General manager Ray Shero announced the deal Thursday, noting that Kinkaid will get $1.2 million this season and $1.3 million in 2018-19.
Kinkaid, who turns 28 on July 4, set career highs with 26 games played, 23 games started and 713 saves. He was 8-13-3 with one shutout, a 2.64 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage.
