The Calgary Canucks are pleased to announce that Adam Knight has been named as Assistant Coach for the upcoming 2014-2015 season.
“I’m looking forward to getting going, meeting the players and getting in tune with junior hockey,” explained Knight.
Knight joins the Canucks after a year as assistant coach of the ACAC winning SAIT Trojans. He brings with him three years of playing Junior A hockey in British Columbia where he captained the Prince George Spruce Kings and Cowichan Valley Capitals, four years at SAIT and two years of professional hockey in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Though Coach Knight is originally from 100 Mile House, British Columbia, he and his fiancée now call Calgary home.
“He brings a wealth of hockey knowledge and professionalism with him, and will be a huge part of the Calgary Canucks success moving forward,” said General Manager and Head Coach Ryan Barrett.
Wayne Andrews has also been named as the Education Advisor.
Coach Knight and the team will get a chance to see the ice for the first time at the main training camp starting on August 18 at the Max Bell Centre.
