You know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words (or maybe a few hundred dropped jaws). Check out Evgeni Malkin’s … “throwback” hair style from the Pittsburgh Penguins media day.
And just for good measure, here’s Malkin strutting his stuff in what seems like a professional wrestling-style entrance. (No pyrotechnics or Ric Flair-style robes, though, sadly.)

I expect Malkin to rebound after struggling to a 77 point season in only 67 games played, but he might night bounce back so easily from the follicle fallout ahead of him. Hopefully he has thick skin to match his slick fade.
