London, Ontario: An Exciting Destination for Hockey Fanatics

London, Ontario: An Exciting Destination for Hockey Fanatics

 

Fans of the National Hockey League — and hockey in general — have an outstanding reason to pay a visit to nearby London, Ontario ... and that would be to experience the London Knights in action! 

The London Knights Hockey Club formed in 1965 as a Junior “A” franchise. They were known then as the London Nationals, an Ontario Hockey Association (OHL) affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs. This relationship ended in 1968 when the National Hockey League ended direct sponsorship of junior teams.
