Gallery | Muskegon Lumberjacks Home Opening WeekendOctober 16, 2018
L.C. Walker Arena in Muskegon is home to the USHL Muskegon Lumberjacks. In addition to improvements to the interior flow and style of the rink, fans enjoyed watching their team open with a win. The Muskegon Lumberjacks continued their winning streak on October 13, 2018 when they shut down the Chicago Steel with a 6-0 victory. Brandon Bussi was the net-minder for the Jacks adding yet another shut-out to his resume.
Lumberjack fans also welcomed home Mikael Hakkarainen and former Chicago Steel player who skated with the Jacks most of the 2017-2018 season. October 14, 2018 the Lumberjacks hosted the Youngstown Phantoms. While falling 3-0 in the first period was not ideal, they proved their ability to fight to stay on top. The Jacks answered Youngstown’s goals with three of their own in the second period. Youngstown fell 5-4 in regulation time and the Lumberjacks improved to 6-0-0 on the season. The returning Hakkarainen has picked up three points in two games.
