Heat sign Nemisz, Knight

The Abbotsford Heat, by way of the Calgary Flames, have added two forwards to their roster.

Knight, 22, is coming off of four years with the NCAA’s University of North Dakota. At UND, Knight averaged almost a point per game, with 52 goals and 94 assists in 161 games. Standing at 6’2″ and 188 pounds, the 2009 fifth round draft pick has good size and the offensive talent to make an impact.

The Flames acquired Knight from the Florida Panthers in exchange for a fourth round draft pick.

Nemisz, who was a restricted free-agent, signed on for one more year with the Flames/Heat. Though Nemisz saw some NHL action in both 2010-11 and 2011-12, he spent his entire season in Abbotsford in 2012-13. Over 55 games in the AHL last year, the 23 -year-old has 10 points (3-7) in 55 games.
