Florida Panthers blue-chip prospect Spencer Knight made his first NHL start Tuesday versus the Columbus Blue Jackets and made 33 stops in a 5-1 victory.

The Panthers drafted Knight 13th overall in 2019. The 20-year-old has spent the past two seasons at Boston College and posted a 16-4-1 record with a sparkling .932 save percentage in 2021.

Knight also anchored the United States to a gold medal at the world juniors in January.

Florida's win brought them to 65 points through 47 games this season.
