The London Knights and Flint Firebirds have completed a trade. The Knights have traded forward, Napanee native and current Strathroy Rocket, Emmet Pierce to the Firebirds in exchange for Flints sixth round selection in the 2021 OHL Priority Selection – conditional. Knights General Manager Mark Hunter says Pierce has been a standout individual on and off the ice during his time as a member of the London Knights organization. Pierce was originally selected by the Knights in the fourth round of the 2017 OHL
Priority Selection. He was playing in Strathroy with the Rockets of the GOJHL during the last two seasons.
