It's the most wonderful time of the year.
The Minnesota State High School hockey tournament is a classic event that features the best teams in the Land of 10,000 Lakes playing in front of an NHL-capacity crowd at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
The hockey is good – but the hair might be even better. See, the kids go all out for the tournament and one mysterious man has taken it upon himself to compile the best looks from the ceremonial opening lineups. This year's installation really takes things to the next level with butter sculptures, Spam and cameos by Barry Melrose and the Islanders' Matt Martin.
Behold the Flow:
For the record, the Wayzata Trojans won the 2A title (for bigger schools), while the Hermantown Hawks took the 1A title (for smaller schools) after losing the final six straight years.
