ImpactThe Flames like Knight and expect him to return to Calgary this season. "(GM) Jay (Feaster) and (coach) Bob (Hartley) made it very clear this isn't a negative, it's part of the process," Knight said from Abbotsford, the Flames AHL farm team. "They were happy with how camp went and believed it's better for me to come here and work to get better. They said they see me as part of the plans going forward and that's positive and exciting. It is tough getting sent down but it's exciting to be told to work on a few things and it'll be right there." Knight played the last four seasons with the University of North Dakota and will make his pro debut.
