The Knights won the AJHL Championship during the 2012/2013 season. The Knights came out victorious in the best of three series against the Northern Cyclones and earned the AJHL President's Cup. The Knights lost the first game of the series 2-0 against the Cyclones. The Knights bounced back from their first loss of the playoffs with a lopsided 9-2 win. During the last game the Cyclones had a 2-1 lead and it looked like they would hoist the President's Cup, but Knights forward Matt Cessna tied the game at 2-2 with just 22 seconds remaining in the third period. Then, with just over four minutes remaining in the first overtime, Matt Cessna scored the game-winner. For his in-game heroics, Cessna was named the Most Valuable Player of the Playoff Championship Series. The Knights 2012/2013 AJHL Championship Team contained some well-known last names in the hockey world, including team captain Jack Ceglarski (Grandson of Len Ceglarski) and the defenceman Oscar Nyquist (Brother of Gustav Nyquist).
