The Calgary Flames have acquired the rights to Corban Knight from the Florida Panthers in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.
Knight’s contract is a lock to be a two-year deal because of his age and he will be able to sign in July.
Prospect writer Corey Pronman stated earlier today that Knight will immediately become one of the top three players in Calgary’s system.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie said the battle for Knight came down to Calgary and Edmonton. Knight is an Alberta native.
Calgary general manager Jay Feaster seems to believe that Knight will be playing in the NHL pretty quick. He was quoted as saying, “(We) look forward to his debut in a Flames sweater this fall.”
