Gallery | USHL | Muskegon Lumberjacks vs Youngstown PhantomsNovember 13, 2018
The USHL is an important league to watch if you want to know the players in the upcoming NHL drafts. By now you have heard of the success of the Lumberjacks. If not, strap in.
The Muskegon Lumberjacks aren’t a team to be intimidated. Ending the past weekend with a 12-2-0 record, the Lumberjacks still know each game they must give their all. Muskegon had a three game weekend. Two games against Youngstown and one against the second place team in their division, the Central Illinois Rough Riders. The Jacks took a 2-1 record for the weekend against these teams. This past weekend was also one for team “firsts”. Netminder Keegan Karki got his first start, Mikael Hakkarainen got his first hat trick of the season and Egor Afanasyev contributed a goal for the third straight game.
This gallery features Alex Gaffney, Egor Afanasyev, Jagger Joshua, and Keegan Karki among others! The question isn’t whether the Lumberjacks can keep this up. The question isn’t even if the USHL is a notable league. The question is how many ways can we try make you see how important is this USHL team.
