Five London Knights have been included on NHL Central Scouting’s October ‘Players to Watch’ List for the 2020 NHL draft.

Antonio Stranges headlines the Knights on the list. He was one of eight OHLers to be assigned an ‘A’ rating, indicating that he’s a candidate to be a potential first-round pick.

Four Knights players received a ‘C’ rating, suggesting they could be selected somewhere in the fourth, fifth or sixth rounds of the 2020 draft.
