London Knights great Rob Schremp loses Memorial Cup ring

LONDON, Ont. — Normally, when one thinks of "missing rings," what comes to mind is a powerhouse team that stumbled at the finish line, not the 2005 London Knights.

Yet it's apt. On Friday, Knights alumnus Rob Schremp, who was one of the leading scorers on the '05 team that dominated major junior hockey and won the Memorial Cup, lost his championship ring from that season. Schremp confirmed on Sunday that it disappeared while he was at Budwieser Gardens watching the first game of the tournament.

It's probably a reach to see a metaphorical connection between one of the 2005 Knights' star losing a memento from that championship season while watching a game where the current iteration had 51 shots on goal and lost 1-0. It's just a bunch of stuff that happened. There is still a lot of hockey to be played.

Either way, a championship ring is an irreplaceable keepsake. Perhaps the hockey gods will come through for Schremp, who plays for the Swiss club Zug.
