RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Connor Knapp.
Knapp struggled in his first season as a pro, finishing the year with Greenville of the ECHL after failing to gain traction with the Sabres’ AHL affiliate in Rochester. He’s certainly not a blue-chip prospect, but the Sabres still likely expected better numbers than what he delivered in the AHL (1-6, 3.34 GAA, .893 SV%). Knapp will compete for the chance to play backup to Matt Hackett in Rochester, but could see time in the ECHL once again.
Knapp is set to begin his first season of professional hockey after a four-year college career with Miami University (Ohio). A sixth-rounder in 2009, Knapp signed an entry-level contract in April and will compete for the right to back up David Leggio with the Sabres' AHL affiliate in Rochester.
