Congratulations to the London Knights:
Winners of the Memorial Cup

The London Knights won the Canadian Hockey League championship series to win the Memorial Cup with a 4-0 victory over the Rimouski Oceanic.

LONDON, Ont. (CP) - The London Knights were ranked No. 1 in the Canadian Hockey League all season, and they finished in that position by winning the Memorial Cup with a 4-0 victory over the Rimouski Oceanic on Sunday.

The Knights, both the host team and the Ontario Hockey League champions, won the franchise's first Memorial Cup in its 40-year history.

They did it with balanced, hard-working and talented squad that concluded a record-setting campiagn [sic] by shutting down the highest-scoring major junior team in the country.
The London Knights earlier this season had a 31-game undefeated streak, which likely would have been even longer had several of their players not been away, helping the Canadian junior team win the World Junior Championship.

What impressed Ms. Eclectic and me, in addition to the phenomenal talent and balance of the London Knights, was the patience of the players and their unwillingness to retaliate when Rimouski players hit them with cheap shots.

It was very impressive hockey by a very impressive team.
