The Rochester Knighthawks have announced that goaltender Evan Kirk will miss the rest of the 2021-22 season. He has been placed on the holdout list.

According to the team, it will miss the rest of the season due to his primary job.

“Evan, unfortunately, has a work commitment that will prevent him from competing with us for the remainder of the current season,” Knighthawks General Manager and Vice President of Lacrosse Operations Dan Carey said. “We thank Evan for his contributions to the Knighthawks this season and hope to see him return to the organization at a time when he is able to do so.”

Kirk has played in two games for the team this season. He was the starter in the two contests against the New York Riptide and the Buffalo Bandits.

He is 1-1 on the season. Kirk has a 11.56 goals against average and a .787 save percentage in the two games that he played in.

The Knighthawks will have to make a corresponding move to add a goaltender to their roster. Ryan Hartley is the lone goaltender left on the roster.

Hartley has only seen action in two minutes this season. In the two minutes, Hartley has not allowed a single goal.

The Knighthawks do have Joel Watson on their practice squad. At this time, it is unclear if the team will go with Hartley and Watson or pursue other alternatives.
