Observations:

December 2015 – Knight has made quite an impression since his recent call-up to the NHL Florida Panthers. Through five games played since his December call-up, Knight has three points while skating an average of only ten minutes per game. Prior to his fifth game where he only won one face-off, he had been averaging almost eight wins per game in the circle. His production may force the Panthers to expand his opportunity of ice-time in the near future with with his scoring rate in such a limited capacity, although once the Panthers are fully healthy that opportunity may not last very long this season for Knight. – Lee Rayson

 

March 2015 – Knight has been a bright spot for the San Antonio Rampage since his acquisition earlier this season.  He has produced a modest 11 points in 18 games with his new team.  He scored a goal and added an assist in his most recent game on March 5th versus Chicago. Lee Rayson

 

January 2015 – The Calgary Flames have traded Corban Knight to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Drew Shore.  Knight was originally a draft pick of the Panthers in 2009, and is currently in his second professional season.  He had a successful rookie campaign in the AHL last year scoring 18 goals and 27 assists for 45 points in 70 games.  He showed he also plays with a bit of an edge with his 50 PIMs.  At the time of the trade, he had eight goals and four assists totalling 12 points in 22 games with the AHL Flames.  It is expected that he is headed to Florida's AHL affiliate the San Antonio Rampage. Lee Rayson

 

May 2014 – Knight is a spark-plug. He is skating from the time he steps on the ice till he hits the bench. A work-horse some would say. He turned in 45 points in 70 games and was a plus-11 for the Heat in his first season as a pro. He also suited up for seven games for the Flames scoring his first NHL goal in the stint. Knight will battle for a third line center spot on the big club when camp starts up and depending where the chips fall he could see some time in the NHL. I feel it is a little early yet to say he will stick full time but once he has another se
