Knak, selected as 179th overall by Nashville, will suit up for HC Davos to further his development. The 19-year-old already spent parts of last season with the National League club before returning to his WHL-team, the Portland Winterhawks.
"With his professional attitude, his talent, and his already great understanding of the game for his age, he has the potential to play an important role in any team. We will now give him this opportunity with Davos", team manager Jan Alston states.
"Here I can gain a lot of playing experience in professional hockey and already take responsibility on the ice", Knak himself is quoted.
