Tonight marked the final game of the CHL season: the Memorial Cup.

The London Knights, who have lost five games in regulation time in their last 60, took on the crowd favourites, Owen Beck’s Spirit.

It was the Canadian prospect who scored the game’s first goal. On the sixth shot of the game, Beck broke the ice in this ultimate match.

Now in his final junior game, Dumont has finished his career on a high note.

He finished with 236 points in 235 games (including playoffs). I think he’s ready for professional hockey!

We should see him in Laval in 2024-2025.

It’s worth mentioning that the center is not only a good player offensively and defensively, but can also distribute good checks. Easton Cowan (a Leafs prospect) was there to see it for himself.

The 20-year-old had another great chance to score late in the period, but came up against an in-form Michael Simpson.

He got his revenge later, however, with his second goal of the game. He and his team took advantage ofa five-minute power play to double the lead.

After one period, the tournament hosts led 2-0. Worse still, London only registered one shot on goal.

Midway through the period, with London still one shot on goal, Saginaw tripled its lead.

On a breakaway, Joey Willis scored.

The Knights responded immediately.

In the third period, still trailing by two goals, London didn’t give up and closed the gap on their ninth shot of the game.

And on the next shot, Sam Dickinson (the excellent defenseman I’d see in Montreal even if the Habs needed a forward) tied it.

Suddenly, it was 3-3. Wow!

We were heading for overtime, but with seconds left in the game, the tournament host team nailed the opponents’ coffin.

In the end, it was the Spirit who won the Memorial Cup with a 4-3 victory.

Remember that the club was eliminated by London in six in the third round of the OHL series.

Revenge is sweet!
