Muskegon Lumberjacks Add Fire Power in 21 Selection USHL Draft

Muskegon Lumberjacks Add Fire Power in 21 Selection USHL Draft

May 19, 2019 Off By Rachel Anderson

The Muskegon Lumberjacks season came to an unfortunate end with elimination from the Clark Cup playoffs. The Chicago Steel booted the Jacks leaving them a nice long summer. Transactions have already taken place and many players have moved on. The season didn’t end after the final whistle, however, for Mike Hamilton and company.

The USHL Phase II Draft is the perfect opportunity to replenish the depleted team. With many of the skaters heading to college and other leagues, Hamilton has the daunting task of reloading the talent. Overall, the Phase II draft was an immense success.

With the USHL draft over and done with, Muskegon is looking at loaded lines for the 2019-20 training camp with their 21 selections.
