Mack Byers had a hat-trick and two assists to cap off an eight-point weekend as the Wings cruised to a 6-2 win on Saturday over the Blizzard. Goals from Byers and Jakub Breault in the 1st period put Aberdeen ahead 2-0. The lead swelled to 4-0 in the 2nd period as Byers scored two more times to complete his hat-trick. St. Cloud made it a 4-2 game right after that with goals from Ryan O'Neil and Brock Draeger, but the Wings held firm and more goals from Huston Karpman and another from Breault. Wings goalie Henry Welsch made 22 saves in the win, while Sam Metcalf made 32 saves in the loss.
