Best Heads of Hair in the NHL
What’s the biggest downside about hockey helmets? They cover up too much of that gorgeous hair hiding just underneath. Thankfully for us, hockey players never shy away from showing off their immaculate hair once they step off the ice.
So, which NHL players have the greatest heads of hair below those helmets? It’s nearly impossible to narrow down our favorites. However, we can’t get enough of these 9 hockey star’s perfect locks.
Sure. This New York Rangers superstar doesn’t need any more accolades than he already has, but who could deny adding locks like that on any “Hockey Hair Best Of” list? Certainly not us!
This Swedish sensation turns heads on and off the ice. Between winning Olympic gold for his home country, breaking endless goaltending records and being crowned “King Henrik” by his ever-loyal Rangers fans, this legendary goalie will be remembered both for his talent and his majestic mane.
Who wouldn’t be obsessed with the long, luscious locks on this Vancouver Canucks player’s head? Boeser not only boasts a resumé filled with Rookie of the Year awards and an all-star status—he also can easily add amazing hair to the “exceptional talent” section.
Whether you want to be him or be with him, who can resist the dark, flowing locks of current Dallas Stars winger and Norway native, Mats Zuccarello? Maybe it’s just us, but we see a little Jon Snow behind those irresistible brown curls.
But Mats is so much more than a good looking hockey star. He’s also won countless awards both in Europe and here in the U.S. including the NHL’s Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award and the MVP in Sweden’s premier league.
Here we go again. Another Swedish-born hockey player with an Olympic medal and absolutely stunning hair.
Carl Hagelin was the first Swede to ever play for the University of Michigan. He also pushed the Wolverines to multiple championships—and brought in plenty of recognition for himself before being drafted into the NHL. Today, he plays as a top winger for the Washington Capitals where he lets his locks flow free.
Though he often chose a tamer mane later in his career, Scott Hartnell, the longtime power forward for the Philadelphia Flyers, was known almost as much for his flow as his intense abilities on the ice.
He may have retired in 2018 after two decades in the NHL. However, Hartnell can rest assured knowing his red, bushy curls will remain legendary for years to come.
Whatever Gabe Landeskog’s secret is to hitting the ice with such fantastic hair, we wish this former Rookie of the Year would share it with us.
This blonde phenom had been playing as a forward on the Colorado Avalanche since 2012. He’s also been known to sport more than a swooping, sculptured coif. His past hair styles have included a closely cut mohawk and facial hair that nears on mountain man.
Talk about a double threat! Erik Karlsson—a two-time NHL best defenseman winner and current San Jose Sharks player—shows off more than amazing head hair. He’s got great facial hair to go along with it.
Also, as our fourth Swede to nab a spot on the list and score and Olympic medal (Yup. Gabe Landeskog did it too), it’s clear the Nordics know not only how to play stellar hockey. They know how to look good while doing it.
We’re taking a quick blast to the past for this one, but a list about great hockey flows can’t skip the Great One’s epic mullet.
It may not rank as the greatest hockey mullet of all time—and it surely didn’t last throughout his entire career like some players. Still, for history’s sake alone, Wayne Gretzky’s hair deserves a spot on our list.
So, if Gretzky didn’t have the NHL’s best mullet ever—who did? With so many epic 80s and 90s hockey hair, picking one ‘do is impossible. However, it’s hard to dispute that Jaromir Jagr deserves a spot near the top.
This Czech-born superstar not only had a nearly twenty-year NHL career—he also sported an epic mullet nearly the entire time. Oh, and he won two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburg Penguins, has scored the second most points in NHL history, is an Olympic Gold Medalist and much more.
Those are all incredible feats, but are any as great as his hair?
