As the 2014-15 regular season is wrapping up, February (or FLOWbruary as we call it) offers a great look at how far players have come in growing their flow. What started as a dream and a vision in August and September has now turned into 6 months of fabulous flow as we look ahead to the final month of the regular season and the impending excitement of the Robertson Cup Playoffs.
There were some great submissions to date, but there was something special about our winner. He combined a great looking and messy flow with an awesome submission picture, complete with fashion style and flare.
With that said, the North American Hockey League (NAHL) announced its Gongshow Flow of the Month winner for February 2015.
The winner this past month is forward Luka Maver from the Topeka RoadRunners.
Maver, 17, is in his first season playing in the NAHL with the RoadRunners. The native of Ljubljana, Slovenia, has played in 36 regular season games to date, recording six points. His first caeer NAHL goal came in a 5-2 win in Corpus Christi back on October 18th.
Maver (6’1/165) also played this season in the World Junior Championships for Slovenia in Division 1A, where he had three points in five games. Prior to that he played U20 and U18 hockey the past couple of seasons in both Slovenia and Austria.
Most of the time, when we see Flow of the Month submissions, we just look at a player’s hair. In this case, we not only get a good look at Maver’s nice salad, but he mixed in some fashion points as well.
First his hair… a nice classic look that has been in action since his Day 1 headshot since arriving in the United States. With some added length, he is now able to wash, put a little product in it, flair out the back into a nice, controlled nest and then…. Viola... A perfect head of hockey hair that is messy and flowriffic.
However, Maver takes the next step with his submission picture, which is complete with old-school 70’s, off-white butterfly collar dress shirt that is buttoned down to at least the third button to expose some chest. Then that is combined with awesome gold chain that glistens in the picture. For all we know, this picture could have been taken before a game or before dancing at the discotheque… we will never know, but we like it!
It is a great throwback look (both hair and style) worthy of being the Flow of the Month and for his efforts Maver will be receiving a Gongshow Gear hat!
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.
To enter the contest for the month of March, submit your best #FlowoftheMonth pictures by March 31st to @NAHLHockey and @GONGSHOWGEAR. Two winners will be selected on April 1st . Winners will receive a Gongshow Gear hat.
