The Florida Panthers signed goaltender Spencer Knight to a three-year contract extension on Tuesday. 

The deal, which begins in 2023-2024, is worth $4.5 million annually, according to Sportsnet.

“Spencer is a phenomenal goaltender, as well as being an exceptional athlete and person, said the general manager Bill Zito in a statement released by the Panthers. He has made leaps and bounds in his career by focusing on his development over the past two seasons with our organization. With this contract extension, we are excited about the present and the future of goaltenders with the Panthers.”
