Dale Hunter is returning as head coach of the Ontario Hockey League champion London Knights.
Hunter will resume his role effective immediately and his brother Mark will continue his duties as general manager.
Dale Hunter served as Knights head coach from 2001 before leaving the team last November to accept a head coaching job with the Washington Capitals of the NHL. He resigned from the Capitals in May.
Mark Hunter handled general manager and coaching duties when his brother left for the NHL. He guided the Knights to their second OHL championship in team history.
London advanced to the final of the MasterCard Memorial Cup but dropped a 2-1 overtime decision to the Shawinigan Cataractes.
