Meet the Owner! Muskegon Lumberjacks Dan Israel

You wouldn't guess in a million years who the owner of the Muskegon Lumberjacks is if you passed him by at a game, and quite honestly....I think he'd be OK with that because the glitz, glamour and idea of being the "big shot" are pretty quickly swept aside when you meet Dan Israel.

A long time hockey fan and guy dedicated to the sport Dan Israel took ownership of the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the off season before this years campaign got underway for the USHL franchise and has come to see much more than he expected from both the ownership role as well as a new member of the Muskegon community.  I can tell you first hand....he get's it!




Working for the team myself for I think 4 different owners...maybe 5, I have seen the ebb and flow that you would expect of any sports teams.  Years where you couldn't get a seat and years when I could give out the prizes in 5 minutes and go home, but to me, the Muskegon Lumberjacks are so much more than a sports team.  Hockey is such a tradition in Muskegon because all winter long, we have the option to go to a game, see friends and neighbors and gather to be part of the action.

As the transition from pro hockey to the USHL has gone ok, I think this year is a very pivotal year with the crowd.  There is a renewed energy.  There is more excitement.  There are some faces I have not seen in quite a few years back and some faces I have never seen before.  New people and fans that are seeking out Muskegon, The LC Walker arena and the Lumberjacks!  I think a big part of that is Dan Israel and his "get the job done" attitude.  Work to be the best, offer a true value to the town and be an opportunity for players, staff and fans to develop and watch the next generation of NHL players right here in Muskegon.  His commitment is real as you'll see in the clip below.



As you can see, the passion is real.  The commitment is there and we have a long time partner in the Muskegon community with Dan.   Now that you know what he looks like, make sure you say hi at a game if you like.  Speaking of games...take a look at the link below.  It will take you directly to the Lumberjacks schedule!  Tuesday December 29th is car load night so bring as many as you can in a car and get in to see for yourself!  We'll see you a the game!
