It's the grand Flow-nale.

Game On Minnesota named its annual All Hockey Hair Team from the 2019 Minnesota High School State Tournament.

This year's honorees showed off a deluge of diverse 'dos, as is the usual.

In a clip posted to YouTube you can see them all: The Lion's Mane, The Inboard Motor, The Titanic, The Twin Tributaries and plenty more. Nolan Widman of Class A Tournament Champion St. Cloud Cathedral was even dubbed Michaelange-flow. Cathedral topped Greenway/Nashwauk-Keewatin 5-2 in the final.

North Branch brought the "Flow Forest" to the tournament, but Duluth East had a plethora of vintage hockey hair in 2019 and were named Best in Flow.

The spectacle caught the attention of a few NHL players, as congratulatory messages from Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jake Guentzel, Minnesota Wild forwards Jordan Greenway and Luke Kunin, Vancouver Canucks forward Brock Boeser, New York Rangers defenseman Brady Skjei and Rangers prospect Vinni Lettieri all weighed in with words of encouragement.

Even the Nature Boy himself, Professional Wrestling and WWE Hall of Fame member Ric Flair weighed in on the savage styles.

This year's video was big time and that will likely be it for the All Hockey Hair Team, which says this year's video will be the last and is asking for contributions to the Hendrickson Foundation, a Minnesota-based group and partner of USA Hockey, that promotes inclusivity by helping bring the game to those with disabilities.
