Sacha Boisvert, C/Muskegon

Sacha Boisvert is another USHL product, having played in 118 regular season games for the Muskegon Lumberjacks, where he served as an alternate captain this past season. Following a sensational 2021-22 campaign at Mount St. Charles Academy, Boisvert burst onto the USHL’s scene last year and logged 45 points and 17 goals in 57 games. 

He parlayed that into 68 points and 36 goals in 61 regular season matchups, and he will only get better when he attends the University of North Dakota for 2024-25 and beyond. 

But like Michael Hage, Boisvert won’t see even AHL ice anytime soon, and he’s another one who can use most, if not all, of his college eligibility before moving up to the professional level. However, considering how quickly he caught on in the USHL, it’s okay to expect him to do the same in Grand Forks. 

His development at the collegiate level may require a little more patience, but at the end of the day, he will be an excellent player who will contribute at the next level. Overall, I would roll with Boisvert over Michael Hage at this point based on the former’s experience. But four to five years into the future, both players should reach a similar level of development following their respective collegiate careers.
