Lumberjacks name Hamilton head coach
Hockey history is being made for the Muskegon Michael Lorenzen Authentic Jersey Lumberjacks.
On Tuesday, May 15, the Lumberjacks held a press conference at LC Walker Arena to announce big news -- they've hired Nathan Noel Authentic Jersey a new head coach. Mike Hamilton will serve as the fifth head coach in franchise history.

"We're looking to build upon what's already been built," Hamilton said said. "Coach LaFontaine did a great job of instilling value in the guys in the community, making sure they carry themselves in the classroom. So those are things we're going to build upon."
Hamilton is from Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich. and was an assistant coach this past season under John LaFontaine. He worked to develop players and their skills by analyzing videos of them on the ice.

Hamilton has coached hockey for almost 25 years -- he has helped players like Alec Martinez of the LA Kings, Bobby Ryan of the Ottawa Senators and Cam Fowler of the Anaheim Ducks, develop their skills and build their NHL careers.

Mike Hamilton is also the father of former Lumberjack captain Trevor Hamilton, who played in Muskegon from 2014-2016. Trevor Hamilton was named the Big Ten defensive player of the year this spring at Penn State University, and recently signed a one-year contract with the Grand Rapids Griffins. Which makes the Lumberjacks Oscar Fantenberg Authentic Jersey job that much sweeter for Mike.

"For my son to be hopefully down the street in Grand Rapids, or worst case scenario in Toledo, that just adds to it. To be able to have him close and be able to watch him Patrick Maroon Authentic Jersey play whenever possible is special."

The Lumberjacks say Hamilton will oversee Lumberjacks main camp that runs from May 24-27 at LC Walker Arena. The schedule will be released this week on

The Lumberjacks also announced they hired Mike McCall as President of Business Operations. McCall has previously worked alongside the city of Muskegon to renovate LC Walker Arena. He plans on increasing the Lumberjacks visibility in the Muskegon area.
