The North American Hockey League (NAHL) announced its Gongshow Flow of the Month winners for October 2012. This month awards go to NAHL player Cody Von Rueden, a defenseman for the Soo Eagles. This month’s fan award goes to Jake Rutkoske.
Honorable Mentions went to (alphabetical): Eric Rivard (Soo Eagles), Patrick Churchill, Jamie MacMinn and Brent Noseworthy.
Von Rueden, who is a 20-year-old defenseman for the Soo Eagles, is having a great season thus far. The native of Northbrook, Illinois, was one of the nominees for the NAHL Defenseman of the Month for October. His eight points to date leads all Soo Eagles defensemen. No doubt, it is thanks in some small part to his well-established flow. With a classic slick look on top, Von Rueden lets most of his hair do the talking in the back. The blonde curls are prominent and are very noticeable coming out of his M11 helmet. No doubt, when he snipes one from the blueline, his flow is part of the celebration.
The other award for October went to NAHL fan Jake Rutkoske. Rutkoske, who is a hockey player himself for Romeo High School in Michigan, may have one of the best flows seen in the history of the NAHL Flow of the Month. His flow is so good that he may be the early candidate for Flow of the Year. His blond, flowing hair resembles that a young Ric Flair.
During the month of November, Gongshow and the NAHL will team up for their ‘Movember’ campaign, as NAHL coaches, staff and players will support Men’s health and cancer awareness by growing all kinds of mustaches. Players and fans are not only encouraged to submit their best ‘flows’ at the end of the month, but also their best ‘mo’s’ to show off their mustaches in support of the NAHL’s Movember campaign.
To enter the contest for the month of November, submit your best #Flow of the Month pictures by November 30th to @NAHLHockey and @GongshowGear. Two winners will be selected on December 1st . Winners will receive a Gongshow Gear hat.
