BREAKING: Maple Leafs Matthew Knies receives a promotion

The Toronto Maple Leafs have lost their fourth straight game despite some quality offensive play, and after calls to shakeup the lineup, it appears that Sheldon Keefe has finally done it.

Knies promoted


After trying several players to replace Matthew Bunting on the top line alongside Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, Toronto have now given them a genuine option on the left wing.

According to a report, the Leafs recent lines at practice suggest that rookie Matthew Knies is now on that line, ending his time in the bottom-six with this lineup.

In a limited role, Knies has two goals and two assists for 4 points through 11 games, and if he can continue his solid play, they may have found themselves a lethal top line to make this arguably the best top-six in all of hockey.
