The Vegas Golden Knights are committed to Nate Schmidt, and not even a lengthy suspension is going to stop that.

The team announced Thursday that they have signed the 27-year old defenceman to a seven-year, $35.7 million contract extension.

Schmidt, who was acquired by the Golden Knights during the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, posted five goals, 31 assists and a plus-19 rating in 76 games last season. He also amassed seven points in 20 playoff games during the team’s run to the Stanley Cup Final in June.

He has currently served nine games out of his 20 game suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy during the offseason.
