McKegg, Knights Into Semi-Finals At Memorial Cup


The London Knights have guaranteed themselves at least a berth in the Memorial Cup semi-finals on Friday following a 4-1 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings. Check out the highlights

Leafs prospect Greg McKegg finally scored his first goal in the win since April 11th against Saginaw. McKegg had been dealing with a shoulder injury that cost him the conference final against Kitchener.

“It’s been a long time, but I never got down,” McKegg told the Toronto Sun. “Sure, there were some missed chances and rehab on the shoulder was tough, but you have to stay positive.”

With the win, the Knights are in first place heading into the final game of the round-robin which takes place tonight between Saint John and Shawinigan (7pm on Sportsnet). If the Sea Dogs defeat the Cataractes, London will head straight to the Memorial Cup final on Sunday.

“We’ve put ourselves in a good spot,” McKegg said. “We have to wait to see what happens.”

Here are the two scenarios heading into the game tonight courtesy of the CHL:

Scenario 1:
If SNB beats SHA, then LDN will play in the Championship Final on Sunday and SNB will earn a spot in the Semi-Finals on Friday.  EDM and SHA would play a Tie-Breaker game on Thursday where EDM would be the home team.

 Scenario 2:
If SHA beats SNB, then SHA will play in the Championship Final on Sunday and LDN will earn a spot in the Semi-Finals on Friday.  EDM and SNB would play a Tie-Breaker game on Thursday where SNB would be the home team.
