KAMLOOPS — Blazers goaltender Dylan Ferguson has signed a three-year, entry level contract with the NHL's Vegas Golden Knights.

Dallas then traded him to the Golden Knights in exchange for defenceman Marc Methot and a draft pick.

Ferguson was the winning goaltender in the Golden Knights' first ever preseason game, a 9-4 win over Vancouver.
