Interview with returning coach Nathan Parrish after sale of Junior A Hockey Team.

The Knights of Meaford of the Greater Metro Hockey League have confirmed a series of alterations to the club.

Switzerland native Didier Chollet -- whose son played for the Knights last year and was dealt earlier this year -- has purchased the Knights from Mike Fish

Along with the purchase, the club has announced Meaford businessman Brian Johnson is the new general manager, plus Nathan Parrish is back as coach of the club.

Parrish coached the team last year in their first season of operation.

In their expansion season, the Knights were owned and operated by the Greater Metro Junior Hockey League.

The league sold the franchise to Michael Fish in the off season.

The Knights struggled under the new ownership both on the ice and in other areas of the operation.

With a record of "3 and 18", it's reported that the Knights players refused to get on the bus Sunday for their scheduled game at Sequin.

The Knights will be at home Thursday night when they host the Cambridge Bears.

Game time Thursday is 7:30 PM at the Meaford & St Vincent Community Centre.
