At a news conference Monday, the club unveiled its 2019 20 jerseys, swapping last year’s black and white livery for classic green and white.
It’s a change inspired by the Knights’ glory days, said general manager Mark Hunter, hearkening back to when team won a Memorial Cup in 2005 and dominated the league much of the decade.
“The 2005 team was a special team, and (these) jerseys are basically a spinoff of that. It’s a big day for the London Knights,” Hunter said. “We all know the legacy of the 2005 team. The helmet’s black eye hole, for example, has been changed to green. The team’s jerseys white for home, green for away are designed to be simple and sleek.
## ## “I think it’s a good combination of history and little bright colour to it. Sometimes, a change brightens everything up,” Hunter said.
“The sweater really represents the players and the past players, and we’re excited about that legacy.”
