London Knights to Practice in Blyth
The details are in - OHL London Knights will be holding a practice at the Blyth & District Community Centre on Wednesday, November 9th, with an opportunity for fans to obtain autographs.

The Knights are to arrive at Blyth arena at 4:00 PM. Practise will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 PM, with an opportunity for autographs with all players between 6:00 and 6:30 PM.  Admission to the practice will be by donation and is open to all Blyth Brussels Minor Hockey members and the public.

All London Knights players will be in attendance as well as Dale Hunter (President and Head Coach of London Knights & Former Captain of Washington Capitals), Dylan Hunter (Assistant Coach and member of the London Knights 2005 Memorial Cup Championship team ), Misha Donskov (Assistant General Manager & Assistant Coach and worked with the Atlanta Thrashers and Columbus Blue Jackets), and Rob Ramage (Hockey Operations Consultant & Stanley Cup Champion with Calgary and Montreal).

The coaches for the Knights will be wearing microphones so everyone can hear the drills and the reason behind them.  For all Blyth Brussels coaches, the Knights have put together a coaches package to take home at the end of the event.

Perhaps if we show the Knights the same enthusiasm we did last Friday at their game, they may want to make Blyth an annual visit in their season. I suggest getting to the arena early on the 9th as it may be a full house and who knows... maybe there might be a visit from both Domi's...

The timing is a little bit earlier in the day for some than had been hoped for, but the players are used to a 2:30 PM practice and still have school work to do in the evening.  It is awesome that they are taking time out of their busy schedules, so let's pack the place to show them how much we appreciate it all!!
