Observations:

 

May 2012 – After leading London with 70 points in 68 games, Jared has taken the backseat in the playoffs with only eight in 14 games and holding a minus-2 in the OHL playoffs, while many of his teammates have exploded. Jason Banks

 

December, 2011 – A physical goal-scorer in the mold of Dustin Brown, Knight’s been pushed aside in London by a strong cast of one-dimensional forwards. But Knight is a coach’s dream; should he earn a fourth-line camp in spot next fall, he’ll be able to provide a bevy of gifts and a strong two-way game that bench boss Claude Julien can use in a number of situations.

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

Boston’s deep roster will be tough to crack. Not first-line potential, but top six.
