Brooks Macek scores 3 as Calgary Hitmen roll over Brandon Wheat Kings 10-2

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.

Brandon's Curtis Honey stopped 23-of-29 shots before being replaced by Corbin Boes, who fared no better by giving up four goals on 15 shots.

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

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
