There are a lot of athletes with bad hair, and the world of hockey is no exception. Ice hockey is an incredibly tough game and needs players who are just crazy enough, especially at the highest level, that they come with some of the most unique personalities in sports. This individual style unfortunately extends to what they've got going on under the helmet - and from mullets, to crazy curls, and long, luscious locks, the hockey players here have the absolute worst hair in NHL hockey.
Hockey players are courageous, reckless, wild and not afraid to show any of these characteristics. They are also not afraid of showing off their spectacular dental work, uniquely manicured facial hair, and the bad hairstyles of, well, about what you'd expect from pro hockey stars. Hair in the NHL always has been, and always will be, something to behold.
On any given NHL game night, the arena will almost certainly feature a couple of spectacular mullets, some awful helmet hair, some questionable decisions and, generally speaking, the worst hairstyles in not only the NHL, but in the entire sporting landscape.Whether it's the all-time classic curly mullet of Jaromir Jagr or the unique styling of modern day stars like Patrick Kane and Drew Doughty, the National Hockey League is sure to produce some of the worst hairstyles in all of sports history.
Okay, it was for charity, so being too hard on Brad Marchand isn't totally fair. That being said, the 3/4 shaved dome, with a loose, stringy mullet in the back is about as bad as it gets.
Finding a quality photo of Al Iafrate's miraculous hair is tricky, but he simply must be included. It wouldn't be right to construct a list about hair in the NHL and not have the legendary hair of Al Iafrate represented.
George Parros has done a number of things to his hair, but the picture above gives you a pretty good idea of his dedication to making sure his hair is one of the highlights of any night on the ice.
Dave Kryskow was never the biggest name during his professional hockey career, but he was well known. Kryskow kept an odd hairstyle under his helmet which made it look as if his face was a photograph and his hair was the frame holding it in place. Had he grown a full beard to go with his hairstyle it would have certainly been a sight to see.
