The Vegas Golden Knights acquired forward Chandler Stephenson from the Washington Capitals in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2021, the team announced Monday.

Vegas assigned forward Nicolas Roy to the AHL's Chicago Wolves in a corresponding move.

Stephenson, 25, has contributed three goals and four points through 24 games in a depth role with the Capitals this season.

The 6-foot center helped Washington capture its first Stanley Cup in 2018, collecting two goals and seven points over 24 playoff contests.

Stephenson signed a one-year, $1.05-million deal with the Capitals in July and is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer.
