Two More Hockey Hair Gods

So to update my (shall we say) continuing fascination with long-haired hockey players, I spotted two more prime specimens while watching this year's Stanley Cup playoffs. Yes, these guys were the highlights of the entire playoffs for me.

(1) IGOR SHESTERKIN, Russian goalie for the New York Rangers. And he's a real tease about his long hair, too. He knows it's sexy!


(2) MIKA ZIBANEJAD, centre and alternate captain of the New York Rangers. He's from Sweden, but his heritage is Iranian and Finnish. What magnificent long hair, especially before it gets all sweaty!


That's all for now! I'll report back to you again next hockey season!

Lol. That hair must be quite sweaty after a game.

Boud said...

Pretty niche interest!

Bob said...

With adorable hair flip, Shesterkin looks ready for a shamppo ad!

Travel said...

Great hair, and a rough and tumble.

Lady M said...

Mmmm - sweaty long hair - can't say I am a fan.

I have quite long hair, but unfortunately I don't play hockey - although we had some rip-roarin' field hockey games when I was a kid (I had long hair then, too.) We made our own sticks in woodshop at our school. I also have a beard down to my belly0button, and my two cats really like it.

I love your posts, Debra. You are the one blog I always check regularly, and you never disappoint. Even though we don't always share the same interests, I'm always interested in your interests even if they are not mine. You are something I found during COVID, and your site is one of the things that kept me sane. I'm sticking with you. Thank you for everything!

# Dunstan Skinner -- Awww, thanks for your kind words, Dunstan! I'm glad you enjoy my quirky blog. Give your two long-hair-fan kitties a special skritch from me!

Marcia LaRue said...

Shesterkin actually has a black plastic hair band in his hand ... I have one just like it! I find that rather off-putting but then I am old! Never did much care for long hair on the guys!

Tundra Bunny said...

Igor Shesterkin is a worthy contender, but my nominees are from the Tampa Bay Lightning: Defenseman Victor Hedman and Right Winger Nikita "Krafty" Kucherov! ROWWRRRR!

For the record, I don't like sweaty long hair on men either, so I prefer to think of it as a "just out of the shower" look, LOL!

I had 70s long hair for about 10 years. Almost to my shoulders. Now that I'm back in the 70s I might do it again.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Tundra Bunny -- I'll check them out, thanks!

Liz Hinds said...

Oh Igor!

Richard said...

That was fun! Thanks.

I was a hockey fan of the 60s. Sorry, long-haired, freaky, Hippy people. Don't much admire it on the players since the 70s.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I'm a little jealous, I wish I could grow mine that long too!

Igor knows how to work the hair-ography! Doesn't Mika have soulful bedroom eyes?
You are playing with fire here, D! You don't want to lose your lesbian card!

I don't follow hockey. I wonder if I'd follow long hair.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Anonymous E -- My interest is, of course, purely intellectual, I assure you.

A true Canadian sport.

You got me thinking about Chris Simon, a one-time enforcer for the Colorado Avalanche (and Washington Capitals, and other teams). Then I read about what happened to him, and now I am sad. Thanks, Debra!

He had some locks, though.

River said...

One of the young staff member at a local supermarket here wears his hair in a man bun, but recently wore it hanging down his back. It's just past waist length! Thick and gorgeous.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Old Lurker -- Thanks for the link. Yes, gorgeous long hair and very handsome too. Alas, enforcers often had/have troubled lives.

This N That said...

Ewwww...To each her own..not in to sweat!!!!

DVArtist said...

I am sure they made your day. LOL

Adam said...

Hopefully the rink is cold enough to make it not so bad

Kirk said...

Kudos to the photographer for getting that MIKA ZIBANEJAD pic. An action shot if I ever saw one.

Martha said...

That hair flip photo!

Old Lurker said...

You aren't kidding about the troubled lives. Bob Probert died young of a heart attack, and had documented brain damage. Rick Rypien committed suicide. And poor Stu Grimson became a lawyer.

Ur-spo said...

what is this game called hockey? Is it big up there?

roentare said...

I truly believe both of them should be making commercial ads for shampoo company "You are worth it!"
LOL

pam nash said...

Seems to me all that hair would make a good hand-hold to trip someone up. I believe I'd tie it up and tuck it inside the helmet.

Hena Tayeb said...

Go Rangers! Really love Mika's hair. Oddly never really focused on Igor's until now. His goalie gear hides most of it.

yellowdoggranny said...

a reason for me to watch hockey..

Laura Morrigan said...

I do love long hair on a man but it is nice BEFORE it is sweaty haha

Guillaume said...

When the Habs are not playing, I don't really follow hockey.

Rommy said...

Lol hair takes effort and commitment! Especially if it gets all funky from sweat regularly.

Linda said...

Love your long-hair hockey gods posts! They make me envious a little, those men have such great hair! I don't mind sweaty hair as long as it's on television.
