Monday, the North American Hockey League named their Easton Divisional Stars of the Week. Two Aberdeen Wings players were honored for play last week including forward #22 Zach Doerring (F-Chanhassen, MN) named the Central 1st Star of the Week and forward #27 Erik Baskin (F-Minnetonka, MN) was named honorable mention.
The Aberdeen Wings kept their Central Division title hopes alive with three big road wins this past week. Wings forward Zach Doerring, 19, played a big role in all three wins as the Chanhassen, Minnesota native totaled two goals and three assists for five points in the three wins and was also a +5. The week started with a 5-4 win in Bismarck on Wednesday in which Doerring (6’4/190) scored the game-winning goal late in the 3rd period. It continued with a 7-0 win on Friday in Brookings against the Blizzard as Doerring had a goal and an assist. On Saturday, Doerring assisted twice more in a 6-0 win. For the season, Doerring has 19 points in 43 games played for the Wings. “Zach has been great for us the last few weeks. He was rewarded this weekend for his hard work put in. He is getting stronger, more confident and playing with a lot of energy right now. He has also shown great leadership qualities for us. He has been a big part of our recent success,” said Wings head coach Travis Winter.
The Wings are at home this weekend both Friday and Saturday night against the Brookings Blizzard.
