From the High River Times:
It wasn’t an easy climb for Knight. In NHL Central Scouting’s midseason report, he was unranked, but he quickly shot up to No. 64 in the final rankings in April, the biggest jump of any player in North America.
Although his skills prove he deserved to be drafted, Knight confessed, he wasn’t expecting it.
"It was my dream to be drafted and there it was," he said. "I’m really excited, they (the Panthers) are a very good team."
