Harrington Named Knights' Captain


Ahead of raising their 2011-12 championship banners, the London Knights have announced their captain and alternates for 2012-13.  Fourth-year defenseman and Pittsburgh Penguins' first rounder, Scott Harrington will wear the "C" for London as the season opens Friday night at home to the Erie Otters.  Tommy Hughes, Olli Maata and Seth Griffith have all been named alternates.  The Knights will use three alternates for every game.  At times in the past, London has had rotating alternates for home and road games.

A ceremony will be held at noon on Friday at Talbot Street and Market Lane as the city of London officially unveils London Knights Way in honour of the team's overall success during the past decade.
