A London tradition returns to the downtown core Friday night.
The London Knights will kick off the OHL pre-season, facing off against the Sarnia Sting at Budweiser Gardens.
The puck drops at 7:30 p.m., and you can buy tickets starting at $21 here.
The Knights have been in training camp since Tuesday.
“In the scrimmages it’s been pretty skilled hockey,” said London Knights General Manager Rob Simpson.
“A lot of guys with a lot of pace and a lot of speed, and after winning the Memorial Cup last year that’s what we like, because you see how fast and how skilled you have to be to make plays.”
The last time the Knights were seen on the ice, they were celebrating their second Memorial Cup title in Red Deer, Alberta.
The Knights also won their third OHL title last year in the past five years.
The OHL regular season starts September 21st in Sarnia, followed by the home-opener on September 23rd. You can hear that game on AM980 with Mike Stubbs doing the play-by-play.
