It’s a pretty big number that not a lot of coaches see.
But Aberdeen Wings head coach Scott Langer now knows what it feels like to have 600 wins under his belt.
Langer picked up the milestone win over the weekend when the Wings played the Bismarck Bobcats on the road. Saturday’s win, a 2-1 nail-biter that was snagged during a shoot out, pushed him into the illustrious spot.
“When I hit a milestone, I think about all the good people that I was able to surround myself with, the people that helped me get here,” he said after Saturday’s win. “I also give credit to all the high-character young men I have been blessed to coach.”
Langer won his 450th game during his first season behind the bench win the Wings. His 500th win came in March 2018, and his 550th came a year later in March 2019.
