Graham Knott bio

Knott signed a three-year entry-level deal with the Blackhawks at the end of September. He has four goals and 13 assists in 14 games this season with Niagara.

“Graham has size and skill and will be a great fit in our top-six forward group,” Windsor GM Warren Rychel said in the release. “He can play both center and left wing for us and will help what is already two pretty good power play units.”

Knott is expected to make his Windsor debut on Saturday. Windsor is in first place in the West Division; Knott leaves Niagara in last place in the Central Division.


Forward Alex DeBrincat leads the OHL with 18 goals and is second in the league with 38 points. His 20 assists are tied for second in the league as well. DeBrincat’s Erie Otters are in first place in the Midwest Division of the OHL.

Forward Roy Radke has six goals – including one game-winner – and five assists in 12 games for the Barrie Colts. Barrie is in fourth place in the Central Division, ahead of only Niagara.

    Totally non related. But Bryan Brickell has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. A damn shame but that explains a lot and probably the vertigo.

    Yes, Ernie, I just saw that come across my NHL newsfeed as well. I was having some testing with a neurologist just yesterday, and we were discussing MS. You do have to wonder whether Bickell’s on ice problems were due in part to the onset of this progressive illness. It is indeed a damn shame and I wish him well. I remember that Minnesota’s goalie of a couple of two or three years ago was trying to play with MS.

    Josh Harding. Played 2 AHL games in 14/15. After having a pretty stellar 13/14. Terrible.
