The Granite City Lumberjacks won the West Division over the weekend, coming back to win the conference after starting the weekend in second place. The Lumberjacks will now be at home this week to take on the Mason City Toros in the first round of the playoffs.


The Granite City Lumberjacks are your 2023-2024 NA3HL West Division Regular Season Champions! The Jacks will have home ice advantage throughout the West Division playoffs.

The division championship comes after beating the previous first-place team, Rochester Grizzlies Friday night 6 to 4 in Rochester and then taking their game to Alexandria for the last game of the regular season, to hang on to their championship after defeating Rochester the night before.
