Twenty years ago today — March 23, 2003 — the University of Minnesota Duluth won it’s third consecutive NCAA Women’s Hockey Frozen Four championship defeating Harvard 4-3 in double overtime at the DECC Arena. The news footage embedded above is from KBJR-TV.
A long time ago, in a rink far, far away, the best salads and skullets, mullets and manes descended on the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament in St. Paul. Hockey-hair video maker John King is back with his annual compilation of the best flow in the state.
Wind up the flow Ferris wheel, because hockey-hair video maker John King is back with his annual Minnesota High School Hockey Tournament salad reel. Congratulations to Gavin Blomdahl of Hairmantown for topping the charts and letting the game come to him.
The opinionated hockey YouTube channel “idontgivetkachuk” recently featured Duluth native Robb Stauber in an eight-and-a-half minute video tribute/critique. Slicing together some of the former goaltender’s crazier plays, video creator Paul DeRienzo presents Stauber as a wild and perhaps undisciplined goalie who lived outside the crease.

The UMD Bulldogs hockey season came to an end last night with a 3-2 loss in overtime to the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Before it was over, Sam Ali had to report on the game without using ESPN footage. He figured it out.
Masks, a global pandemic and no cameras on the ice for intros. Hockey hair video maker John King did the only thing he could do this year — go with the flow.
Hairmentown gets a brief mention at the 2:30 mark for it’s junior varsity hockey hair, with King noting JV should stand for “juicy vinaigrette” when referencing the salad of the Hawks.
The University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs and the University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks redefined what it means to pull an all-nighter in college. Last night’s regional hockey tournament final at Sheels Arena in Fargo was the longest game in NCAA playoff history.
Freshman forward Luke Mylymok scored at 2:13 of the fifth overtime to give the Bulldogs a 3-2 victory and a berth in the NCAA Frozen Four in Pittsburgh.
From the makers of the infamous “hockey hair” videos comes this profile of the Grand Rapids High School Pep Band. What came first, the wagon on the ice or the band behind it?
