Knight, 19, was drafted 13th overall in 2019 by the Panthers, the highest-drafted goalie in his class.
He backstopped the United States to a gold medal at the 2021 World Junior Hockey Championship, recording an outstanding .941 save percentage and 1.63 goals-against-average. He also started for the Americans at the 2020 world juniors and served as the third goalie in 2019.
The Darien, Conn., native will leave Boston College, where he played as a member of the Eagles for two seasons and earned Hockey East Player of the Year honours. The signing comes three days after the Eagles were eliminated from the 2021 Division I Men's Hockey Championship.
