2 goals and 10 shots is pretty good. I can't believe NHL GMs had the chance to take a 6'3 guy with skill and a strong work ethic and let him drop to the end of the 2nd round. His draft year was a bit derailed by covid/injury, but he was absolutely insane the year before

It was a crapshoot draft, and the Leafs may have benefited from that. Really looking forward to watching this kid's career progress over the next couple of seasons!

Matthews esque goal

Now you get to have a goal scorer on every line between 34 88 and this kid

I remember someone saying, maybe Dangle but I'm not sure, that when the draft happened a lot of Leaf fans weren't in a hopeful mood, and so we didn't really give Knies the notice he deserves when we drafted him. He was solid in the World Junior Summer Showcase, a very good bet to play for America at the WJC, and if he's producing like this in college too we have a lot to be excited for from him.

Insane release

I've got a feeling this guy's gonna be fun to watch for years to come

I have a really good feeling about this guy

That's a real nice goal. As soon as the pass is on the way to him he's thinking about generating a high danger chance with it. Uses speed to back off the defender, pivots to create more space for a shot, uses his hands to maintain the space, and then rips one for the goal. Lots of great little skill plays adding up in this one. Very nice.

Knies.

Fuckin loads it up and boom. Can't teach that shot. His size + shooting ability are a super valuable combination.
