OHL Champion London Knights Might Be Unstoppable

|

The OHL Final came to a close Wednesday night in St. Catharines as the London Knights scraped out a 1-0 victory over the Niagara IceDogs.

The play of this London team has been nothing short of dominant for weeks now, and truly put themselves among the best OHL teams of all time this month. Now, as they prepare for the Memorial Cup in a week in Red Deer, Alberta, the OHL Champion London Knights look like they might just be unstoppable. READ MORE

The sights must be set now on that series, but thoughts of the opportunity that lies beyond it are creeping into the minds of players. The last time they won the OHL Western Conference Final, they lost in the semi-final of the Memorial Cup - a trophy they haven't won since 2005. It may be premature to call the Knights favourites if they do make it through Niagara, but they'd certainly be heavyweight contenders after this performance. READ MORE
