Playing career[edit]

Knackstedt entered the major junior ranks with the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League (WHL) in 2004–05. Three seasons later, in his draft year, he was traded to the Moose Jaw Warriors and put up 56 points between the two teams. He was then drafted in the 7th round, 189th overall, by the Boston Bruins in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Returning to the Warriors, Knackstedt recorded a team-leading 85 points, seventh overall in league scoring.[1] At the end of the WHL season, he was assigned by Boston to complete 2007–08 with the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League (AHL).

On December 9, 2010, he was traded along with Jeff LoVecchio to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Sean Zimmerman and a conditional 7th round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.[2]

Knackstedt signed a one-year contract with Bolzano-Bozen Foxes (HC Bolzano) as a free agent on 2011.[3]

After a successful season with the Condors, Knackstedt opted to resume a European career in signing a one-year deal with Rubin Tyumen of the Russian second league the VHL, on August 6, 2014.[5]
