2023 Fantasy Outlook
Knight had a chance to claim the starting role in 2022-23, but he ended up going 9-8-3 with a 3.18 GAA and a .901 save percentage over 21 games. He ended the year in the player assistance program, and after the Panthers rallied to the Stanley Cup Finals without him, it's fair to question if his "goalie of the future" status is still present. Florida signed Anthony Stolarz in free agency, giving the team a more experienced and steady backup to pair with Sergei Bobrovsky in 2023-24, so it's probably safe to assume Knight will begin the year in the AHL barring a stellar training camp.

Called up from minors

May 2, 2024
Knight was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Thursday, George Richards of Florida Hockey Now reports.
ANALYSIS
Knight has spent the entire 2023-24 campaign in the minors with the Checkers, logging action in 45 regular-season contests in which he posted a 25-14-5 record and .905 save percentage. Even with his promotion, Knight shouldn't be expected to get into any games, primarily serving as an emergency option behind Sergei Bobrovsky and Anthony Stolarz.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Projected to be back for camp
GFlorida Panthers
June 22, 2023
Knight, who is in the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program, is expected to be back for training camp, George Richards of Florida Hockey Now reports.
ANALYSIS
Knight had a 3.18 GAA and a .901 save percentage in 21 contests with Florida in 2022-23. He didn't perform as hoped last season, but the 22-year-old goaltender is still a big part of the Panthers' future plans. Knight will start a three-year, $13.5 million contract next season and is projected to open the campaign as Sergei Bobrovsky's understudy.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
Those hoping Knight would be able to steal the No. 1 job from incumbent Sergei Bobrovsky came away disappointed last year. Knight, No. 13 overall pick from the 2019 draft, played 32 games in his age-20 rookie campaign in 2021-22, posting a 19-9-3 record, a 2.79 GAA and a .908 save percentage. The Panthers have a new coach in Paul Maurice, and it's possible he could view things differently than the combination of coaches Andrew Brunette and Joel Quenneville did a season ago, but the more likely scenario is that Florida deploys its top-two goaltenders in a similar fashion in 2022-23, which would severely hamper Knight's fantasy value. Of course, he's also a potential league-winner should anything happen to Bobrovsky. Knight has considerably more value in keeper/dynasty formats than redraft leagues.
One of the most decorated goaltending prospects in recent memory, Knight stepped right off the Boston College campus into the Florida lineup in mid-April. All told, Knight appeared in six games for the Panthers, including a pair of playoff contests. His numbers were exceptional (5-1-0, 2.23 GAA, .925 save percentage) and it's easy to see why Knight is held in such high esteem among NHL talent evaluators. Chris Driedger was claimed by Seattle in the expansion draft, leaving Knight and the pricey Sergei Bobrovsky as Florida's goaltending duo heading into the 2021-22 campaign. Knight would be the clear frontrunner for playing time if all things were equal, but they aren't. Keep an eye on this competition because Knight would be a legitimate No. 1 fantasy netminder if he can wrestle the job away from Bobrovsky.
