The London Knights were looking a bit shifty today completing 3 separate moves.
London Knights exchange their 3rd round 2024 OHL priority pick, in return for William Lochead from the Niagara Ice Dogs.
Lochead had a quiet few seasons, only racking 23 points over the past 3 seasons.
Lochead is native to London and will be the teams third over-ager on the team roster.
“We are very excited to welcome William to London…As a player with local roots, growing up in London, we are proud to be able to have this young man on our roster for the upcoming season” ~Mark Hunter, London Knights GM

Knights and Firebirds form a deal: London takes Conditional 3rd Round OHL Priority Selection, Flint takes Lucas Rowe.
Lucas Rowe played in only 1 OHL game last year. The Knights General Manager, Mark Hunter, wished Lucas luck in Flint. He thanks Rowe “We would like to thank Lucas for the time he spent in London.”

London Knights Wave off Kolyachonok.
Vladislav was selected in the second round of the 2018 CHL Import Draft.
Playing only 1 game with the Knights so far this year he recorded an assist in that showing.
The Belarusian Defender had to be waived unfortunately due to CHL rules that state any roster is only allowed two import players. Acquiring Adam Boqvist from the Chicago Blackhawks recently and the signing of Matvey Guskov the team needed to waive one of the three skaters.
“It is unfortunate to have to waive Vladislav as he is a great young man on and off the ice” ~Mark Hunter, London Knights GM
