Knight (6-foot-3, 192 pounds) is 5-2-1 with a 2. 98 goals-against average and. 904 save percentage in eight games (seven starts). It hasn’t always been smooth, however. When Sergei Bobrovsky was out for two games with an upper-body injury, Knight struggled starting both ends of back-to-back games for the first time, allowing 10 goals on 48 shots in losses at the New york Rangers and New jersey Devils on Nov. 8-9. But the No. 13 pick in the 2019 NHL Draft rebounded in his next start, making an NHL career-high 45 saves in a 4-1 win against the Devils on Nov. 18; it also was the most saves in a game by a Panthers rookie (Jacob Markstrom, 44 saves, March 21, 2013).
Knight was 4-0-0 with a 2. 32 GAA and. 919 save percentage in four regular season games and 1-1 with a. 933 save percentage in two Stanley Cup Playoff games last season.
Nedeljkovic (6-0, 203) leads NHL rookies this season in shots faced (360) and saves (329), and is tied for third in wins (four). In 12 games (10 starts) he has a 2. 83 GAA and. 914 save percentage. Nedeljkovic was third in voting for the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year last season after he went 15-5-3 with a 1. 90 goals-against average,. 932 save percentage and three shutouts in 23 games for the Carolina Hurricanes. The Hurricanes traded him to the Red Wings for goalie Jonathan Bernier and a third-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft on July 22.
One of Nedeljkovic’s strengths is his puck-handling ability.
Vladar (6-5, 185) has become a solid complement to starter Jacob Markstrom in his first season with the Flames, going 4-0-1 with a 1. 57 GAA,. 945 save percentage and two shutouts in five games. The 24-year-old leads rookie NHL goalies with a. 949 even-strength save percentage. Calgary acquired Vladar in a trade with the Boston Bruins for a third-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft on July 28.
