Highlights
1-time Olympic Bronze Medal 1

Knazko's passing skills are refined for a defenceman. He can find players in the seam and on the breakout with great accuracy. He's comfortable with making plays from his backhand and makes sharp passes with good power behind them. His mobility stood out; he has the skating ability to be effective defending against the rush and during long cycles. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
