Golden Knights sign trio of 1st-round picks to entry-level contracts

The Vegas Golden Knights have signed first-round picks Cody Glass, Nick Suzuki, and Erik Brannstrom to three-year, entry-level contracts, the team announced Saturday.

Glass was Vegas' first-ever draft at sixth overall. The 6-foot-2 center spent last season with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League, recording 32 goals and 94 points in 69 games.

Suzuki was then taken at No. 13. The 5-foot-11 center had 45 goals and 96 points with the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League.

With their final first-round pick, the Knights took Swedish defenseman Erik Brannstrom. The 5-foot-9 blue-liner tallied six points in 35 games while playing with HV71 Jonkoping of the Swedish Hockey League - the top professional league in the nation.
