The London Knights have announced that the team has signed forward, Paul Cotter, to an OHL Standard Player’s Agreement.
Cotter, a native of Canton, Michigan, will report to the Knights after starting his season with Western Michigan University. As a fourth-round draft pick of the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Cotter scored 18 goals with a total of 39 points last season for the Lincoln Stars of the USHL.
“We are very proud to have signed Paul and we eagerly welcome him to London,” said London Knights General Manager, Mark Hunter. “Paul is an NHL level talent who will be a strong addition to our lineup for the remainder of the season. We look forward to his arrival in London and the excitement he will bring to Budweiser Gardens.”
The 1999 born forward will join a Knights team with several NHL draft picks already on the roster in Evan Bouchard (1st Round 2018, Edmonton Oilers), Adam Boqvist (1st Round 2018, Chicago Blackhawks), Liam Foudy (1st Round 2018, Columbus Blue Jackets), Alex Formenton (2nd Round 2017, Ottawa Senators), Alec Regula (3rd Round 2018, Detroit Red Wings), Jacob Golden (4th Round 2017, Minnesota Wild), and Jordan Kooy (7th Round, Vegas Golden Knights).
