London, Ont. – The London Knights are excited to announce that the team has signed another one of their second-round draft picks from the 2020 OHL Priority Selection, Colton Smith. Smith was drafted 25th overall.
“Colton is an offensively gifted forward that is able to use his size to create space and make plays,” said Mark Hunter, Co-Owner and General Manager of the London Knights. “We are pleased to welcome Colton to the London Knights organization and we look forward to having him here in London and watching his continued development.”
Smith was the Knights’ second selection from the Kanata Lasers program during the 2020 OHL Priority Selection; selecting Ben Bujold with their first selection, 19th overall.
