A 6’3”, 230-pound right wing who will turn 37 on Saturday, Knuble has scored at least 21 goals in each of the last six seasons and won the Stanley Cup with Detroit in 1998. He had 27 goals and 20 assists (47 points) while playing 82 games for the Philadelphia Flyers this past season, ranking fifth on the team in goals, sixth in points, second in game-winning goals (6) and third in power-play goals (11).

Knuble has played 820 NHL games with four teams – Detroit, the New York Rangers, Boston and Philadelphia – in a career spanning 13 seasons. He has 215 goals and 214 assists (429 points), including career highs in goals (34), assists (31) and points (65) in 2005-06, his first season with the Flyers. He has 494 penalty minutes, 67 power-play goals, 29 game-winners and a career plus/minus rating of +62.

Born in Toronto, Knuble played high school hockey in Michigan and played four years for the University of Michigan in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA).
