RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Keeper alert. Knight seems likely to start the season with AHL Providence, but he's a candidate for an in-season promotion and the B's have high hopes for the energetic and hard driving forward, who scored 26 goals and 52 points in 52 games for the OHL's London Knights this past season.
Knight, selected 32d overall in the 2010 NHL draft, racked up 70 points in 68 games for OHL London this past season. He's viewed as a solid competitor with some offensive skills and he could make a run at a roster spot with the big club this fall.
Taken in June with a second-round draft choice courtesy of the Phil Kessel trade, Knight is a smallish center with some upside on offense. He's one of a slew of young forwards who have a chance to make an impact for the B's down the road, though probably not this season.
