Last year, a foursome from the Burnsville Blaze topped the Minnesota State High School All Hockey Hair Team. This year, it took just a single player’s captivating coiffure to nab the coveted honor.
REAGAN GARDEN’S SALAD
St. Cloud Cathedral forward Reagan Garden came in at No. 1 on the Hair Team with his skull capped by a splendiferous salad ready for primetime shampoo ads.
Garden’s Thor-esque helmet of hair even puts Chris Hemsworth’s mythic mane to shame.
