Although he’s not the captain of the London Knights (OHL) this season, Bruins prospect Jared Knight obviously has a leadership streak in him.

The 2010 second-round pick of Boston had a two-goal game, including the overtime winner, Sunday. And then he gave the London Free Press the type of quote every reporter dreams about.

“Screw everyone who thought we were done after the trade deadline. Of course, we use it as motivation. We’re a ­hard-working team. We never give up,” he said.

Knight’s Knights sit sixth in the Western Conference. His 48 points are first on the team, while his 19 goals are second on the squad.
