First round of the 2018 USHL Playoffs is set

By @MichaelCaples –

The Muskegon Lumberjacks ended the regular season on Saturday.

On Monday, they will be hosting a postseason game at L.C. Walker Arena.

The USHL has finalized its schedule for the first round of the 2018 Clark Cup Playoffs, and the ‘Jacks are playing host.

Here is the first-round schedule for everybody, starting with West Michigan’s USHL program.

USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program holds the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference, which means they will take on the lowest-seeded team that advances to the second round.

The second round is expected to take place next weekend.
