The Scouting Report
After winning back-to-back Ontario Hockey League titles in 2012 and 2013, as well as hosting the 2014 Mastercard Memorial Cup last year, the Knights return to the rink in 2015 after last season’s 49-14 record. Despite falling short in the postseason to the eventual-champion Guelph Storm, the Knights further solidified themselves amongst the OHL’s elite squads. On the first two Fridays of September, the Knights will return to Budweiser Gardens for a pair of exhibition games on the arena’s freshly sprouted ice. They’ll also be celebrating the start of their 50th anniversary season, marking a half-century’s worth of exciting hockey in London.
“Nats now Knights, colors green and gold.” That was the headline in the London Free Press on Wednesday, September 18, 1968, when the London Nationals officially became the London Knights. Four decades of highs and lows followed without a championship, but the drought ended in 2005.
That year, instead of celebrating their 40th anniversary by covering the locker room floor in rose pedals, the Knights set a franchise record with 120 points and claimed their first-ever Robertson Cup as champions of the OHL. The accomplishment earned the Knights an appearance in the Memorial Cup tournament, a tournament they were already hosting, from which they emerged as the CHL’s top team. Ever since, the Knights have been an annual force in the league’s Western Conference, and added more hardware to their trophy case with back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013.
