Knights mine German league

The Knights signed forward Brooks Macek, who helped Germany win the silver medal at the 2018 Olympics, to a two-way contract.

Macek, 26, led the Deutsche Eishockey Liga in Germany with 26 goals during the regular season. He posted 44 points in 50 games and added 15 points (eight goals, seven assists) to help EHC Red Bull München win its third straight German league championship.
