Not much is known about the Muskegon Lumberjacks, except they're a hockey team. They play in Muskegon, Michigan, and are a part of the USHL, a prospect league with plenty of NHL Draft hopefuls. The team also has a promising prospect named Sacha Boisvert. The young forward could be an excellent part of the Vegas Golden Knights' future, providing scoring and size to the team. While the Wolverine State is known for its passion for hockey, it could also provide Vegas with a key piece they need.

With the team looking for any young talent in their farm system, they could have the University of North Dakota commit in their plans... or they could trade him like past prospects. Still, if selected, there's plenty of reason why Vegas should hold onto the native of Trois-Rivieres, Quebec for the long term.

Of course, that's the price a team pays for going all-in on the Stanley Cup window. While big-time pieces like Tomas Hertl and Noah Hanifin come in, dealing the stars of tomorrow is a fair wager, along with some cap space. Still, that doesn't matter to the group. What matters is winning titles, especially if a bold move is needed. As for Boisvert, that raises a couple of questions. Could he be a part of another deal for the Golden Knights? Or does he have the tools to stay in Sin City for a while?

But that shouldn't be something that should cross Boisvert's young mind. Right now, he's anticipating the moment he hears his name called by Gary Bettman on June 28 at the Sphere. He might be Vegas's first-round pick in the NHL Draft, laying the groundwork for the team's post-contender era.

Sacha Boisvert's profile

Sacha Boisvert is a young, tall forward with a left-handed shot. The 18-year-old stands at 6'2", weighing 179 lbs. The Canadian center hails from Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, and played for AHM Denis Francoeur during his youth hockey days. He does have a cousin named Thomas Boisvert, who's 14 years old and also played for AHM Denis Francoeur.

The Quebec native is well-known for being a force during his last season with Mount St. Charles Academy (2021-22), where he dominated the 15U AAA league. Here, he scored 51 goals and 43 assists in 56 games. After that, it was an ascent of incredible proportions, with the center taking over the USHL.

He was an integral part of the Lumberjacks's success the past two seasons, scoring 53 goals and 60 assists in 118 games. As a result, Muskegon made the Eastern Conference Finals of the Clark Cup playoffs in the USHL this season, getting swept by the Dubuque Fighting Saints.

In a league that has produced names such as this year's projected No. 1 pick, Macklin Celebrini, Boisvert stands out as an NHL Draft prospect with good upside. He's finding his game and building his confidence, which is promising for a team like the Vegas Golden Knights. But that's not all he brings to the table.
