Read about how Matthew Knies, the young forward for the Toronto Maple Leafs, made an impact in just his second game by recording his first NHL point.

In just his second game with the Toronto Maple Leafs, forward Matthew Knies has already made an impact, recording his first NHL point with an assist on Ryan O’Reilly’s third period goal. The 20-year-old winger was drafted by the Maple Leafs in the second round of the 2021 NHL draft and has quickly shown his potential on the big stage.

Before joining the Leafs, Knies spent the last two seasons at the University of Minnesota, where he played in 73 games, scoring 36 goals and assisting on 39 others for a total of 75 points. His impressive college career caught the attention of the Maple Leafs organization, who signed him for their final games of the season after his college season ended.

As the Maple Leafs head towards the playoffs, the addition of Knies could provide a different element to the team’s offense. With his first NHL point now under his belt, Knies will look to build on this early success and establish himself as a reliable contributor for the Maple Leafs in the years to come.

ith the regular season drawing to a close, the Toronto Maple Leafs and their fans have a lot to be excited about, as they face off against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the NHL Playoffs. We will see if this is the year the leafs break the curse.
