LONDON, ONT. - A former London Knights star who led the team to Memorial Cup glory in 2005 has lost his championship ring at Budweiser Gardens.

Rob Schremp, who played three seasons with the Knights from 2003-2006, had just finished skating with his old team on Friday when he noticed his 2005 Memorial Cup championship ring was missing.

He had put the diamond-studded ring that has his name engraved on it into his pocket, but it must have fallen out somewhere around the Budweiser Gardens, Schremp said.

“I'm pretty choked about it,” he said of the missing ring. “It means a lot to me.”

The former NHLer took to Twitter in an effort to locate his prized ring.

“This went MIA yesterday at the Bud Gardens . . . shot in the dark but if anyone finds my ring please return it,” Schremp tweeted, along with a photograph of the ring, to his more than 20,000 followers on Saturday.

The tweet was re-tweeted more than 700 times by Sunday, but there's still no sign of the ring.

A spokesperson for the Knights said they are aware of the lost ring and staff are looking for it.

Schremp, a 5-foot-10 centre, was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the first round of the 2004 NHL draft. He went on to play for the New York Islanders and Atlanta Thrashers, before moving to the National League A, where he plays for EV Zug.
