Knights a little 'hot under the collar' with dressing room situation
The London Knights are not only dealing with problems on the ice, but in the dressing room as well.
The Knights arel looking to rebound from Monday's loss with a win Tuesday against Halifax at the Memorial Cup.
In addition to the top caliber competition, the Knights are having to overcome another hurdle, their cramped dressing room.
When the team arrived at the Credit Union Centre, the equipment staff of Dean Patterson, Bob Martin and Chris Maton have transformed it into a work of art.
"It was basically just an empty room with a shelf, we're at the big show here, we are coping with what we have," says Maton.
The rooms are so small that the players who are scratched are forced to stay in the extra room next door.
It is so cramped that they have had to put fans in the room and in the hall to get as much air circulating as possible.
"It's maybe not as hot as Shawinigan, but hallways are hot, dressing rooms are warm, we have big fans blowing on the guys," says Maton.
"It is really hot in here. I will be sweating on bench, not even playing, it's kinda hot," says Olli Maata.
