Mark Hunter returns to role as general manager of OHL’s Knights
The London Knights announced on Friday that Mark Hunter will be assuming the role of general manger.
“I am very happy to be back in London,” said Hunter, who is also the team’s owner and vice-president, in a press release. “We have a strong group within our organization and I look forward to returning to work with everyone to develop an even stronger team for our fans and for our city and the community.”
Hunter most recently spent time as an assistant general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs and left after the team promoted fellow assistant GM Kyle Dubas to general manager. Hunter spent 14 years as GM of the Knights prior to his time with the Maple Leafs.
Current Knights general manager Rob Simpson will now serve as associate general manager.
“Rob and I will be working together every day in order to achieve the goals of our organization,” Hunter said. “He has done an outstanding job in all facets of his position and I look forward to continuing to work with him on all elements within our organization.
“We are excited for this upcoming season and look forward to bringing another competitive team forward to entertain and excite our fans.”
