After playing only two games with the St. Michael’s Majors of the Ontario Hockey Association’s junior league during the 1950-1951 season, forward Paul Knox made a quick name for himself in the Canadian ice hockey scene when he scored 73 goals in his next three years with the team. He then entered the University of Toronto and joined their hockey team, the Varsity Blues, for the 1954-1955 season and once again proved his ability to score points by ending year as second in league scoring. Perhaps more notably, however, he caused a stir during this time by suiting up for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League for one game, although he did not score any goals. The following season he joined the Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen of the Ontario Hockey Association’s senior league who, by virtue of having won the previous year’s Allan Cup, were selected to represent Canada at the 1956 Winter Olympics. At the tournament he played in eight games, scored seven goals, and took home a bronze medal. He stayed with the Dutchmen for one more full season in 1956-1957, playing in fifty-two regular and six playoff matches, and then began playing less frequently with them through 1959, at which point he retired from ice skating for good.
