Franchise history
2016–2017: St. Clair Shores Fighting Saints
2017-present: North Shore Knights


In 2016, St. Clair Shores, Michigan were granted an FHL expansion team for the 2016–17 season.[1] The team went on to play in neutral site games in Battle Creek, Michigan, and Kingsville, Ontario,[2] due to poor attendance in St. Clair Shores. When the schedule was released for the 2017–18 season, the Fighting Saints were listed with home games in Gravenhurst, Ontario, Témiscaming, Quebec, South River, Ontario, and Kingsville, Ontario.[3] The team was later announced to have relocated to Kingsville as the North Shore Knights.[4] The Fighting Saints' ownership group was headed by Michal Kolarik, who also owns the local Kingsville Kings junior hockey team[5] and many players from the Kings also played on the Fighting Saints prior to the relocation.[2]

Over the course of the season, the team had multiple head coaches in Jiri Micka and Stephen Esau. By December 2017, the Knights would forfeit or attempt to reschedule most of their home games before the team would forfeit all remaining home games after February 11. At the end of March, the Knights released all players and staff.
