KNIGHTS EXTEND HISTORIC STREAK IN 2022 NHL DRAFT

JULY 7, 2022 – The London Knights extended their CHL longest streak of 53 consecutive years of having at least one player selected in the NHL Draft, dating back to 1969.

Three Knights heard their name called at the 2022 NHL Draft in Montreal, Isaiah George, Landon Sim, and Jackson Edward were the newest Knights to be selected into an NHL organization.

Isaiah George became the newest member of the New York Islanders when he was drafted at the beginning of round four, 98th overall. George, a 4th round selection of the Knights in the 2020 OHL Priority Selection was a staple on the Knights blueline in the 2021-22 season, filling big minutes admist the absence of key members to the Knights defence. George’s mobility, vision, and athleticism on the back end was something that scouts raved on.

Landon Sim became the 190th London Knight to be selected from the Knights in NHL Draft history. Sim was selected 194th overall by the St. Louis Blues. Sim was a 3rd round pick from the Knights in the 2020 OHL Priority Selection, recording 15 goals in his rookie season in the OHL. Sim’s father and longtime OHLer, Jon Sim is a member of the Blues organization as an amateur scout.

Jackson Edward joined the notorious hard hitting Boston Bruins at 200th overall. Edward fits the menacing and physical style of the Bruins making him a solid fit for the Bruins. Edward was the Knights 2nd round selection in the 2020 OHL Draft. Edward, much like George was called on to fill big minutes this past season and made his presence known on each shift with his size and physicality.

The three selections also extend the Knights record lead of 191 selections in NHL Draft history as the most in the world, proving the track record of excellence of the London Knights.

All three players will now look to their respective development camps before Knights training camp kicks off late next month.
