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 Ontario Hockey League, recording 32 goals and 94 points in 69 games.

Suzuki was then taken at No. 13. Another center out of the OHL, the 5-foot-11 Suzuki had 45 goals and 96 points with the Owen Sound Attack.

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.
