That’s right players and fans… it’s back! It is time once again for that time-honored tradition that is the Gongshow Flow of the Month. With a new season also comes new players and an entirely new group of beauties to choose from.
With that in mind, the North American Hockey League (NAHL) announced its Gongshow Flow of the Month winners for September 2013.
This month, two NAHL players were honored, as the awards went to Mitch Wedding of the Michigan Warriors and Cory Dunn from the Austin Bruins. Two contrasting hairstyles, but both worthy of the first award of the season.
Wedding is a 19-year-old defenseman for the Warriors, who hails from Ortonville, Michigan. He is in his second season with the Warriors after appearing in 36 games last season, where he also recorded six points. Through six games this season, Wedding has two assists. Wedding spent a small portion of the 2011-12 season in the NAHL with the Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings.
Where Wedding has obviously excelled however is his flow. A look at his side profile and it is easy to tell that this is some veteran NAHL flow in full effect. First, we see a nice nest of hair that has developed and been maintained in the back. This is combined with a nice slicked back look that allows the helmet to fit naturally on the head. Combine all that will the classic unshaven look with the rarely maintained sideburns and you have a classic look for the start of the season. Wedding has put in the necessary hours and minutes on the ice to have this masterpiece labeled as a veteran hockey flow. It’s true to its roots (literally) and one for the rookies to emulate.
In keeping with the defenseman theme of September, we turn to Austin’s Cory Dunn. Like Wedding, Dunn is a 19-year-old d-man from Michigan. This is his first season in the NAHL and so far this year, he has assist through three games with the Austin Bruins. Last season was spent playing for Team Illinois in the HPHL.
Dunn’s flow is a stark contrast to Wedding’s, but just as effective. Dunn also made the veteran move of a side-profile shot, allowing all to see the back flow in its glory. Dunn has spent countless hours maintaining this flow, because not only is it feathered and golden, but it definitely sees a blow dryer and brush on the regular basis. This isn’t your average wake-up, put on a hat and let my flow go type of guy… Dunn pays strict attention to his hair and the style, shape, layout, body, color and health of his hair. Notice the clean shaven face and no side burns? That simply puts the accent and focus right on the hair where it should be.
Fans and players alike are encouraged to submit photos of their best ‘hockey hair’ or ‘flow’ via Twitter by the end of every month during the regular season.
