A Day 1 Golden Knight is staying put in Vegas.

The club re-signed winger Reilly Smith to a three-year contract with a $5-million cap hit.

Smith recorded 16 goals and 22 assists in 56 games for the Golden Knights last season. He ranks third on Vegas’ all-time points list with 230, behind Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson.

The Golden Knights shipped Max Pacioretty to the Carolina Hurricanes earlier Wednesday to help make cap space for Smith.

Vegas also re-signed center Brett Howden to a one-year, $1.5-million contract.
