Right-winger Paul Knox made it to the NHL for one game with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1954-55. He was a solid amateur player in the OHA, at university, and internationally on behalf of Canada.
The Toronto native scored 73 goals in three full seasons of junior with the St. Michael's Majors. He then moved on to study at the University of Toronto where he starred on the varsity team and caused quite a stir when he made it to the NHL for a day.
In 1955-56, Knox excelled for the senior Kitchener Dutchmen who were the Allan Cup holders. Their triumph of the previous season meant they were to represent Canada at the 1956 Cortina d'Ampezzo Olympics. Knox was a key reason behind Canada winning the bronze medal as he scored 14 points in eight games to finish second on the team. After the Olympics, he played three more years of senior hockey before retiring in 1959.
