Beyond giving the Chicago Blackhawks another potential game-breaker, the trade that brought Kris Versteeg back to the “Windy City” also opened the door for the return of his various follicle shenanigans.

His 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs gameplan might be his best yet (or worst, depending upon your tastes). CSNChicago.com passes along word that Versteeg is modeling his hair after rapper Macklemore.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison, first with video of Versteeg:

“I call it the ‘Steeglemore,’” Versteeg said. “It’s a mix between myself, (rapper) Macklemore and a little bit of anything else in between. So, it’s got a lot going on here.”

This isn’t the first time the 27-year-old has mixed hip hop with hockey:

In all honesty, it’s mostly an exciting development because Versteeg always seems to have a trick up his sleeve when it comes to his appearance. PHT has gotten a lot of mileage out of his “Hulk Hogan hair”

Let’s face it, the only way he’s topping this is by going “Flock of Steegles.”
