Tri-City Herald: The puck stops with Lee-Knight

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

Standing in net Saturday night at Spokane Arena, with 10,366 people breathing down his neck, Luke Lee-Knight never flinched.

Playing against his former team for the first time — in a Tri-City Americans jersey no less — Lee-Knight made one spectacular save after another, leading the Americans to a 4-3 win in overtime.

“I was a little psyched for the game,” Lee-Knight said. “It was my first time playing against them, you want to show them what they could have had. A majority of them (the Spokane players) I played with. It was a lot of fun.”

It was a game Lee-Knight likely would not have played if regular starter Eric Comrie had not been shut down the day before with a hip injury. In fact, Lee-Knight has started the last six games for the Americans heading into tonight’s home game with Seattle. He is 4-2 in that run, with losses to Kelowna and Kamloops.
