2016 Mem Cup Champs

The London Knights are the Memorial Cup Champions, The AHL Calder Cup Finals begin, and the scouting combine begins and more in this week’s ramblings…

Let’s start with the at the Memorial Cup where Mitch Marner and his line with Christian Dvorak and Matthew Tkachuk were absolutely dominant scoring a combined 34 points in four games. Marner simply dominated the entire CHL all season winning just about anything he possibly could including major hardware such as MVP for the OHL, OHL playoffs, CHL and the Memorial Cup. The last player to achieve this was Brad Richards back in 2000.
