When the Florida Panthers made Spencer Knight their top pick of the 2019 NHL Draft it definitely raised some eyebrows.
With Florida hot on the tail of free agent netminder Sergei Bobrovsky, did the drafting of Knight mean the Panthers were no longer interested in Bobrovsky?
They most definitely were.
Days after drafting Knight, the Panthers signed Bobrovsky to the richest contract in franchise history, a seven-year deal worth $70 million.
Soon, Knight and Bobrovsky will become teammates.
