After the trade, he became a key contributor to the Warriors’ offense, and finished out the season with WHL career-high points and penalty minutes.

2008-09: Knackstedt’s first full season with Providence (AHL) resulted in 10 goals and 26 points in 71 games.

Talent Analysis
Knackstedt is a blend of character, skill and grit; a good sized power forward who can put up points, but isn't afraid to drop the gloves.
