Legendary London Knights
The London Knights have developed alot of legendary players, here’s some of the best ever to don the green and white.Darryl Sittler, who played for the original London Knights went on to a hall of fame career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and short stints with Philadelphia and Detroit, scoring 484 goals and 1121 points in 1096 games, including a ten point night against the Boston Bruins.
Another former Leafs captain, defenseman Rob Ramage, enjoyed three seasons for the London Knights, including a couple point per game seasons.
Should be hall of famer Dino Cicarelli played a few seasons in London, scoring 72 goals one year, went on to a 600 goal nhl career, and really should be in the hockey hall of fame.
Not a huge NHL star, but a fan favorite, Basil McRae played in London before becomming an NHL journeyman.
Future hall of famer and Olympic gold medalist Brendan Shanahan enjoyed a few years in the green and white, and went on to be a consistant 30 goal scorer in New Jersey, St Louis, Hartford, and Detroit.
Jason Allison, currently of the Leafs, enjoyed a few stellar years in London, including a 142 point season… he got 4 tonight, but really, does anyone think he can do that in the NHL?
Hard to say if he’s a future hall of famer yet, but last years goal scoring champion Rick Nash played for the Knights, and enjoyed enough success to get drafted 1st overall..
And who else? Corey Perry is impressing early in his career with the Ducks, he was the OHLs scoring champion with the Knights, and went a span of a little over six months without playing in a loss, including the WJHC.
The Knights are one hell of a team, with one hell of a groupe of player.
Sittler… by far…
