Aberdeen forward Byers makes NCAA D1 commitment

November 26, 2019
The Aberdeen Wings, proud members of the North American Hockey League (NAHL), are pleased to announce that forward Mack Byers has committed to play NCAA Division 1 Hockey for Northern Michigan University in the WCHA.
Byers, 20, is a recent addition to the Wings roster and in his final season of junior hockey, but no stranger to the NAHL. The 6’1/175 lbs. native of Long Lake, Minnesota has 5 points (2 goals, 3 assists) in just 5 games played for the Wings.  
Byers started the 2019-20 season playing in the USHL for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders. He previously played in the NAHL during the 2017-18 season with the Philadelphia Rebels.
“Mack has been a great addition to this year’s team.  He not only cares a great deal about his game, but he also cares for his teammates.  His work ethic and determination will make him a solid Wildcat,” said Wings Head Coach Scott Langer.
Northern Michigan University is located in Marquette, MI.  They play in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA).  They are currently 7-5-2 overall and 5-3 in the WCHA.  This weekend they will be playing @ Alabama Huntsville.  The Wildcats are coached by former Minnesota Gopher great, Grant Potulny.  Coach Potulny is in his 3rd season as Head Coach. 
“I am very excited for what the future holds at Northern Michigan.  I can’t wait to be a part of such a great program.  I would like to thank the Odde Family, my coaches, teammates  and the Aberdeen Wings organization for providing me with this opportunity.  I’m looking forward to the rest of the season in Aberdeen,” said Byers.
