We have some sad news to pass along from the hockey world on Monday morning.

In an article in the London Press Press, it was revealed that Logan Hunter, former Knights forward and nephew of team owners and former NHLers Mark and Dale, has passed away at the age of 39 following a short battle with pancreatic cancer.

"He wasn't scared and tried to get things done and be physical," Knights GM Mark Hunter said. "He was a passionate young man who loved his family, his hockey, his wife and kids. It's been tough. You don't expect something like this. It's terrible. It's difficult for Dale (Logan's uncle and Knights head coach), but Ricky (Steadman) and Dylan (Hunter, Knights assistant coaches) grew up together from the time they were little guys all around the farm."

Logan Hunter spent five years in the Ontario Hockey League, four with the London Knights and one with the Peterborough Petes where he put up 125 points and 527 penalty minutes in 289 games.

Following his time in the OHL, Hunter went on to play in the now-defunct United Hockey League for the Port Huron Flags, before wrapping up his playing career in the OHA Senior league with the Petrolia Squires during the 2006-07 season.

The thoughts of everyone here at Blade of Steel are with Hunter's family and friends at this difficult time.
