The Florida Panthers will have rookie Spencer Knight in goal Thursday night when they visit the Chicago Blackhawks in a nationally-televised game on NBCSN.

Coach Joel Quenneville confirmed the move after Thursday’s morning skate at United Center saying the 20-year-old goalie earned it after a strong first start and nice job in relief Tuesday.
