Red Picks Up Rochester Forward

According to Chris Heisenberg, Cornell has received a commitment from John Knisley (5' 8", 160), a 1992-born forward who played last season for Pittsford High School and for the Rochester Alliance. John scored 20 goals and added 24 assists as a freshman for the Pittsford Panthers last year and was named to the All-Greater Rochester team and was a 2nd-team All-State selection. John played with Team Navy this summer in the Select 16 Festival and had an 0-4-4 line in 5 games.

The Scouting News had this to say about John: [Has] great outside speed, very shifty with the puck...quick and dangerous around the net...very good acceleration with and without the puck...needs to work on his defensive game to be a solid all-around player.

John will probably be joining Cornell in 2011.

Welcome to the Big Red, John.
