Knight's stats have increased steadily for 4 years. He's been largely unknown and underappreciated. Most other teams' fans probably didn't even know who he was before this season. Probably because he's not flashy, he just goes about his business game in and out, being solid in all areas of the game. He's having a great season, and is a very good prospect, but keep in mind he's also a senior. I think his upside is a 2nd line center, with the likely outcome of a great 3rd liner. He's been more consistent than Shore and Bjugstad in college, but out of the three is the least skilled, IMO.

He's currently sixth on the team in scoring (though he has missed time), but I'd say he is easily the best player on the team. He is almost singlehandedly keeping the Royals afloat amidst myriad injuries to our top forwards.

There is a reason why a 46 point WHL player got drafted in the third round. He is one hell of a player whose points do not even come close to telling the whole story.
What impressed me right away about him was that he fought Kessy.
