I don't belong to Facebook (and have no desire to do so) so am wondering how I will be able to watch any or all of his games this season.

Joyce B. You don't have to belong to Facebook to get Fast Hockey online (if the Lumberjacks games are broadcast there?)...It costs some $ to get the games...I suggest you get a family member or friend to help you get set up if you aren't "up" on the tech stuff (if they are)
....You can even watch the games on a big screen if you, are like, using a laptop (with a HDMI cable out capabilitie) to a TV (with HDMI in) and set the tv to yada, yada, yada and always keep the PC RAM "clean" and yada yada yada
....an HDMI cable is cheap at a local big box electronics dept. (doesn't have to be a $50+ monster cable) ....good luck!

PS and FYI Joyce: This free game and subject title posted is a USHL game....I see the LumberJacks play in the EHL, has 2 teams, and your grandson is on the Premier teams roster.
