Florida Panthers top prospect Spencer Knight posted his second shutout in a row as Boston College blasted Providence 9-0 on home ice on Saturday.

After blanking the Friars 3-0 on Friday, the sophomore goaltender stopped a season-high 36 shots for the undefeated Eagles.

The 13th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft is now 4-0 with a 1.50 GAA and .955 save percentage. Knight has stopped 126 of the 132 shots he has faced this season.

Senior Logan Hutsko, a third-rounder in 2018, scored his first goal of the campaign to put Boston College up 6-0 32 seconds into the third period.

Hutsko also drew the primary assist on Marc McLaughlin’s shorthanded goal at 10:32 of the first period and Nikita Nesterenko’s even strength goal 4:26 into the middle frame.

The 21-year-old finished the game with four shots on goal and +4 rating. He took a hooking minor in the first period.

Hutsko has produced seven points (1G/6A) and is +8 in four games for the Eagles.

In Friday action from Austria’s ICE Hockey League, Justin Schutz registered two shots on goal and an even rating in EC Red Bull Salzberg’s 4-3 shootout win over the Graz 99ers.

Schutz, asixth ound selection in 2018, is still looking for his first goal of the season. He has six assists in 13 games for Red Bull.
