Panthers' Spencer Knight: Takes loss in elimination game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight made 20 saves on 23 shots in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Lightning in Game 6. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

Knight suffered his first loss in six career games, and it was due to a lack of goal support as the Panthers' usually lively offense fell flat on the road. The 20-year-old goalie gave up 12 goals in his six games between the regular season and playoffs. With Chris Driedger expected to be allowed to walk as a free agent, Knight has a good chance of opening next year as backup Sergei Bobrovsky in a worst-case scenario.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Officially named Game 6 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight, as expected, will tend the twine for Wednesday's Game 6 road clash with Tampa Bay.

Knight stopped 36 of 37 shots faced in Game 5 to stave off elimination, marking the fifth straight win of his young NHL career. With the 20-year-old netminder performing at such an elite level, Sergei Bobrovsky finds himself watching from the bench in what could set up quite the goalie controversy heading into the 2021-22 campaign. At this point, with the Panthers needing to win both Game 6 and 7 to get past the Lightning, it will likely be Knight-or-bust moving forward.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Expected to start Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight is expected to get the starting nod for Wednesday's Game 6 showdown in Tampa Bay, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

Head coach Joel Quenneville wouldn't confirm Knight as the starter for Wednesday but it was strongly hinted at after the Game 5 win. He was terrific in his postseason debut Monday, stopping 36 straight shots after allowing a goal in the first minute of the 4-1 victory. The 20-year-old has yet to lose in the regular season or playoffs.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Stellar in first postseason contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight allowed one goal on 37 shots in Monday's 4-1 win over the Lightning in Game 5.

Knight gave up a goal to Ross Colton on the Lightning's first shot. After that, the 20-year-old goalie stopped 36 straight shots to help keep Florida's season going. The first-round pick from 2019 pulled off a fairly strong result, something the Panthers have lacked from both Sergei Bobrovsky and Chris Driedger so far. Don't be surprised if Knight gets the starting nod again in Tampa for Wednesday's Game 6.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Making postseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight will get the starting nod for Monday's Game 5 matchup at home against the Lightning, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

Knight was impressive in a small sample size this season, registering a 2.32 GAA and a .919 save percentage while earning a win in each of his four appearances. The 20-year-old rookie is tasked with forcing a Game 6 with the Panthers in a 3-1 series hole. It will be Knight's first matchup against the lethal Tampa Bay offense.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Hangs on to win again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight saved 25 of 29 shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars.

The 20-year-old netminder remains undefeated through his first four starts, with Knight's GAA and save percentage holding strong at 2.32 and .919, respectively. Knight has been a pleasant surprise as a stop-gap option in place of the injured Chris Driedger (lower body), but Philippe Desrosiers could also get a look in the team's final two regular-season contests.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: In net Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight will start Monday's game against the Stars, David Dwork of WPLG Local 10 South Florida reports.

Knight will be backed up by Philippe Desrosiers with Sergei Bobrovsky getting the night off to rest. The 13th overall selection in the 2019 draft has started his career with a 3-0-0 record, 1.67 GAA and .943 save percentage.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Earns third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight allowed three goals on 27 shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

Knight made his second NHL start and third appearance. He let in a late equalizer to Alex DeBrincat in the third period, but Sam Bennett's game-winner in overtime gave Knight his third win. The 20-year-old goalie has allowed four goals on 70 shots to begin his NHL career in solid form. As long as Chris Driedger (lower body) is sidelined, Knight should be the primary backup to Sergei Bobrovsky.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Starting in Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight will defend the blue paint during Thursday's road game versus the Blackhawks, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

Knight was fantastic in his NHL debut April 20 against the Blue Jackets, turning aside 33 of 34 shots en route to a 5-1 win. The 20-year-old rookie will attempt to secure his third career NHL victory in a road matchup with a struggling Chicago club that's lost three of its last four games.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Collects win in relief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight stopped all nine shots he faced in relief of Sergei Bobrovsky in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Predators.

Knight played sharply in the third period, and the Panthers rallied with four goals for the comeback win. Knight has won both of his appearances so far, allowing just one goal on 43 shots to begin his NHL career. With Chris Driedger (lower body) out for a week, Knight will likely serve as Bobrovsky's backup in the near term.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Sharp in first NHL win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight made 33 saves in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

The 20-year-old got plenty of offensive support in his NHL debut, and after getting beaten late in the first period by Jack Roslovic, Knight shut Columbus down the rest of the way. The 13th overall pick in the 2019 draft likely won't see too much more work down the stretch behind Sergei Bobrovsky and Chris Driedger barring an injury, but Knight's future is extremely bright.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Making first NHL start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight will make his first NHL start in Tuesday's home game versus the Blue Jackets, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

Knight was fantastic for Boston College this season, going 16-4-1 while posting an impressive .932 save percentage and 2.18 GAA in 21 appearances. The 13th overall pick from the 2019 NHL Entry Draft will attempt to secure his first NHL win in a home matchup with a struggling Columbus club that's lost six straight games.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Could start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers head coach Joel Quenneville said there's a "good chance" that Knight will make his NHL debut Tuesday at home against Columbus, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Knight has been considered one of the game's premier goaltending prospects since he was drafted 13th overall in 2019. The 20-year-old played two terrific seasons with Boston College before landing an entry-level contract at the end of March. A matchup against a Columbus squad that scores the fourth-fewest goals per game in the NHL could be a great start to Knight's NHL career.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Set for backup duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight was recalled to the active roster and will serve as Sergei Bobrovsky's backup for Monday's game against Columbus, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

Monday will be the first time Knight has dressed for an NHL game, and it coincides with his 20th birthday. The 2019 first-round pick could make his NHL debut at some point this season after recording a .932 save percentage and 2.18 GAA in 21 games during his sophomore year with Boston College.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Dropped to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight was reassigned to the taxi squad Saturday, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.

Barring an injury or two, it doesn't seem like Knight will see any NHL action just yet. The 19-year-old Boston College product could head to AHL Syracuse soon to make his professional hockey debut.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight was promoted to the active roster Thursday.

Chris Driedger has already been named the starter for Thursday's road game versus the Hurricanes. There's a chance Knight will serve as the backup instead of Sergei Bobrovsky, though David Dwork of Local 10 Miami suggests that the Panthers are simply giving the 19-year-old Knight a chance to get a feel for the NHL game-day routine.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Placed on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight was assigned to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

This is likely a paper move for the newly signed goalie. Knight signed his three-year, entry-level contract Wednesday. He's not expected to see much playing time in the NHL this season, as Sergei Bobrovsky and Chris Driedger are locked in as the top two goalies. Knight went 16-4-1 with a 2.18 GAA and a .932 save percentage at Boston College.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Signs entry-level contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Panthers on Wednesday.

The Panthers selected Knight with the 13th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. The 19-year-old netminder recently finished his sophomore season at Boston College, during which he compiled a 16-4-1 record while posting an admirable 2.18 GAA and .932 save percentage. Knight is Florida's goaltender of the future, but he'll likely spend at least a year or two learning behind Sergei Bobrovsky, who is under contract with the Panthers through 2025-26.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Takes home World Junior gold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight shut out Team Canada 2-0 on Tuesday, as Team USA won gold at the IIHF World Junior Championship. He made 34 saves.

Knight was a brick wall for most of the tournament, pitching three shutouts while recording a dazzling .939 save percentage and 1.63 GAA through seven appearances. As evidenced by his dominant play both at Boston College and the World Juniors, the 2019 No. 13 overall pick by the Panthers has an incredibly bright future ahead of him.

Panthers' Spencer Knight: Dominating at Boston College
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knight stopped all 36 shots he faced in Boston College's 9-0 shutout of Providence on Saturday.

Knight is up to his old tricks again, sporting a perfect 4-0-0 record along with a 1.50 GAA and .955 save percentage thus far in the early going. The No. 13 overall selection in the 2019 draft by the Panthers, Knight is off to Edmonton where he will backstop Team USA at the 2021 World Junior Championship. Any hopes the Americans have of winning the tournament rest solely on the wide shoulders of the 19-year-old Connecticut native.
