Golden Knights sign former Kings draft pick Tomas Hyka

The Vegas Golden Knights have signed another player.

There were reports Thursday that the Golden Knights have signed free agent forward Tomas Hyka, a former L.A. Kings sixth-round draft pick from 2012. The entry-level deal has since been announced by the club.

Hyka has spent the last three seasons in the Czech Republic, playing for Mlada Boleslav BK. He had 17 goals and 38 points in 48 games last season, reaching single-season career highs for games played, goals, assists and points while playing in that league.

The next few weeks are critical to the Golden Knights, with the expansion draft quickly approaching. On Thursday, the league released a long list of important dates for the new franchise between now and the expansion draft on June 21.

There could be some big news for the Golden Knights prior to their draft, with reports Vegas and the Blackhawks could strike a significant deal before that date.
