Giant refrigerator-looking thing. Pittsburgh Penguins logo on it. Phil Kessel sticking out.

That is the scene Evgeni Malkin shared on Twitter on Thursday.

It is as funny as it sounds, but it's funnier when you realize that the cold therapy tube Kessel is standing in also affected his hair.

Kessel's hair is blown way out and back during the session, likely from the steam rising up out of the machine.

To his credit, the Penguins points leader knew what he looked like.

"How's my hair look? Just tell me," Kessel joked to his teammates. "It looks good, eh? I knew it."

Never change, Phil. Never, ever change on us.
