The Ontario Hockey League (OHL) has named London Knights General Manager Mark Hunter as the winner of this year’s Jim Gregory award.

A release sent out by the league noted, the Knights overcame the tragic loss of friend and teammate Abakar Kazbekov in December of this past season, skating to a fourth consecutive Midwest Division title with a record of 45-21-2-0, surrendering a Western Conference-low 214 goals-against.

The Knights also won the Wayne Gretzky Trophy as Western Conference champions, doing so for the seventh time in franchise history.

The Knights finished the season with a 45-21-2 and zero record and falling just short in the OHL finals to Peterborough.

Hunter was selected as winner of the annual honour after he and runner-up Adam Dennis of the North Bay Battalion finished as front-runners in voting by OHL General Managers.

The final winner was decided upon by a committee consisting of media representatives from a market in each of the OHL's four divisions, a representative from NHL Central Scouting, as well as a representative from the Ontario Hockey League. Top Stories
