Spencer Knight: ‘I need to prove myself’ with Florida Panthers
A good indication rookie goalie Spencer Knight is preparing to be part of the Florida Panthers when the season opens in October is that he already has a place in Fort Lauderdale.
Still, Knight said on Monday after another development camp workout that his mindset is to keep working toward that goal.
“I want to consistently build and that’s part of my mindset,’’ Knight said Monday afternoon. “I’ve never really made the team until I’m on the team. When I’m there, I still have to stay there, you know?”
The Panthers are expected to go into the 2021-22 NHL season with a goalie tandem of Sergei Bobrovsky and Knight with Sam Montembeault starting the season with AHL Charlotte.
Right now, however, Knight says he is just taking things as they come.
