  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Nabs win in relief

    Knight stopped all 19 shots he faced to pick up the win after replacing the ineffective Sergei Bobrovsky in Thursday's 7-4 victory over Buffalo.

    Bobrovsky got the hook when Buffalo took a 4-1 lead 11:16 into the second period, and the move woke up Florida's offense, as the Panthers outscored Buffalo 6-0 during Knight's time in the cage. Knight improved to 6-3-1 with a 2.88 GAA and .908 save percentage, but he's still the clear No. 2 to Bobrovsky, who's 10-1-2 with a 2.38 GAA and .923 save percentage.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Stumbles against Seattle

    Knight stopped 23 of 26 shots in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kraken.

    Seattle's final goal was scored into an empty net. Knight didn't get a lot of help as he made only his second start since Nov. 9, and so far the 20-year-old hasn't been able to match his numbers from last year's dynamic NHL debut, posting a 3.03 GAA and .901 save percentage through 10 appearances this season.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Facing Kraken on Saturday

    Knight will start against visiting Seattle on Saturday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    Sergei Bobrovsky played Friday, so it'll be Knight's crease on the second half of the back-to-back set. Knight has been fantastic at home this season, posting a perfect 4-0-0 record with a .922 save percentage, and the Panthers overall are 11-0-0 in their own barn. Seattle, on the other hand, is 1-7-1 on the road, making this as good a matchup as any for the young netminder.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Makes brief relief appearance

    Knight stopped six of seven shots in relief during Friday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.

    Knight played just under 12 minutes in the second period after starter Sergei Bobrovsky was shaken up, allowing a goal to Washington superstar Alex Ovechkin. Knight is 5-2-0 on the year with a 2.98 GAA and .904 save percentage and would take over the bulk of the goaltending reigns if Bobrovsky has to miss any time.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Stops 45 to top Devils

    Knight set aside 45 of 46 shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Devils.

    The Panthers struggled to suppress shots without reigning Selke Trophy winner Aleksander Barkov (knee), but Knight covered for all their shortcomings. Dougie Hamilton opened the scoring against Knight in the first period, but the young stud shut the door from there while his teammates provided four goals in support. While Sergei Bobrovsky has secured the top job in Florida's net with a tremendous start, Knight has held his own when called upon and now sports a 5-2-1 record, making him a strong fantasy play any time he gets the starting nod.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Gets starting nod at home

    Knight will be between the pipes for Thursday's home game against the Devils.

    Knight's last two appearances were far from stellar as he gave up 10 goals on 48 shots (.792 save percentage), including giving up six to New Jersey on Nov. 9. The young netminder will no doubt be eager for some modicum of revenge and should benefit by playing at home. Even if he puts together a strong outing, the Connecticut native has been outplayed by veteran Sergei Bobrovsky to start the year and shouldn't be expected to take too many starts down the stretch outside of back-to-backs.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Things unravel in road loss

    Knight surrendered six goals on 30 shots in a 7-3 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.

    The 20-year-old was sitting on a 3-2 lead early in the second period, but the Devils erupted for five unanswered goals the rest of the way, four of those on Knight plus an empty-netter. It was the second straight loss for Knight, during which time he's give up 10 goals on just 48 shots (.792 save percentage). Knight will continue to carry the load in the absence of injured veteran Sergei Bobrovsky (upper body), but he's now allowed four-plus goals in three of his last four starts.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Starting Tuesday

    Knight will start against the Devils on Tuesday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Despite emerging victorious in two of his last three starts, Knight hasn't been great, allowing 10 goals on 79 shots during that span. Fortunately for fantasy managers, the Devils are second last in the Eastern Conference with an average of 2.50 goals for, so Knight should have a good shot at a win Tuesday.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Takes first regulation loss

    Knight allowed four goals on 18 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Rangers on Monday.

    The Rangers got to Knight for a pair of goals in each of the first two periods and hung on for the one-goal victory. It was Knight's first loss in regulation time this season, dropping him to 4-1-1 on the year with 2.78 GAA and .902 save percentage. The 20-year-old was making his third consecutive start in place of injured veteran Sergei Bobrovsky (upper body).

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Tending twine Monday

    Knight will defend the cage for Monday's road clash with the Rangers, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Knight will be making his third straight start with Sergei Bobrovsky (upper body) still dealing with an injury. On the year, the youngster Knight is 4-0-1 with a 2.52 GAA and .918 save percentage in five games. Once Bobrovsky is deemed fit, Knight figures to one again find himself relegated to the No. 2 role, though he could play his way into a few extra appearances throughout the year.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Picks up fourth win

    Knight made 30 saves in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Hurricanes.

    Both goals came in the second period, but Florida had already handed the 20-year-old netminder a 4-0 lead by that point. Knight has yet to suffer a regulation loss in the NHL, going 4-0-1 this season after a 4-0-0 mark in his debut last year, and with Sergei Bobrovsky (upper body) banged up, he could continue to see a lot of work in the short term.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Named starter Saturday

    Knight will start against visiting Carolina on Saturday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    With Sergei Bobrovsky still day-to-day with an upper-body injury, it'll be Knight tasked with taking on the perfect 9-0-0 Hurricanes. Despite emerging victorious in his last start Thursday against Washington, Knight was far from spectacular, allowing four goals on 29 shots. He'll have his work cut out for him against a Carolina squad that sits second in the NHL with an average of 4.11 goals for.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Gets OT win in relief

    Knight allowed four goals on 29 shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Capitals.

    Knight relieved an injured Sergei Bobrovsky (upper body) after the first intermission with the Panthers leading 2-0. Florida extended that lead to 4-1 later in the frame, but the Capitals rallied with three straight goals to send the game into overtime. Knight earned the relief win when Florida's Eetu Luostarinen struck 1:55 into the extra period. Bobrovsky is considered day-to-day, leaving Knight to take the lead between the pipes if he misses any game action.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Handed first regular-season loss

    Knight stopped 31 of 33 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to Boston on Saturday.

    Knight lost a 2-1 lead late in the third period when Charlie McAvoy scored on the power play with 6:25 remaining. Boston's Charlie Coyle beat Knight for the only goal in the shootout, giving the 20-year-old netminder his first setback in seven career regular-season starts (6-0-1). Still unbeaten in regulation, Knight owns a 2.01 GAA and .930 save percentage in his first three starts of 2021-22.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Starting in Beantown

    Knight will guard the road goal during Saturday's matchup with Boston, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.

    Knight wasn't great in his last start Monday against Arizona, surrendering three goals on just 21 shots, but he was still able to come away with his second win of the season thanks to strong goal support from his teammates. The 20-year-old goaltender will try to secure a third straight victory in a road matchup with a Bruins team that's lost back-to-back games.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Between pipes Monday

    Knight will tend the twine at home versus the Coyotes on Monday.

    Knight gave up just one goal on 31 shots in his previous appearance this season while securing a win over the Lightning. Thus far, it appears the Panthers are going to deploy Knight in every third game, in part to keep Sergei Bobrovsky well-rested while also ensuring the 20-year-old Knight plays often enough to avoid getting too rusty. At that pace, fantasy players should anticipate the Connecticut native playing between 25-30 games this year.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Earns win against Coyotes

    Knight stopped 18 of 21 shots Monday in a 5-3 win over Arizona.

    Knight was handed a 3-1 lead through 40 minutes and was able to earn the win despite Arizona making it interesting with two goals in a 34-second span in the third period. It was the second win in as many starts for the 20-year-old Knight, who has stopped 48 of 51 shots (.941 save percentage) in those two appearances. He boasts a .931 save percentage over his first six NHL starts and will continue to serve in the No. 2 role behind veteran Sergei Bobrovsky.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Sharp in win over Bolts

    Knight turned aside 30 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Lightning.

    He was brilliant in his season debut, taking a shutout into the third period until Brayden Point got a puck past him. Knight remains behind Sergei Bobrovsky on the depth chart for now, but if the veteran netminder struggles once again, the 20-year-old may be ready to handle a much more significant role for the Panthers.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: In goal Tuesday

    Knight will get the starting nod on the road versus the Lightning on Tuesday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    Knight will make his season debut for the Panthers after watching Sergei Bobrovsky start the first two games of the year. While Bobrovsky should still be considered the No. 1 for Florida, Knight will see more opportunities than just back-to-backs and could even play his way into an even split role.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Taking on Tampa Bay

    Knight will start between the pipes in Thursday's road preseason match versus the Lightning, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Although Knight will start Thursday night, Christopher Gibson will also get an opportunity to play at some point during the contest. If Sergei Bobrovsky struggles early on, the supremely talented Knight could emerge as the Panthers' No. 1 netminder sooner rather than later this season.
