SIOUX CITY | So why playoff Mohawks for the Sioux City Musketeers as they begin playoff action against Sioux Falls on Tuesday night?
We have all heard of playoff beards in the NHL but I will let Musketeers captain Neal Pionk explain.
"We have some young guys on the team, myself included, that can only grow a partial beard," the captain said. "Last year we dyed our hair black, but the guys didn't want to do anything with black or bleach this year so we decided guys wanted to do mullets. Guys like me with short hair have to do Mohawks."
So there you have it. It's mullets and Mohawks for the Musketeers this season.
Will it lead to a Clark Cup?
"It is funny how it works because everyone gets funny-looking haircuts and everyone laughs at each other, but in reality we all become closer. If you become closer as a team it helps you win.
"Whether it is communication or chemistry on the ice it can boost all of those things in the playoffs."
Hey, it's hockey. It it gets you the cup then it is brilliant.
