The London Knights are proud to partner with Teachers Life and the Ontario Hockey League for the Academic Spotlight Series. Our first spotlight in the series highlights fourth year forward, Billy Moskal. Billy has always been highly academic, winning awards in both grades 9 and 10 before starting his OHL career with the London Knights. Upon joining the team Billy won the Midwest division Academic Player of the Month Award through the OHL in October of 2017. During the 2019-2020 season Billy was named the London Knights Academic Player of the Year and was a finalist for the OHL’s Roger Neilsen award for the league’s top post-secondary student. Billy is currently enrolled at King’s College focusing on e-commerce and business.
