CALGARY - Brooks Macek scored a hat trick and the Calgary Hitmen had five power-play goals Wednesday to thump the Brandon Wheat Kings 10-2 in Western Hockey League play.

Pavlo Padakin and Chase Lang each added a pair for the Hitmen (25-10-4). Brady Brassart, Zane Jones and Austin Calladine, who along with Lang had his first WHL goal, also scored.

Chad Robinson and Braylon Shmyr, a 15-year-old associate player from Calgary with his first WHL goal, replied for Brandon (14-21-4).

The Hitmen outshot the Wheat Kings 44-18.

Chris Driedger picked up his 20th win for Calgary with 16 saves.

The Hitmen were 5 for 9 on the power play while the Wheat Kings were 1 for 3.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
