Top Matthew Knies News

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Scores again Monday

    Knies scored a goal on his lone shot in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Penguins.

    Knies got Toronto on the board early in the second period, directing a T.J. Brodie feed past Alex Nedeljkovic to tie the game 1-1. The 21-year-old Knies now has three goals over his last four games and points in six of the last seven contests. Knies has emerged as a legitimate scoring threat in a middle-six role -- he's up to 15 goals and 35 points through 75 games this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Two points vs. Florida

    Knies picked up a goal and an assist in Monday's 6-4 win over the Panthers.

    Knies set up Nick Robertson on a breakaway to open the scoring late in the first period before extending Toronto's lead to 5-1 in the second, directing a Pontus Holmberg feed past Sergei Bobrovsky. The 21-year-old Knies has points in four straight contests, totaling a goal and four assists in that span. He's up to 13 goals and 33 points through 72 games this season while holding down a middle-six role.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Back from minors

    Knies, who exited Thursday's game due to an undisclosed injury, has been recalled from AHL Toronto on Friday and is expected to play Saturday versus Montreal, per Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun.

    Knies was briefly sent to the minors Friday in a paper transaction. He has 11 goals, 26 points, 33 PIM and 127 hits in 61 NHL outings in 2023-24.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Reassigned to AHL

    Knies, who exited Thursday's game because of an undisclosed injury, was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Friday, per Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun. It's believed this move is merely a paper transaction.

    Knies has 11 goals, 36 points, 33 PIM and 127 hits in 61 NHL contests this season. Even if he is just temporarily being moved to the minors for cap reasons or to maintain his eligibility for the AHL playoffs, Knies being reassigned indicates that he's healthy enough to play. It wouldn't be surprising to see him recalled before Saturday's game against the Canadiens.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Exits Thursday's contest

    Knies exited Thursday's game against Boston because of an undisclosed injury, according to Joshua Kloke of The Athletic. However, it's believed that his injury is not serious.

    Knies logged just 3:18 of ice time before exiting. He entered the contest with 11 goals, 26 points, 31 PIM and 129 hits in 60 appearances this season. If Knies is unavailable for Saturday's match against Montreal, then Pontus Holmberg might draw into the lineup.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Gets 11th goal of season

    Knies scored a goal Thursday in a 4-2 win over Arizona.

    It was an easy tap-in to open the scoring. Mitchell Marner stole a puck at the defensive blue line and took off on a breakaway, only to leave a between-the-legs drop pass for Knies who tapped it in from the top of the goal crease. Knies has 11 goals and 26 points in 57 games this season. Yes, more was expected from the rookie this year, but he's just one season removed from the NCAA, and his future is very bright.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Snaps 17-game goal drought

    Knies scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 5-3 loss to the Senators.

    The goal, which snapped a 17-game goal drought, came on a smart deflection of a Mitchell Marner shot from in tight. Knies has just 20 points in 48 games, but fantasy managers should continue to exercise patience. It's easy to forget that Knies is a rookie with only 51 games played in his career. He has tremendous potential and the kind of game that the Leafs need should they make the postseason. But Knies isn't going put up loads of points this season -- remember, he was playing college hockey at this time last year.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Assists in back-to-back games

    Knies (knee) picked up an assist Thursday in a 4-3 OT loss to the Islanders.

    Thankfully, he was no worse for wear after twisting his knee at practice. Knies has an assist in two consecutive games. He has shown bursts of impressive effort this season, but he hasn't been able to convert that to consistent offense. Knies has one goal in his last 11 games. And in his last 16 games since the start of Dec, Knies has just six points, including two goals. His future is bright, but he's a tough fantasy play in single-year formats right now.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Expected to play Thursday

    Knies (knee) is expected to be in the lineup versus the Islanders on Thursday, Joshua Kloke of The Athletic reports.

    There was plenty of concern when Knies needed help off the ice at practice Wednesday, but he evidently only twisted his knee. Knies is seeing first-line action alongside Auston Matthews and Mitchell Marner, but he isn't seeing much power-play time, logging a total of 2:40 of ice time with the man advantage in his last 10 games. Knies has eight goals, seven assists, 63 hits and 52 shots on goal in 36 games this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Could still play Thursday

    Knies (leg) has not been ruled out against the Islanders on Thursday, Mark Masters of TSN reports.

    Knies appears to have avoided a serious injury after being helped off the ice at practice Wednesday. If he suits up versus New York, the 21-year-old Arizona native should maintain his place on the top line with Auston Matthews. Despite that plum assignment, Knies remains stuck in a six-game goalless streak during which he's recorded a mere seven shots.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Injured at practice

    Knies suffered a leg injury at practice Wednesday and needed help getting off the ice, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Knies has been a mainstay on the top line with Auston Matthews and Mitchell Marner this season but now could be in danger of missing out against the Islanders on Thursday. If the 21-year-old Knies can't play, it could mean a promotion for Tyler Bertuzzi or Max Domi to a first-line role.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Goals few and far between

    Knies scored a goal Wednesday in a 4-2 loss to Ottawa. It was his eighth of the season.

    Auston Matthews' shot deflected off Knies' skate in the slot at 5:41 of the first to open the scoring. It was Knies first goal in four games, and it was just his second goal and fourth point in his last 12 games. He shows tremendous presence and potential on the ice, but like so many young players, Knies can be a challenging play with many dry spells.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Gordie Howe hat trick in return

    Knies scored a goal and added an assist in a 7-0 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday.

    Knies missed two games due to illness, but looked none the worse for wear when he roared in on Tristan Jarry early in the first frame, held off a defender and lifted a backhand over the netminder's glove from the top of the crease. He fought Pens defender John Ludvig in the first and had an assist on Max Domi's second period goal to complete his Gordie Howe hat trick. Knies is tied for fifth on the NHL rookie goal list, with seven tallies, and he currently on a 40-point pace.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Expected back Saturday

    Knies (illness) will likely rejoin the Leafs on Saturday against Pittsburgh, per David Alter of The Hockey News.

    Knies had missed Toronto's last two games with an illness, but it appears he's on track to return Saturday against the Penguins. He has six goals and 11 points through 25 games this season. The 21-year-old rookie will likely return to a top-line role alongside Auston Matthews and William Nylander.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Ruled out again

    Knies (illness) will not be available versus Columbus on Thursday, Luke Fox of Sportsnet reports.

    Knies skated Thursday morning but won't be ready to suit up against the Blue Jackets. The 21-year-old winger is currently mired in a six-game goal drought during which he has registered just six shots while recording a lone assist. Still, once cleared to play, the youngster could be thrust back into a top-six role while seeing opportunities with the No. 2 power-play unit.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Won't play Tuesday

    Knies (illness) won't be in the lineup Tuesday versus the Rangers.

    Knies has accounted for six goals, 11 points, 33 shots on net and 47 hits in 25 games this season. Noah Gregor will play on the top line with Auston Matthews and William Nylander due to Knies' absence.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Third goal in five games

    Knies scored a goal Saturday in a 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Knies drove the net and punched in a rebound in the first period that put the Leafs up 2-1. It was his third goal in five games and sixth in 19 this season. Knies is seeing time alongside first-line studs Auston Matthews and Mitchell Marner, and he doesn't look out of place. The 21-year-old Knies is on the rise.

  • Maple Leafs' Matthew Knies: Records three points Monday

    Knies collected a goal and two assists in a 6-5 overtime win over Tampa Bay on Monday.

    Knies has three goals and seven points in 12 contests this year. That's not a bad start for the 21-year-old forward, but his offense is almost entirely due to two three-point games -- weirdly enough both against Tampa Bay. His other came Oct. 21 in Toronto's 4-3 overtime victory over the Lightning. That level of inconsistency is bound to frustrate fantasy managers, but Knies does have a lot of potential and has gotten looks in a top-six capacity.
