|Head coach||Bob Leslie|

The Knights became the first British team to reach the finals of the Continental Cup in January 2001, where they narrowly missed taking the title at their first attempt. When the Superleague folded after the 2002-03 season and the London Arena was sold, the team announced that it would "not be icing" in the 2003-04 season.
The team shared its name with the Ontario Hockey League team, the London Knights, but the origin of the name was from the then policy of Anschutz Entertainment Group to brand its ice hockey franchises with a regal theme associated with its flagship Los Angeles Kings NHL franchise, hence the names Manchester Monarchs, Reading Royals and the now-defunct Munich Barons.
