Dale Hunter is returning to his old head coaching job with the London Knights.

The Ontario Hockey League club announced Tuesday that Hunter will resume his role effective immediately and that his brother Mark will continue his duties as general manager.

Hunter had served as Knights head coach since 2001 before leaving the team last November to accept a head coaching job with the Washington Capitals. He resigned from that position in May.

Mark Hunter handled general manager and coaching duties when his brother left for the NHL. He guided the Knights to the second OHL championship in team history last month.

London made it to the final of the MasterCard Memorial Cup but dropped a 2-1 overtime decision to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's Shawinigan Cataractes.

In 688 career games as Knights head coach, Dale Hunter has a 451-189-23-25 record.
