Vegas Golden Knights forward William Karlsson is closing in on an eight-year contract with the club, multiple sources confirmed to The Athletic's Jesse Granger on Sunday.

The deal's average annual value will be "a shade under $6 million," according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Karlsson is a pending restricted free agent who's coming off a one-year, $5.25-million pact he inked with the Golden Knights last August.

He regressed this past season but still posted 24 goals and 56 points after exploding for 43 goals and 78 points in 2017-18.

The two-way center played in every game over the last two campaigns and has missed only two regular-season contests in the last four years.

Report: Leafs to sign Agostino to 2-year deal.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are to sign forward Kenny Agostino to a two-year, one-way contract with an average annual value close to $700,000, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie. Agostino recorded career highs with six goals and 24 points in 63 games between the Montreal Canadiens and New Jersey Devils last season. With restricted free agent Mitch Marner in need of a new deal, Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas has little salary space to work with, and the addition of Agostino at close to the league minimum gives the team another depth option up front. The 27-year-old was selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the fifth round of the 2010 NHL Draft.
