile Arena against the Ottawa Senators after missing six games with a sore throat and respiratory condition. Theodore will take Luca Sbisa’s spot in the lineup after Sbisa was injured Tuesday against the Los Angeles Kings.

Rookie Brady Tkachuk will return to the Ottawa Senators' lineup Thursday for their clash with the Vegas Golden Knights after missing the past nine games with a torn ligament in his leg, the team announced.

Tkachuk has been limited to just four appearances early in his first NHL season, as Thursday's contest will mark his first since Oct. 15. The 19-year-old has been incredibly productive when healthy, having put up three goals and six points in four games.

After suffering through more off-ice distractions earlier in the week, the Senators will be looking to build off Tuesday's commanding 7-3 win over the New Jersey Devils.
