London Knights to Participate in 2019 CHL Import Draft
The London Knights will be taking part in the 2019 CHL Import Draft. The draft will take place at 11:00am on Thursday, June 27, 2019.
The Knights will have one pick in tomorrow's draft. London will select 56th overall and will forfeit their 116th selection after protecting import forward, Matvey Guskov. The 56th overall pick may be upgraded as teams can elect to surpass their selection(s) if they choose.
Last season, the team selected Guskov in the first round, 42nd overall in the CHL Import Draft. The Nizhnekamsk, Russia native, played his draft eligible season in London, where he scored 12 goals and totalled 30 points in 2018-2019. Guskov was recently selected by the Minnesota Wild in last weekend's NHL Entry Draft.
