The Vegas Golden Knights signed defenseman Deryk Engelland to a one-year contract extension through the 2018 to 2019 season. The contract is worth $1.5 million.

General Manager George McPhee made the announcement on Monday.

Engelland has tallied 13 points, to go with 16 penalty minutes in 41 games this season for the Golden Knights. He has also blocked the most shots, which ranks as the second-most for the team and tied for 28th in the league.

To say giving Engelland that kind of job security is well deserved, would be a massive understatement.He is the captain of this team, even if he isn't wearing the 'C' Congrats @DerykEngelland— Vince Sapienza (@VinceSapienza) January 15, 2018

He is a longtime Las Vegas resident and was selected by the Golden Knights during the 2017 expansion draft on June 21 from the Flames.

Engelland said he is excited to play for the Golden Knights for another year.
