RED DEER, Alta. - The London Knights can call themselves the best team in the Canadian Hockey League.

Matthew Tkachuk scored his second goal of the game 7:49 into overtime as the Knights captured the 2016 Memorial Cup on Sunday by downing the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 3-2.

It's London's second Memorial Cup, with its other coming in 2005.

Christian Dvorak also scored for the Knights, who entered the final on a 16-game win streak. Tyler Parsons made 29 saves.

London's Mitchell Marner was named the tournament's most valuable player.

Francis Perron and Julien Nantel scored for the Huskies. Chase Marchand stopped 30-of-33 shots.
