The North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) announced its Gongshow Flow of the Month winner for February 2013. This month’s award goes to NA3HL player Jake Howie of the Flint Jr. Generals. Honorable mention went to Kyle Whipple of the Breezy Point North Stars.
Howie, 18, who is a forward from Grand Blanc, Michigan, is having a career year for the Jr. Generals this season. He leads the team in scoring with 52 points (21 goals, 31 assists) in 38 games played. Back on September 25th, Howie was recognized as the NA3HL’s #2 star of the week.
The Jr. Generals have clinched a playoff berth and are in 3rd place in the East Division. They still have a chance at the #2 seed and home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
Howie’s recognition this month marks the third time this season a player from the Flint Jr. Generals has been honored with the Flow of the Month award.
Obviously a secret to Howie’s success and the team success in general may be hidden in the hair. Since the calendar has turned to March, Howie has long and flowing hair protruding out the back of his helmet, which is a trademark of any serious hockey player. Some of his scoring magic may lie within his brown locks, which curl up around the end of his helmet. He does however, leave something for the imagination, as we don’t get to see what is happening on top, but he does a great job at showing all of us what ‘hockey hair’ is all about.
With just a few games remaining in the NA3HL regular season, it is time to prepare for the best time of the year… playoffs. With exciting and fun playoff games in March, also comes awesome playoff flow and playoff beards. For the month of March, any sick flow would probably get bonus points with a grizzly playoff beard. By now, player’s flow should be in full effect and March should create some great styles we look forward to seeing.
To enter the contest for the month of March, submit your best #Flow of the Month pictures by March 31st to @NA3HL and @GongshowGear. Two winners will be announced on April 1st. Winners will receive a Gongshow Gear hat.
Gongshow is the exclusive sponsor of the Flow of the Month promotion exclusively on the NA3HL and Gongshow Twitter sites. Fans and players alike are encouraged to submit photos of their best ‘hockey hair’ or ‘flow’ via Twitter by the end of every month during the regular season.
