The Knights would like to announce that they have come to a tender agreement with Dorian Dawson.
Dorian Dawson is a defenseman from Barrie, Ontario, Canada. The Canada native is a 1997 birth year blueliner who tips the scales at 6-foot tall, 180-pounds. He played for the Gloucester Rangers of the Central Canada Hockey League – Junior A. In 48 games played for the Rangers, Dawson put up 5 goals and 10 assists.
“Signing the tender has really motivated me even more to get ready for the season,” replied Dawson when asked about the agreement. “I really want to come into the season and establish myself as a quality player in the NAHL, but most importantly, I want to help the Knights win a championship. I know the high caliber of play of the NAHL, so I understand the need to play and train at a high level night in and night out. Given that the Knights are the newest NAHL team, I would like to use my past junior hockey experiences to help provide leadership and hopefully be part of something special. I can’t wait to get things rolling come August!”
The tender agreement with Dorian Dawson makes it the second Canadian to commit to the Knights NAHL team. Dawson will be joining another Canadian defenseman Nick Criminisi on the Knights back end.
The Knights are working incredibly hard to be a premier NAHL team on the eastern end of the United States. The NAHL draft is quickly approaching and the first ever tryout camp for the team will be held June 5-7. Spots are limited and filling fast, so please sign up by clicking here.
