While speaking following the conclusion of the draft, Golden Knights GM Kelly McCrimmon told reporters, including Jesse Granger of The Athletic (Twitter link) that the team has re-signed Gage Quinney to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The 25-year-old made his NHL debut this past season, getting into three games with Vegas where he recorded an assist while playing just under ten minutes a night. Quinney was one of their top scorers with AHL Chicago, however, picking up 17 goals and 19 assists in 46 games; that performance wasn’t enough to get him on their playoff roster, however.
McCrimmon indicated that he expects Quinney to once again start in the minors next season and be a recall option as the year goes on. He does have one year of waiver exemption remaining before becoming eligible in 2021-22.
