The London Knights have been a powerhouse since the dark days of the mid 1990’s when they set CHL records for futility. When the Hunter brothers purchased the team, they stepped the team up to a higher level. Every year sees more Knights enter the world of professional hockey.

As of the start of the 2009-10 season, the following list of players were employed somewhere in the world by professional hockey teams. Brendan Shanahan has since retired.
