Domi with four points as the Knights clinch another Holody Trophy

LONDON, Ont. - The London Knights have the hardware to prove just how dominant they have been over the last decade.

Max Domi scored twice and added two assists as London crushed its division-rival the Kitchener Rangers 6-1 on Sunday in Ontario Hockey League play.

With the win, the Knights clinched first in the OHL's Western Conference and also secured the Holody Trophy for being the top club in the Midwest Division. It is the eighth time in the last 10 seasons that London has earned the Holody Trophy.

Domi's four-point performance gives him 39 goals and 82 points in 59 games, which moves him into a tie with Seth Griffith for the team lead in points.

Alex Broadhurst scored two goals and assisted on one more for the Knights (46-12-4), who extended their win streak to seven games, and Chris Tierney and Remi Elie added single goals.

Olli Maatta and Tommy Hughes each had two assists for London.

Defenceman Evan McEneny scored the lone goal for the Rangers (36-18-8), who lost for the first time in four outings, while Radek Faksa and Justin Bailey were each a team-worst minus-3.

London's Anthony Stolarz stopped 30 shots for the win as Kitchener's Joel Vienneau made 27 saves in a losing cause.

The Knights went 3 for 7 on the power play while the Rangers failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

The Holody trophy was first awarded in 1998-99 by Joe Holody, who was franchise governor of both the Guelph and Owen Sound Platers.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
