Now, more than four years later, McGurn’s memory of first stepping into the arena is what he’s called home for his entire career in the OHL.

“I came to Budweiser Gardens for my first training camp and saw the building and thought, ‘This is crazy,'” McGurn recalls.

At that moment, the prospect of a brand new Knighthood couldn’t exactly imagine one day becoming the team’s captain.

“At that point I was just trying to build a team,” McGahn laughs.

Diaco’s memories of the London match go back even further.

Diaco was born in London and believes he started following Knights closely around the age of eight.

“It’s such an honor. It’s really hard to put into words,” explains Diaco. “With the support of the fans, it is such an honor to be a part of this team and to be able to wear the ‘C’. ”

Diaco was a young fan as London had won back-to-back OHL championships in 2012 and 2013.

“I still remember big guys like (Max) Domi and Bo (Horvat), waiting to get their autographs,” Diaco said.
