Calgary's alternate logo, 1999–2007 (Photo credit: Wikipedia) It sounds like former UND forward Corban Knight had what some would classify as a rough prospects camp with the Calgary Flames. Here's a couple of quotes that I found from a couple of different articles. Ryan Pike, The Hockey Writers --- Up front, highly-touted prospects Corban Knight and Sven Baertschi arguably disappointed – in that they failed to stand out from the pack during the week. Rather than distinguish themselves as head-and-shoulders above the rest, these contenders for NHL jobs are now joined by Markus Granlund, Michael Ferland, Max Reinhart and perhaps even former Red Deer Rebels captain Turner Elson in the hunt. While the Flames GM Jay Feaster wasn't very complementry about some of his prospects play during the Flames prospect Camp. Flames coach Troy Ward was even a little more pointed in his criticisms towards some of his players. Here's what the Flames coach Troy Ward had to say about Corban Knight's play, during the Flames prospect camp, that was held in Penticton, B.C.. Yikes! Scott CRruickshank, CALGARY HERALD --- Monday, 7 p.m. at the WinSport Ice Complex, the Flames play their fourth game in five nights, taking on the University of Calgary Dinos. Which, apparently, would be an ideal time for Corban Knight to pick it up. Asked about the play of Knight, Ward didn’t sugar-coat things. Yes, the centre had scored Sunday — as did Granlund — but the coach demands more. “To be honest, he’s got to play with some passion, some vigour,” said Ward. “This isn’t college — you’re not going to have the puck all the time. You’re going to have to go get it back. When Corban has the puck, I’m fine with that. But when he doesn’t have it, he’s going to have to play like Ferland . . . and get his nose dirty.” Knight is getting his first taste of pro after four seasons at the University of North Dakota.
