With star alumni and the Memorial Cup in attendance, the Knights didn’t get intimidated by the bright lights.
Tonight was the celebration of the 2004-2005 championship squad, and their selection as “CHL Team of the Century”.
Alumni such as Brandon Prust and Cory Perry were in attendance, as well as many other players and coaching staff.
They got a chance for front row seats to another Knights win.
Five different Knights scored goals as the Knights cruised to a 7-4 victory over the Mississauga Steelheads
The Steelheads got one in in less than a minute into the game, but it was all London from there on out.
Goalie Joseph Raaymakers was stellar, and made a couple beauty saves, including one on an Alan Lyszczarczyk penalty shot late in the game.
Raaymakers says that the team has seen much growth in this recent stretch of wins,
“I think everyone has grown, everyone’s getting up for games.”
Adam Boqvist picked up three points in the win, as well as two goals. He says the Knights can’t get too confident right now,
“We can’t step down now, I think we can play better. They had a goal in the first bit so overall we need to play better.”
Another big goal of the night belonged to new Knight Paul Cotter, who picked up his first ever OHL goal.
The Knights improve to 16-4-2 on the season and have made it ten wins in a row.
They welcome rival Owen Sound to Budweiser Gardens Friday night.
